Is the northern high-latitude land-based CO2 sink weakening?
(American Geophysical Union, 2011-08-30)
Studies indicate that, historically, terrestrial ecosystems of the northern high-latitude region may have been responsible for up to 60% of the global net land-based sink for atmospheric CO2. However, these regions have ...
Climate impacts of a large-scale biofuels expansion
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013-04-28)
A global biofuels program will potentially lead to intense pressures on land supply and cause widespread transformations in land use. These transformations can alter the Earth climate system by increasing greenhouse gas ...
Consequences of considering carbon–nitrogen interactions on the feedbacks between climate and the terrestrial carbon cycle
(American Meteorological Society, 2008-08-01)
The impact of carbon–nitrogen dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems on the interaction between the carbon cycle and climate is studied using an earth system model of intermediate complexity, the MIT Integrated Global Systems ...
Nitrogen attenuation of terrestrial carbon cycle response to global environmental factors
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-30)
Nitrogen cycle dynamics have the capacity to attenuate the magnitude of global terrestrial carbon sinks and sources driven by CO2 fertilization and changes in climate. In this study, two versions of the terrestrial carbon ...
A review of and perspectives on global change modeling for Northern Eurasia
(IOP Science, 2017-08-08)
Northern Eurasia is made up of a complex and diverse set of physical, ecological, climatic and human systems, which provide important ecosystem services including the storage of substantial stocks of carbon in its terrestrial ...
The impacts of recent permafrost thaw on land–atmosphere greenhouse gas exchange
(IOP Publishing, 2014-04-06)
Permafrost thaw and the subsequent mobilization of carbon (C) stored in previously frozen soil organic matter (SOM) have the potential to be a strong positive feedback to climate. As the northern permafrost region experiences ...

Corrigendum: Sokolov, A., and Coauthors, 2009: Probabilistic forecast for twenty-first-century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters. J. Climate, 22, 5175–5204.
Probabilistic forecast for twenty-first-century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-10-01)
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Integrated Global System Model is used to make probabilistic projections of climate change from 1861 to 2100. Since the model’s first projections were published in 2003, ...
Correction to “Importance of carbon-nitrogen interactions and ozone on ecosystem hydrology during the 21st century”
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-22)
CO2 and CH4 exchanges between land ecosystems and the atmosphere in northern high latitudes over the 21st century
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-09-15)
Terrestrial ecosystems of the northern high latitudes (above 50oN) exchange large amounts of CO2 and CH4 with the atmosphere each year. Here we use a process-based model to estimate the budget of CO2 and CH4 of the region ...
