TE-19: Modeling Climate-Biosphere Interactions in the Boreal Forest

P.I.(s): Robert C. Harriss -- University of New Hampshire
Co-I(s): John Aber, Steven E. Frolking -- University of New Hampshire

Objectives: We propose a research program which integrates and advances two separate models we have recently developed for understanding carbon and nitrogen cycling in soil and vegetation. The primary product of this model integration will be a capability for assessing and understanding the sensitivity of boreal ecosystem carbon and nitrogen pools and fluxes to climate variability. The proposed modelling research program will be coordinated with the BOREAS field measurements program. Field measurement at BOREAS sites will be used to test and validate our model. Our model will provide conceptual framework for testing which components of the boreal ecosystem especially sensitive to climate change. The results of the combined field and studies will provide a sound rationale for the design and implementation of a measurement program in the boreal forest ecosystem using the Earth Observing System (EOS).
