Reducing uncertainties in global carbon budget

Researchers report a Bayesian fusion model of land and ocean carbon sinks, land-use change emissions, and fossil fuel emissions from 1980 to 2014 that reduces the uncertainty of the land carbon sink by 41% and the ocean carbon sink by 46%, findings that provide increased confidence in the role of the growing land sink in regulating atmospheric carbon dioxide. - Read at
