The aims of the modelling case study described in this chapter were to: Estimate the ozone induced reduction of C storage in living biomass of forests under present (year 2000) and future (2040) climate/meteorology and emission conditions. Assess the influence of climate and species-specific flux and flux-response parameterisations on ozone-induced reduction of C storage in living biomass estimates for present meteorological conditions (year 2000). Assess the influence of soil water stress on ozone-induced reduction of C storage in living biomass by activating and deactivating the DO3SE soil water module for the year 2000. Compare the spatial distribution of AOT40 and PODY estimates of ozone-induced reduction of C storage in living biomass of forests.
