Title: Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) - Arctic

Abstract

The Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE Arctic) is a 10-year project (2012 to 2022) to reduce uncertainty in ESMs through developing a predictive understanding of carbon-rich Arctic system processes and feedbacks to climate. This is achieved through experiments, observations, and synthesis of existing datasets that strategically inform model process representation and parameterization and enhance the knowledge base required for model initialization, calibration, and evaluation. NGEE Arctic aims to quantify the physical, chemical, and biological behavior of terrestrial ecosystems in Alaska. NGEE Arctic focuses on high-latitude ecosystems underlain by carbon-rich permafrost that are vulnerable to thaw in a warmer climate.
