    Coupled Carbon-Climate Interaction Experiment

  • Guiding Philosophy (Charney 1979):
    • Define what is known/unknown
    • Define the critical suite of sensitive processes/parameters
    • Define measurement strategy to improve understanding of coupling processes
    • Keep it simple:
      • Exclude dynamic vegetation and other changes in land cover
      • Exclude nitrogen and other nutrient cycles that interact with the terrestrial C cycle
      • Exclude Fe and other trace element cycles that interact with the oceanic C cycle
