Title: ESTIMATING CARBON FLUX AND STORAGE: CONSTRAINT OF THE COMMUNITY LAND MODEL USING OBSERVATIONS AT DIFFERENT TEMPORAL SCALES

Abstract

Summary: Terrestrial ecosystems deliver significant global services through their role in the global carbon cycle, energy balance and feedbacks to the climate system. Model projections generally agree under current ‘equilibrium’ conditions, but, despite extensive empirical research, current ESMs disagree on the long-term effects of climatic change and disturbance on the carbon cycle in part because of knowledge gaps and in part because empirical information is not readily incorporated into models. One way to reduce uncertainty in ESMs is to force them to agree with our best estimates of how ecosystems function. Major activities: We 1) developed and tested phenology and biomass data products, 2) tested which datasets were most suitable for data assimilation, 3) developed the data assimilation approaches at a single site and then expanded this to the globe.
