Oceanography: Anthropogenic carbon and ocean pH
It is found that oceanic absorption of CO2 from fossil fuels may result in larger pH changes over the next several centuries than any inferred from the geological record of the past 300 million years. Expand
Anthropogenic carbon and ocean pH
Ocean model predictions of chemistry changes from carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere and ocean
[1] We present ocean chemistry calculations based on ocean general circulation model simulations of atmospheric CO2 emission, stabilization of atmospheric CO2 content, and stabilization ofExpand

It is found that global-scale deforestation has a net cooling influence on Earth's climate, because the warming carbon-cycle effects of deforestation are overwhelmed by the net cooling associated with changes in albedo and evapotranspiration. Expand
Climate effects of global land cover change
There are two competing effects of global land cover change on climate: an albedo effect which leads to heating when changing from grass/croplands to forest, and an evapotranspiration effect whichExpand
Biogeophysical effects of CO2 fertilization on global climate
CO2 fertilization affects plant growth, which modifies surface physical properties, altering the surface albedo, and fluxes of sensible and latent heat.We investigate how such CO2-fertilizationExpand
Increase of carbon cycle feedback with climate sensitivity: results from a coupled climate and carbon cycle model
Coupled climate and carbon cycle modelling studies have shown that the feedback between global warming and the carbon cycle, in particular the terrestrial carbon cycle, could accelerate climateExpand
Quantifying the effects of CO2‐fertilized vegetation on future global climate and carbon dynamics
Climate and the global carbon cycle are a tightly coupled system where changes in climate affect exchange of atmospheric CO{sup 2} with the land biosphere and the ocean, and vice-versa. InExpand
Multicentury Changes to the Global Climate and Carbon Cycle: Results from a Coupled Climate and Carbon Cycle Model
In this paper, we use a coupled climate and carbon cycle model to investigate the global climate and carbon cycle changes out to year 2300 that would occur if CO2 emissions from all the currentlyExpand
