[1] The strengths of future carbon dioxide (CO2) sinks are highly uncertain. A sound methodology to characterize current and predictive uncertainties in carbon cycle models is crucial for the design of efficient carbon management strategies. We demonstrate such a methodology, Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC), by performing a Bayesian calibration of a simple global-scale carbon cycle model with historical carbon cycle observations to (1) estimate probability density functions (PDFs) of key carbon… CONTINUE READING
