Productivity and phenology in a process-driven carbon cycle model
The carbon cycle is a major source of uncertainty in predicting future climate, especially with regard to changes in the terrestrial biosphere. One obstacle in predicting the sources and sinks of the carbon cycle is accurately predicting phenological transitions of the terrestrial biosphere with a global process-driven model. We hypothesize that the terrestrial biosphere and its phenological transitions can be simulated using a set of universal biological strategies and a simple set of plant functional types in the Simple Biosphere (SiB4) model. In order to test our hypothesis, we compare the ...
