Kurzfassung

Carbon storage in soils is sensitive to changing climatic conditions, potentially increasing C fluxes from soils to the atmosphere. This study provides an assessment of recent climate variability (1951–2000) and potential future (2001–2055) climate change impacts on soil C storage for croplands in the German part of the Elbe River basin. Results indicate that recently (1991–2000) croplands are a net source of carbon (net annual flux of 10.8 g C m-2 year-1 to the atmosphere). The recent temperature trend for the years 1951–2000 (+0.8 K in summer and +1.4 K in winter mean temperature) alone have already caused a significant net flux of 1.8 g C m-2 year-1 to the atmosphere. Future climate change (2001–2055) derived from regionalised meteorological properties driven by the IPCC-SRES A1 scenario results in an increased net C flux of an additional 4 g C m-2 year-1 in comparison to the reference period (1951–2000). Uncertainties attached to C flux results are estimated with a standard error of 6%. Besides climate-induced alteration of net C fluxes, considerable impacts on groundwater recharge (−45.7%), river flow (−43.2%) and crop yield (−11% to −15% as a basin-wide average for different cereals) were obtained. Recent past and expected temperature changes within the Elbe basin predominantly contribute to the increase of net C fluxes to the atmosphere. However, decreased crop growth (crop yields) and decreased expected water availability counteract even higher net C losses as soil C turnover is reduced through less C input (less crop growth) and drier soil conditions (decrease in water availability). Based on this study, present-day and potential future development of net C fluxes, water components and crop yields were quantified. This allows integrated assessment of different ecosystem services (C storage, water availability and crop yield) under climate change in river basins.
