GHG Europe

Progress towards Objective 3

Identify the carbon pools and GHG processes most sensitive and vulnerable to changes in individual drivers and in driver combinations, and the associated risks of positive feedbacks with climate change in the 21st century.

 

For the purpose of sensitivity and vulnerability analyses, modelling protocols have been established and agreed upon among all project partners. The protocols have been implemented to derive driver fields and to set priorities for data collection in the 6 data rich regions.

Seven sectoral models have been evaluated against site level data for CO2, N2O and CH4 in cropland, grassland and forests.

The first attribution experiments of forest and agricultural management effects on GHG fluxes with sectoral and generic ecosystem models were performed.
