[1] The simulation results from models participating in the Coupled Climate Carbon Cycle Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) highlight the role of positive carbonclimate feedback in accelerating growth of atmospheric CO2. The large range among models in the strength of this feedback indicates the uncertainty in our understanding of the response of the land and the oceans to continued climate warming and increasing CO2. Most of this uncertainty is associated with the response of terrestrial… CONTINUE READING
