In this sensitivity study, we have applied the Terrestrial Ecosystem Model ((TEM) version 4.1) to examine the responses of terrestrial ecosystems to transient changes in atmospheric CO2 concentration and climate in the 21st century at the scales of the globe, biomes, latitudinal gradient, and economic regions. Three predictions of transient change in climate and atmospheric CO2 concentration in the 21st century from the Integrated Global System Model developed at Massachusetts Institute of… Expand

CO2 and CH4 exchanges between land ecosystems and the atmosphere in northern high latitudes over the 21st century
[1] Terrestrial ecosystems of the northern high latitudes (above 50°N) exchange large amounts of CO2 and CH4 with the atmosphere each year. Here we use a process-based model to estimate the budget ofExpand

Simulating Forest Responses to Transient Changes in Climate and Atmospheric CO 2 : A Case Study for Saskatchewan, Central Canada
A transient climate scenario for the simulated period 1900–2100, derived from the CCCma coupled GCM (CGCM1) with IPCC IS92a greenhouse forcing was used to drive the IBIS Dynamic Global VegetationExpand
The high‐latitude terrestrial carbon sink: a model analysis
TLDR
It was concluded that a high latitude carbon sink exists at present and, even assuming little effect of N deposition, no forest expansion and continued boreal forest fires, the sink is likely to persist at its current level for a century. Expand
Vulnerability of carbon storage in North American boreal forests to wildfires during the 21 st century
The boreal forest contains large reserves of carbon. Across this region, wildfires influence the temporal and spatial dynamics of carbon storage. In this study, we estimate fire emissions and changesExpand

Future Effects of Ozone on Carbon Sequestration and Climate Change Policy Using a Global Biogeochemical Model
Exposure of plants to ozone inhibits photosynthesis and therefore reduces vegetation production and carbon sequestration. The reduced carbon storage would then require further reductions in fossilExpand
