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,
Acceleration of global warming due to carbon-cycle feedbacks in a coupled climate model
Results from a fully coupled, three-dimensional carbon–climate model are presented, indicating that carbon-cycle feedbacks could significantly accelerate climate change over the twenty-first century.
Evaluation of climate models
Climate models have continued to be developed and improved since the AR4, and many models have been extended into Earth System models by including the representation of biogeochemical cycles
Climate-carbon cycle feedback analysis: Results from the C
Eleven coupled climate–carbon cycle models used a common protocol to study the coupling between climate change and the carbon cycle. The models were forced by historical emissions and the

This note describes the terrestrial carbon cycle component of the Hadley Centre's coupled climate-carbon cycle model (Cox et al (2000)). \TRIFFID (Top-down Representation of Interactive Foliage and
The impact of new land surface physics on the GCM simulation of climate and climate sensitivity
Abstract Recent improvements to the Hadley Centre climate model include the introduction of a new land surface scheme called “MOSES” (Met Office Surface Exchange Scheme). MOSES is built on the
Global response of terrestrial ecosystem structure and function to CO2 and climate change: results from six dynamic global vegetation models
The possible responses of ecosystem processes to rising atmospheric CO2 concentration and climate change are illustrated using six dynamic global vegetation models that explicitly represent the
The Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES), model description – Part 1: Energy and water fluxes
Abstract. This manuscript describes the energy and water components of a new community land surface model called the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES). This is developed from the Met Office
The Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES), model description – Part 2: Carbon fluxes and vegetation dynamics
Abstract. The Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) is a process-based model that simulates the fluxes of carbon, water, energy and momentum between the land surface and the atmosphere. Many
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.
