Understanding the magnitude of and reasons for uncertainty in carbon cycle projections is a key research challenge to determine the future state of our ecosystems. I will present examples of both natural variability and model uncertainty in future carbon cycle projections from Earth system models.

Dr. Danica Lombardozzi’s research investigates carbon, water, and energy fluxes between Earth’s surface and the atmosphere, focusing primarily on plant responses to air pollution and climate. Her work combines field techniques and data syntheses with global-scale modeling to understand the mechanisms governing these processes at different spatial and temporal scales. Dr. Lombardozzi completed her Ph.D. at Cornell University and is currently a postdoctoral scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
