AFM-9: Incorporation of Boreal Forest Ecosystem Description into Climate Modeling Framework

P.I.(s): Robert Dickinson -- University of Arizona
Co-I(s): Jim Shuttleworth -- Univ. of Arizona; L. Graumlich; Gordan Bonan -- NCAR; Ann Henderson-Sellers -- Macquarie Univ.

Objectives: An integrative modeling investigation is being conducted that will relate the BOREAS study to land process parameterizations of the Biosphere Atmosphere Transfer Scheme (BATS) for application in global climate models. The PI and graduate students are carrying out modeling studies to establish the relative sensitivity of surface-atmospheric exchanges of energy, moisture and carbon to various parameters and processes for boreal forests, as defined through the PI and Core measurement programs and their analyses.
