A stable isotope simulator that can be coupled to existing mass balance models
To facilitate the simulation of isotope dynamics in ecosystems, we developed software to model changes in the isotopic signatures of the stocks of an element using the output from any parent model that specifies the stocks ...
Effects of ozone on net primary production and carbon sequestration in the conterminous United States using a biogeochemistry model
The effects of air pollution on vegetation may provide an important control on the carbon cycle that has not yet been widely considered. Prolonged exposure to high levels of ozone, in particular, has been observed to ...
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 ...
Species compositional differences on different-aged glacial landscapes drive contrasting responses of tundra to nutrient addition
In the northern foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska, moist non-acidic tundra dominates more recently deglaciated upland landscapes, whereas moist acidic tundra dominates older upland landscapes. In previous studies, ...
Pattern and variation of C:N:P ratios in China’s soils : a synthesis of observational data
Inspired by previous studies that have indicated consistent or even well-constrained relationships among carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) in soils, we have endeavored to explore general soil C:N:P ratios in ...
Nitrogen dynamics in a small arctic watershed: retention and downhill movement of 15N
We examined short- and long-term nitrogen (N) dynamics and availability along an arctic hillslope in Alaska, USA, using stable isotope of nitrogen (15N), as a tracer. Tracer levels of 15NH4+ were sprayed once onto the ...

International Carbon Coordination : Roger Revelle’s legacy in the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission
(Oceanography Society, 2010-09)
Since its inception in 1960, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) has been responsible for organizing and coordinating the scientific investigation of ocean carbon. Roger Revelle (Scripps Institution of ...
Global economic effects of changes in crops, pasture, and forests due to changing climate, carbon dioxide, and ozone
Multiple environmental changes will have consequences for global vegetation. To the extent that crop yields and pasture and forest productivity are affected there can be important economic consequences. We examine the ...
Mummichog Fundulus heteroclitus responses to long-term, whole-ecosystem nutrient enrichment
The effects of eutrophication on coastal plants and sessile animals are becoming well known, but responses of mobile species are less well studied. Here, we link variation in abundance, biomass, body size, growth rate, and ...
