Insights into the dynamics of forest succession and non-methane hydrocarbon trace gas emissions
This paper focuses on the present concerns with air pollution and the global carbon balance. In order to understand the respective roles of climate dynamics and vegetation succession in determining NMHC emissions, this work couples EXE (the energy, water and momentum exchange and ecological dynamics model) with NMHC trace gas emission algorithms to assess possible changes in NMHC emissions from forests under stationary and changing climatic conditions. As illustrated by two examples, emissions may decrease or increase depending on the local climate and vegetation, and coupled models may provide useful insights into the direction of such changes.
