Thrid year Annual Report (2004 - 2005):

During this year project has completed critical milestones and deliverables. The detailed annual report consists of project plan, deliverables and report on individual work packages. The project has completed WP 2 and WP3 successfully.  Methods to invert ecosystem model parameters against eddy covariance data have been successfully developed. The parameters of ecosystem models TEMS have been successfully inverted against a number of eddy covariance sites.  Historical 20th century simulation for Land carbon balances has been completed. Both Phenology and carbon fluxes due to rise of CO2, Climate variability and landu use changes are modelled for the period. The protocol and design of nowcasting carbon data assimilation system is developed. The fully operataional system will be developed in GEMS and Carbo-Europe IP projects. CAMELS brochure has releaset at COP 11 meeting at Montreal. For Technical Implementation Plan, please visit at following website link www.cordis.lu/fp5/tip.htm.


Second year Annual Report (2003 - 2004):

The project has completed successfully year. During this year project has completed critical milestones and deliverables. The detailed annual report consists of project plan, deliverables and report on individual work packages. The project has completed two work packages successfully. During this period all driving data needed for Terrestrial Ecosystem models (TEM) validation has been compiled. There has been another addition of 20 biome-specific datasets to cover a wide range of biomes, extending both northern and southern hemispheres. Forest data like forest extent, growth, age class distributions and uncertainties in forest inventories across Europe have been compiled. A comparison between forest inventories and historical landuse dataset available for 1990 have showed variation in the extent of forest/crop area.
All TEM  have been validated with the biome specific site ( Needle Leaf ) and the uncertainties in the model internal parameters have identified and models have been calibrated with these internal parameters. Met Office Surface Exchange (MOSES) model has been improved by incorporating the two stream light interception model replacing big leaf light mode.
Protocol for historical 20th century simulation for Land carbon balances has been prepared. All driving datasets for these simulations have been compiled. The preliminary investigations for requirements (design/inputs) of nowcasting carbon data assimilation system is being carried out.  A prototype of CCDAS is also presented. Finally, report on the dissemination of CAMELS results in COP10, Global Carbon Project and the other recongized forums is presented in 3.5 section of the annual report.

First Year Annual Report (2002 - 2003):

CAMELS project has started during November-2002. It has completed first year on 31-October-2003. The workpackage team leaders have  provided the progress of the work of CAMELS project. This has been consolidated and presented in the CAMELS annual report -2003.  This annual report contains sections of Management and Resource usage summary, Executive publishable information and  Work package reports section.
