  • Proper policies for the prevention or mitigation of the effects of global warming require profound analysis of the costs and benefits of alternative policy strategies. Given the uncertainty about the scientific aspects of the process of global warming, in this paper a sensitivity analysis for the impact of various estimates of costs and benefits of greenhouse gas reduction strategies is carried out to analyze the potential social and economic impacts of climate change.
  • We are developing a global model of terrestrial productivity and biogeochemical cycling (TERRA) designed to be a component of an Earth System Model being developed at LLNL. An initial version of TERRA incorporating five state variables has been calibrated to 17 vegetation types. During sensitivity analysis, model parameters were individually varied by 10% and the model was run to steady-state. Total system response was found to be most sensitive to parameters affecting soil moisture which, in turn, affects soil respiration rate. Parameters describing optimum soil moisture for soil respiration rate, field capacity, pore volume, root depth and soil organic mattermore » (SOM) decomposition rate, all exhibited significant sensitivity. These findings underscore the importance of the soil system in descriptions of ecosystems dynamics. Future versions of TERRA will divide the soil profile into a series of horizontal layers and include more detailed descriptions of SOM.« less
