Land and Ocean Carbon Cycle Feedbacks from Two Generations of Coupled Carbon-Climate Models

Figure 19.5


This figure appears in chapter 19 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.

The large uncertainty in carbon cycle response to climate and rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is shown, particularly for the land carbon cycle. Uncertainty in the response of the ocean carbon cycle to climate and rising CO2 has decreased with model development (e.g., Coupled Climate–Carbon Cycle Model Intercomparison Project [C4MIP] and Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 [CMIP5]), but the same cannot be said for the land carbon cycle. Key: K, Kelvin; ppm, parts per million; Pg C, petagrams of carbon. [Figure source: Reprinted from Ciais et al., 2013, copyright IPCC, used with permission.]
