  • Explicit representation of subgrid heterogeneity in a GCM land surface scheme 

    Essery, R. L. H.; Best, M. J.; Betts, R. A.; Cox, Peter M.; Taylor, Christopher M. (American Meteorological Society, 2003)
    A land surface scheme that may be run with or without a tiled representation of subgrid heterogeneity and includes an implicit atmospheric coupling scheme is described. Simulated average surface air temperatures and diurnal ...
  • Impact of model developments on present and future simulations of permafrost in a global land-surface model 

    Chadburn, SE; Burke, EJ; Essery, R. L. H.; Boike, J; Langer, M; Heikenfeld, M; Cox, Peter M.; Friedlingstein, P (Copernicus Publications, 2015-08-07)
    © Author(s) 2015. There is a large amount of organic carbon stored in permafrost in the northern high latitudes, which may become vulnerable to microbial decomposition under future climate warming. In order to estimate ...
  • An improved representation of physical permafrost dynamics in the JULES land-surface model 

    Chadburn, S; Burke, E; Essery, R. L. H.; Boike, J; Langer, M; Heikenfeld, M; Cox, Peter M.; Friedlingstein, P (Copernicus Publications, 2015-05-21)
    © Author(s) 2015. It is important to correctly simulate permafrost in global climate models, since the stored carbon represents the source of a potentially important climate feedback. This carbon feedback depends on the ...
