EAFES Symposium ES11 -- 21 March 9:00-12:00 Room E
East Asian terrestrial ecosystems - the richest in the world - are distributed continuously from tundra and boreal forests through cool-temperate and temperate to subtropical and tropical forests latitudinally, as well as from coastal ecosystems through semi-arid and arid grasslands to desert longitudinally, and affected by the monsoonal climate. This symposium will cope with climate change protocols by synthesizing measurement, theory and modeling in quantifying and understanding of carbon balance of East Asia terrestrial ecosystems, including 1) measurements of carbon and water balances in individual ecosystem, 2) scaling up site-specific results to regional and national values, and 3) modeling evaluation of dynamics and feedback of East Asian terrestrial ecosystems to global warming.
