Cook-Patton, Susan C.; et al. (2020): Mapping carbon accumulation potential from global natural forest regrowth

Cook-Patton, Susan C.; Leavitt, Sara M.; Gibbs, David; Harris, Nancy L.; Lister, Kristine; Anderson-Teixeira, Kristina J. et al. (2020): Mapping carbon accumulation potential from global natural forest regrowth. In Nature 585 (7826), pp. 545–550. DOI: 10.1038/s41586-020-2686-x.

"Regrowing natural forests is a prominent strategy for capturing additional carbon3, but accurate assessments of its potential are limited by uncertainty and variability in carbon accumulation rates2,3. To assess why and where rates differ, here we compile 13,112 georeferenced measurements of carbon accumulation."

Watson, Andrew J.; et al. (2020): Revised estimates of ocean-atmosphere CO2 flux are consistent with ocean carbon inventory

Watson, Andrew J.; Schuster, Ute; Shutler, Jamie D.; Holding, Thomas; Ashton, Ian G. C.; Landschützer, Peter et al. (2020): Revised estimates of ocean-atmosphere CO2 flux are consistent with ocean carbon inventory. In Nat Comms 11 (1), p. 4422. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-020-18203-3.

"We estimate uncertainties using multiple interpolation methods, finding convergent results for fluxes globally after 2000, or over the Northern Hemisphere throughout the period. Our corrections reconcile surface uptake with independent estimates of the increase in ocean CO2 inventory, and suggest most ocean models underestimate uptake."
