Projected Cumulative and Net Land Carbon Sink for North America Based on Four Future Scenarios

Figure 19.3


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

(a) Historic and projected cumulative North American land carbon sinks are shown in petagrams of carbon (Pg C) from 1980 to 2099 for the ensemble median under each Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP). (b) The decadal average net land carbon sink is given based on historic projections (1990 to 1999) and on two snapshots in time for each RCP: 2050 to 2059 (lighter bars on left) and 2090 to 2099 (darker bars on right). Bars show ensemble median; gray circles represent individual model projections. The number of models varies across RCP based on availability. RCP2.6 models were CanESM2, HadGEM2–ES, MIROC-ESM, MPI–ESM–LR, and NorESM1–ME. RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 models were CanESM2, GFDL-ESM2G, GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2– ES, IPSL–CM5A-LR, MIROC-ESM, MPI–ESM–LR, NorESM1–ME, and INMCM4. RCP6.0 models were HadGEM2–ES, MIROC-ESM, and NorESM1–ME. All models used are consistent with those from Ch. 6 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (Ciais et al., 2013).
