Short summary
Terrestrial biospheric models (TBMs) are used to assess carbon--climate interactions. We present a new and complementary approach for evaluating the spatiotemporal patterns, rather than magnitudes, of biosphere--atmosphere carbon exchange predicted by TBMs, based on atmospheric observations. Experiments demonstrate that the performance of TBMs varies substantially across seasons and biomes, with best performance during the growing season and more limited skill during transition seasons.
