Incorporating phosphorus cycling into global scale modeling efforts: A worthwhile tractable endeavor
October 1, 2015
Provide guidance for effectively including phosphorus cycling into Earth system models.
- We used empirical and modeling perspectives to synthesize the current understanding of phosphorus cycling processes, discussing existing challenges and opportunities.
- Model–data integration was demonstrated as the way forward and we provide key processes and parameters for modeling phosphorus.
This paper brings attention to the need for including phosphorus for accurate predictions of future climate, and provides a road map for how to move forward.
