Joint Seminar: Modeling terrestrial carbon cycle during the Last Glacial Maximum

During the repeated glacial-interglacial transitions, there has been a consistent and partly abrupt increase of nearly 100 ppm in atmospheric CO2, indicating major redistributions among the carbon reservoirs of land, ocean and atmosphere. A comprehensive explanation of the carbon fluxes associated with the transitions is still missing, requiring a better understanding of the potential carbon stock in terrestrial biosphere during the glacial period. This talk presents a series of model developments, evaluations and applications of the ORCHIDEE-MICT land surface model, including vegetation dynamics in mid- to high-latitude regions, permafrost soil organic carbon dynamics, and interactions between large herbivores and vegetation, in order to improve our understanding of terrestrial carbon cycle for present-day and the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, about 21,000 years ago).
