Interdisciplinary science that integrates knowledge of the many interacting climate services of forests with the impacts of global change is necessary to identify and understand as yet unexplored feedbacks in the Earth system and the potential of forests to mitigate climate change. Expand
Global Consequences of Land Use
Global croplands, pastures, plantations, and urban areas have expanded in recent decades, accompanied by large increases in energy, water, and fertilizer consumption, along with considerable losses of biodiversity. Expand
The National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Climate Model: CCM3*
The latest version of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Community Climate Model (CCM3) is described. The changes in both physical and dynamical formulation from CCM2 to CCM3 areExpand

Terrestrial Gross Carbon Dioxide Uptake: Global Distribution and Covariation with Climate
Estimates of spatially distributed GPP and its covariation with climate can help improve coupled climate–carbon cycle process models. Expand
The Common Land Model
The Common Land Model (CLM) was developed for community use by a grassroots collaboration of scientists who have an interest in making a general land model available for public use and furtherExpand
Parameterization improvements and functional and structural advances in version 4 of the Community Land Model
[1] The Community Land Model is the land component of the Community Climate System Model. Here, we describe a broad set of model improvements and additions that have been provided through the CLMExpand
Regions of Strong Coupling Between Soil Moisture and Precipitation
A multimodel estimation of the regions on Earth where precipitation is affected by soil moisture anomalies during Northern Hemisphere summer indicates potential benefits of this estimation may include improved seasonal rainfall forecasts. Expand
Description of the NCAR Community Climate Model (CCM3). Technical note
This repor presents the details of the governing equations, physical parameterizations, and numerical algorithms defining the version of the NCAR Community Climate Model designated CCM3, which incorporates significant improvements to the physic package, new capabilities such as the incorporation of a slab ocean component, and a number of enhancements to the implementation.
