 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The GHG-Europe project aims to improve our understanding and capacity for predicting the European terrestrial carbon and greenhouse gas (GHG) budget by applying a systematic, comprehensive and integrative approach. GHG-Europe quantifies the annual to decadal variability of the carbon and GHG budgets of terrestrial ecosystems in EU27 plus Switzerland and in six data-rich European regions via data-model integration, diagnostic and predictive modelling. Models are calibrated by multi-site observations. Research includes CO2, CH4 and N2O in forests, croplands, grasslands, shrublands, peatlands and soils. Via an integrated approach, GHG Europe scales up consistently from local to regional and continental scale via scale dependent error propagation and systematic quantification of uncertainties, model validation at different scales and top-down verification by atmospheric inversion models. At regional and European scale lateral C transport by land use, trade and rivers are included. Variability in C and GHG budgets is attributed to natural (climate) and anthropogenic drivers (N deposition, land use, past and present management) by synthesis of past and emerging experiments, targeted observations in hot spots and hot moments and model sensitivity analyses. For this purpose, observations are extended to under-sampled regions and ecosystems with likely high importance for the European C budget: forests and land use change in Eastern Europe and Mediterranen shrublands. The future vulnerability of carbon pools and risks of positive feedbacks in the climate-carbon system are assessed by scenario analyses with biophysical models and by integrating feedbacks with socio-economic changes and EU climate and land use policies. GHG-Europe uses a bidirectional interaction with stakeholders to provide regular and timely scientific advice targeted to the emerging needs of the UNFCCC process and for implementing post-2012 climate commitments in Europe.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

A recent project has provided new data and methods to calculate improved future carbon and greenhouse gas (GHG) budgets for Europe.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

For the EU to mitigate the effects of climate change, policymakers need accurate estimates of carbon and GHG fluxes on the continent. A better understanding of how various parts of the European landscape release or retain GHGs would help this effort enormously.

The 'Greenhouse gas management in European land use systems' (http://www.ghg-europe.eu (GHG EUROPE)) project studied biogeochemical processes in ecosystems and how they respond to natural and human-induced climate change drivers. Project partners studied European forest, grassland, cropland, peatland and shrubland ecosystems.

Scientists measured the annual and decadal variability of the carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) budgets of terrestrial ecosystems in Europe. The project also helped to understand the terrestrial carbon cycle and how drivers such as nitrogen deposition, land use and economic forces affect GHGs.

Project members also examined the economic, societal and environmental impact of land-use and climate change policy on future CO2, N2O and CH4 fluxes in Europe.

Data was collected and examined, and computer models were created for hotspots such as land-use changes and managed peatlands. Scientists also studied fire response processes in Mediterranean shrubland systems, and the effects of management activities on carbon stocks and growth rates in European beech forests.

Forest and land-use models were used to create scenarios of land-use change by policy and market drivers. The models were used to run scenarios of future land-use change driven by increasing human demand for food, fibre and energy.

GHG EUROPE has enabled researchers to create accurate GHG budgets in Europe for the first time. Further, the project has shown that consistent cross-sector land-use policies are important for decreasing GHG emissions.

The project outcomes help scientists and decision makers to better predict the impact of natural and anthropogenic climate drivers on GHGs in Europe. This data will help researchers to manage the carbon cycle and GHG emissions in terrestrial systems and to undertake climate mitigation strategies.
