Other relevant activities

C-LAMP  Carbon - Land Model intercomparison Project
CARBO-Extreme   - a European synthesis activity examining the response of the terrestrial carbon cycle to climate variability and extremes.
NitroEurope   - a project identifying the effect of reactive nitrogen on net greenhouse gas budgets in Europe. End date: 2011.
CarboEurope   - a project identifying the role of Europe in the global carbon cycle.
FLUXNET Dataset Information   - lists of data, core measurement variables, and other relevant information from FLUXNET.
ILAMB   - the International Land Model Benchmarking Project (model-data comparison project for global land models)
PEcAn (Predictive Ecosystem Analyzer)  Useful tool for simplifying ecosystem model parameterization and assessment. More technically, PEcAn is a workflow for doing Bayesian metaanalyses for trait parameterization in models. It queries a trait database, assigns prior probabilities to traits, runs a Bayesian hierarchical metaanalysis, derives joint posterior distributions for traits, then uses those traits to parameterize and run an ecosystem model (currently ED 2.2).
GEOCARBON  European project to develop an Operational Global Integrated Carbon Observation and Analysis System.
TERN - Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (Australia)  
TRY  A global plant trait database.
