We started a replicated (n=5 chambers) warming experiment in Barrow, AK. The experiment uses solar radiation to warm vegetation and will enable us to understand thermal acclimation of respiration and photosynthesis in Arctic vegetation.
LBNL Researchers Evaluate Methane Production, Oxidation, and Emissions Across Polygon Tundra Gradients
Using field measurements of methane flux and stable isotopes, NGEE Arctic researchers identify spatial patterns in methane emissions and underlying metabolic processes across polygon types and features
BNL Plant Physiologist Publishes Roadmap for Improving Representation of Photosynthesis in Earth System Models
Scientist on the NGEE Arctic project examines how photosynthesis is represented in seven terrestrial biosphere models and makes community-wide recommendations to improve estimates of carbon uptake by terrestrial vegetation
