Chuixiang Yi is a micrometeorologist and theoretical modeler studying how climate change affects the carbon cycle, and from that knowledge try to predict environmental changes in the future. Dr. Yi, along with 151 coauthors, won the World Meteorological Organizationâ€™s Norbert-Gerbier-MUMM International Award 2012 for best publicationfor the paper titled Climate control of terrestrial carbonexchange across biomes and continents (Yi et al., 2010, ERL). Their results show that temperature is the most important control on carbon flow in high latitudes, while water is the most important control for carbon movement in low latitudes. As a result of global warming effects during the 21st century, we predict that carbon flow from the atmosphere into ecosystems will be strengthened in high latitudes, while being weakened in low latitudes.
