Masayuki Kondo State of the science in reconciling top-down and bottom-up approaches for terrestrial CO2 budget
2019 Their set of atmospheric inversions and bio-sphere models, showed a high level of agreement for global and hemispheric CO2 budgets in the 2000s as well as for the regions of North America and South-east Asia. Differences in budget estimates are substantial for East Asia and South America. There is uncertainty in several regions as to whether these represent a carbon sink or source. Given these findings, caution should be taken when interpreting regional CO2 budgets.Those uncertainties continue to limit our ability to project the mitigation potential by the terrestrial biosphere.
Andreas Krause Legacy Effects from Historical Environmental Changes Dominate Future Terrestrial Carbon Uptake
2020 They use LPJ‐GUESS to quantify legacy effects for the 21st century. LUH2 (historic) and bias-corrected IPSL‐CM5A‐LR climate mode (future) are employed to provide land use forcing. The combined legacy effects of historical (1850–2015) environmental changes result in a land carbon uptake of +126 Gt C over the future (2015–2099) period. This by far exceeds the impacts of future environmental changes (range −53 Gt C to +16 Gt C for three scenarios) and is comparable in magnitude to historical carbon losses (−154 Gt C). The response of the biosphere to historical environmental changes dominates future terrestrial carbon cycling at least until mid-century.

Philip Vergragt et al Comparison of forest above-ground biomass from dynamic global vegetation models with spatially explicit remotely sensed observation-based estimates
2011 This paper investigates if and how carbon capture and storage (CCS) could help to avoid reinforcing fossil fuel lock-in. The outcome is that a large-scale BECCS development could be feasible under certain conditions, thus largely avoiding the risk of reinforced fossil fuel lock-in. Keywords: Carbon capture and storage, Biomass, Fossil fuel
