Noces will set constraints on interannual -to-decadal variability of air-sea CO2fluxes, particularly over the northern hemisphere. An understanding of this variability, associated uncertainties, and the mechanisms which drive it will be used to
i) evaluate the ocean component of coupled carbon-climate models which predict future atmospheric CO2 and
ii) improve the skill of inverse atmospheric models to separate contributions of European, Asian, and North American terrestrial carbon sinks.
