Global bvoc emission inventories a focus on the southeastern us

Global BVOC Emission Inventories:

A focus on the Southeastern US

Colette L. Heald

Are biogenic emission models sufficient to describe BVOC and oVOC emissions in forested areas, suburban areas, urban areas?

SOAS Workshop

May 25, 2011


The southeast is the lushest region in the us

THE SOUTHEAST IS THE LUSHEST REGION IN THE US

Leaf Area Index (LAI)


Biogenic voc emissions megan v2

BIOGENIC VOC EMISSIONS: MEGAN v2

  • εi is the emission factor at standard conditions for vegetation type i

  • χi, fractional areal coverage

  • the emission activity factor

  •  is the canopy loss and production factor

E=f()

Baseline emission factors (for some species?) relatively well characterized in the SE…

(I defer to Alex and others…)

[Guenther et al., 2006]


Uncertainty about current land cover

UNCERTAINTY ABOUT CURRENT LAND COVER


How does uncertainty in land cover translate to uncertainty in emissions

HOW DOES UNCERTAINTY IN LAND COVER TRANSLATE TO UNCERTAINTY IN EMISSIONS?

CLM

Guenther

CLM-Guenther

% vegetation cover

Baseline Isoprene Emission Factor

Large uncertainties in BVOC emissions result.

More important than spatial resolution??


Bvoc emissions in the eastern us megan v2 in clm

BVOC EMISSIONS IN THE EASTERN US: MEGAN v2 in CLM

6.8 Tg/yr

0.6 Tg/yr

0.14 Tg/yr

3.2 Tg/yr

Fraction of US BVOC emitted in the SE: ~25% of isoprene, ~15% of MT, ~10% SQ, ~25% oVOC


What about bi directional flux of ovocs

WHAT ABOUT BI-DIRECTIONAL FLUX OF oVOCs?

Fluxes measured at the top of the canopy are NET

Risk that models are effectively double-counting deposition?

Larger issue of evaluating simulated deposition...

And possibly implications of oVOC deposition


Future anthropogenic land use change in the se

FUTURE ANTHROPOGENIC LAND USE CHANGE IN THE SE

Anthropogenic land use change is largely the invasion of croplands. In the W US this is at the expense of grasslands, but in the E US also at the expense of trees.

BVOC emissions will decrease in the SE.


What about plantation species in the southeast

WHAT ABOUT PLANTATION SPECIES IN THE SOUTHEAST?

Isoprene emissions from oil palm (basal EF: 7.8 mg/m2/h) are 4-8 times the fluxes at a Borneo rainforest.

Also saw higher estragole and lower monoterpenes.

Natural land use change also highly uncertain

NATURAL LAND USE CHANGE ALSO HIGHLY UNCERTAIN

LAI (2100-2000)

Same land model (CLM) driven by 8 different climate projections

[Alo and Wang, 2008]

Some key questions:

1. Increase/decrease in precip?

2. How efficient is carbon fertilization?
