Abstract. Climate change, rising CO2 concentration, and land use and land cover change (LULCC) are primary driving forces for terrestrial gross primary productivity (GPP), but their impacts on the temporal changes in GPP are confounded. In this study, the effects of the three main factors on the interannual variation (IAV) and seasonal cycle amplitude (SCA) of GPP in China were investigated using 12 terrestrial biosphere models from the Multi-scale Synthesis and Terrestrial Model…

Plant Hydraulic Stress Strategy Improves Model Predictions of the Response of Gross Primary Productivity to Drought Across China
The response of the terrestrial carbon cycle to droughts, which have recently increased in incidence and severity, is a hot topic in research, but the role played by vegetation water use strategies
Distinct magnitude asymmetries of daily extreme anomalies in gross primary productivity between forests and non-forests
The magnitude asymmetry between positive and negative extreme anomalies in gross primary productivity (GPP) and the underlying mechanism have been investigated based on daily records from the


Global and regional effects of land-use change on climate in 21st century simulations with interactive carbon cycle
Abstract. Biogeophysical (BGP) and biogeochemical (BGC) effects of land-use and land cover change (LULCC) are separated at the global and regional scales in new interactive CO2 simulations for the
A model based investigation of the relative importance of CO2-fertilization, climate warming, nitrogen deposition and land use change on the global terrestrial carbon uptake in the historical period
In this paper, using the fully coupled NCAR Community Earth System Model (CESM1.0.4), we investigate the relative importance of CO2-fertilization, climate warming, anthropogenic nitrogen deposition,
Regional contribution to variability and trends of global gross primary productivity
Terrestrial gross primary productivity (GPP) is the largest component of the global carbon cycle and a key process for understanding land ecosystems dynamics. In this study, we used GPP estimates
CO2 emissions from land‐use change affected more by nitrogen cycle, than by the choice of land‐cover data
The results indicate that exclusion of N dynamics leads to an underestimation of LULUC emissions by around 70% in the non tropics, 10% in and globally in the 1990s, and the importance of accounting for different processes, in particular the N cycle is indicated.
Spatiotemporal pattern of gross primary productivity and its covariation with climate in China over the last thirty years
A machine learning algorithm was applied developing a new GPP dataset for China with 0.1° spatial resolution and monthly temporal frequency based on eddy flux measurements from 40 sites in China and surrounding countries, most of which have not been explored in previous global GPP datasets.
China's Terrestrial Carbon Balance: Contributions from Multiple Global Change Factors
The magnitude, spatial, and temporal patterns of the terrestrial carbon sink and the underlying mechanisms remain uncertain and need to be investigated. China is important in determining the global
Evaluation of terrestrial carbon cycle models for their response to climate variability and to CO2 trends
Carbon-nitrogen interactions significantly influence the simulated response of carbon cycle to temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentration, suggesting that nutrients limitations should be included in the next generation of terrestrial biosphere models.
Decadal trends in the seasonal-cycle amplitude of terrestrial CO2 exchange resulting from the ensemble of terrestrial biosphere models
The seasonal-cycle amplitude (SCA) of the atmosphere–ecosystem carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange rate is a useful metric of the responsiveness of the terrestrial biosphere to environmental variations. It
