Climate models go green

Rummukainen, Markku LU and Swietlicki, Erik LU orcid (2014) p.31-46
Abstract
The use of coal, oil and gas, and land use change, has caused emissions of carbon dioxide which equals to about 550 billion tons of carbon. Half of these have accumulated in the atmosphere, which warms our climate with profound effects on natural and human systems. The other half has been absorbed by the oceans and the biosphere. Climate change affects the strength of these ‘ carbon sinks’. Knowledge about their future capacity is important for informed action on climate stabilisation. MERGE’s research on a new generation of climate models aims for a greater understanding of vegetation, climate and climate change
