Terrestrial Systems Modeling

Terrestrial Systems Modeling

This group works with observationalists and experimentalists to discover new knowledge about Earth’s land and its connections to the atmosphere and oceans by developing and applying mechanistic numerical models at scales ranging from individual cells or soil pores up to fully coupled models of Earth’s climate system

Kinetics of Methylmercury Production Revisited

Laboratory measurements of the biologically mediated methylation of mercury (Hg) to the neurotoxin monomethylmercury (MMHg) often exhibit kinetics that are inconsistent with first-order kinetic...

Uncertainty in the response of terrestrial carbon sink to environmental drivers undermines carbon-climate feedback predictions

Terrestrial ecosystems play a vital role in regulating the accumulation of carbon (C) in the atmosphere. Understanding the factors controlling land C uptake is critical for reducing uncertainties in...

An intermediate-scale model for thermal hydrology in low-relief permafrost-affected landscapes

Integrated surface/subsurface models for simulating the thermal hydrology of permafrost-affected regions in a warming climate have recently become available, but computational demands of those new...
