  • Insights into mechanisms governing forest carbon response to nitrogen deposition: a model–data comparison using observed responses to nitrogen addition 

    Thomas, R.Q.; Bonan, G.B.; Goodale, C.L. (Copernicus Publications, 2013-06-17)
    In many forest ecosystems, nitrogen (N) deposition enhances plant uptake of carbon dioxide, thus reducing climate warming from fossil fuel emissions. Therefore, accurately modeling how forest carbon (C) sequestration ...
