Terrestrial Ecosystem Interactions with Global Climate and Socio-Economics

The global terrestrial carbon cycle plays a pivotal role in regulating the atmospheric composition of greenhouse gases. Currently it is responsible for removing 25-30% of our emissions every year, an important ecosystem service that may not persist …

Vegetation-climate feedback causes reduced precipitation in CMIP5 regional Earth system model simulation over Africa

Terrestrial ecosystems have been demonstrated to play a significant role within the climate system, amplifying or dampening climate change via biogeophysical and biogeochemical exchange with the atmosphere and vice versa (Cox et al. 2000; Betts et …

The development and evaluation of new SMHI atmosphere-ocean-ice coupled model CA4_NEMO

With the motivation to improve the prediction of climate change impacts, and assess the energy budget and water cycle over North Sea and Baltic Sea region, a new high resolution regional atmosphere-ocean coupled model RCA4_NEMO has been developed in …

Development of an advanced regional climate-ecosystem model for Arctic applications

Cryospheric processes together with their feedbacks play a crucial role in determining rates and patterns of future warming over high-latitude regions. Cryospheric processes including permafrost as well as peatland and associated vegetation, …

GCM characteristics explain the majority of uncertainty in projected 21st century terrestrial ecosystem carbon balance

One of the largest sources of uncertainties in modelling of the future global climate is the response of the terrestrial carbon cycle. Studies have shown that it is likely that the extant land sink of carbon will weaken in a warming climate. Should …

Emerging regional climate change signals for Europe under varying large-scale circulation conditions

A large ensemble of regional climate model projections was investigated regarding if and when they show an emergence of significant climate change signals in seasonal temperature and precipitation within Europe. The influence of the North Atlantic …

A Guidebook for Integrated Assessment and Management of Vulnerability to Climate Change

Vulnerability to climate change is often described as a combination of exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity or ability to manage climate change. The process of assessing is built on a number of exercises in Part 2-3 of this guidebook as well …

Implications of incorporating N cycling and N limitations on primary production in an individual-based dynamic vegetation model

The LPJ-GUESS dynamic vegetation model uniquely combines an individual- and patch-based representation of vegetation dynamics with ecosystem biogeochemical cycling from regional to global scales. We present an updated version that includes plant and …

Climate Change in European Forests: How to Adapt

The management of forest ecosystems requires planning for the long term. A forest management cycle (planting, harvesting, replanting) can range from less than 10 years up to over 100 years in length. Climate change has already caused many changes in …

A vegetation sensitivity approximation for gross primary production in water limited conditions

The most severe impact of climate change on vegetation growth and agriculture is likely to occur under water-limited conditions. Under such conditions the plants optimize the inward flux of CO2 and the outward flux of water vapor (the transpiration) …
