Abstract
<p>"Interpreting plant-sampled Δ14CO2 to study regional anthropogenic CO2 signals in Europe"</p> <p>Author: Denica Bozhinova</p> <p>This thesis investigates the quantitative interpretation of plant-sampled ∆14CO2 as an indicator of fossil fuel CO2 recently added to the atmosphere. We present a methodology to calculate the ∆14CO2 that has accumulated in a plant over its growing period, based on a modeling framework consisting of a plant growth model (SUCROS) and an atmospheric transport model (WRF-Chem). We verify our framework against available atmospheric observations and use it to evaluate the ∆14CO2 budget of Europe, which is influenced by both fossil fuel CO...
