Abstract

Soils represent the largest terrestrial carbon pool on Earth. Yet emerging theories regarding stabilization of soil organic matter remain poorly represented in global-scale models; thus, underestimating the true uncertainty associated with potential terrestrial carbon cycle – climate feedbacks. With this project we created a testbed to compare and evaluate soil biogeochemical models (W. Wieder at the Univ. of CO, Boulder), data synthesis (R. Phillips, Indiana Univ.) and parameter estimation (S Allison, Univ. CA Irvine) to quantify uncertainty associated with potential soil C changes. This project resulted in 14 Presentations, 14 Publications and helped support the training of three graduate students. A significant accomplishment with this work was the creation of a soil biogeochemical testbed, which forces three soil carbon models (CASA, MIMICS, and CORPSE) with common environmental drivers. This code base is publicly available on PI Wieder’s github page [https://github.com/wwieder/biogeochem_testbed_1.1].
