12 October, 2020 (Green, ng, regional feedbacks) Green, J., Konings, A., Alemohammad, S. et al. Regionally strong feedbacks between the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. Nature Geosci 10, 410–414 (2017). Overview Here the authors confirm land-atmosphere feedbacks using satellite observations and a statistical method. The feedback from the biosphere to the atmosphere explains 30% of variations in precipitation and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). They employed a multivariate conditional Granger Causality (MVGC) using vector autoregression models (VAR) to decompose two directions in the feedbacks (i.

Nature 560, 628–631 (2018). Overview This paper provides observational evidence that the inter-annual variation (IAV) of CO2 growth rate (CGR) is strongly coupled to changes in both terrestrial water storage (TWS) and temperature at the global scale. It uses GRACE product, satellite observations of TWS, and measurements of CGR from NOAA.

Overview The authors concluded that soil moisture has substantial effect on long-term net biosphere productivity (NBP, a.k.a. NEE?) using a global satellite product of SIF and TWS (GRACE) and multi-model ensemble from the GLACE-CMIP5 project. They explained that the SMC effect was attributable to non-linear response of NBP to SMC.

Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences, 125, e2019JG005554. Summary Samuels-Crow et al., in this paper, quantified environmental antecedent (past) memory of water (ET) and carbon (NEE) fluxes over two semi-arid sites where two different conifer species dominate each.

Understanding terrestrial water storage variations in northern latitudes across scales. Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, 22, 4061–4082. Why did I read this paper? This paper contains the description and use of a hydrological model that a group I will join deals with. What they did? The hydrological model is relatively economic, or parsimonious, given small number of internal water storages (soil moisture, snowpack, and land run off), input variables (air temperature, precipitation, and net radiation), and parameters (10 params.

Intro Kallestinova E. D. (2011). How to write your first research paper. The Yale journal of biology and medicine, 84(3), 181–190. Confused by now with encountering the start of a new research, I read this paper to seek for avenues. The author, Elena D. Kallestinova, provided some pragmatic rules with the relevant explanation. Rather than procastinating, it might be more helpful for my writing to dive directly into my data, models, and codes.
