A Large and Persistent Carbon Sink in the World’s Forests
TLDR
The total forest sink estimate is equivalent in magnitude to the terrestrial sink deduced from fossil fuel emissions and land-use change sources minus ocean and atmospheric sinks, with tropical estimates having the largest uncertainties. Expand
Carbon and Other Biogeochemical Cycles
For base year 2010, anthropogenic activities created ~210 (190 to 230) TgN of reactive nitrogen Nr from N2. This human-caused creation of reactive nitrogen in 2010 is at least 2 times larger than theExpand
Contributions to accelerating atmospheric CO2 growth from economic activity, carbon intensity, and efficiency of natural sinks
TLDR
The growth rate of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), the largest human contributor to human-induced climate change, is increasing rapidly and three processes contribute to this rapid increase: emissions, global economic activity, carbon intensity of the global economy, and the increase in airborne fraction of CO2 emissions. Expand
Global carbon dioxide emissions from inland waters
Carbon dioxide (CO2) transfer from inland waters to the atmosphere, known as CO2 evasion, is a component of the global carbon cycle. Global estimates of CO2 evasion have been hampered, however, byExpand
Couplings between changes in the climate system and biogeochemistry
The Earth's climate is determined by a number of complex connected physical, chemical and biological processes occurring in the atmosphere, land and ocean. The radiative properties of the atmosphere,Expand
Reduction of forest soil respiration in response to nitrogen deposition
The use of fossil fuels and fertilizers has increased the amount of biologically reactive nitrogen in the atmosphere over the past century. As a consequence, forests in industrialized regions haveExpand
The impacts of climate change on water resources and agriculture in China
TLDR
It is found that notwithstanding the clear warming that has occurred in China in recent decades, current understanding does not allow a clear assessment of the impact of anthropogenic climate change on China’s water resources and agriculture and therefore China's ability to feed its people. Expand
Trends in the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide
Efforts to control climate change require the stabilization of atmospheric CO2 concentrations. This can only be achieved through a drastic reduction of global CO2 emissions. Yet fossil fuel emissionsExpand
Europe-wide reduction in primary productivity caused by the heat and drought in 2003
TLDR
An increase in future drought events could turn temperate ecosystems into carbon sources, contributing to positive carbon-climate feedbacks already anticipated in the tropics and at high latitudes. Expand
Terrestrial Gross Carbon Dioxide Uptake: Global Distribution and Covariation with Climate
TLDR
Estimates of spatially distributed GPP and its covariation with climate can help improve coupled climate–carbon cycle process models. Expand
