Climate and Carbon Exchange

Printer-friendly version

How carbon moves into and out of the forest, and how carbon cycles within the forest, is fundamental to understanding the forest's metabolism. Weather and climate affect the forest's metabolism, and in turn, how much carbon the forest absorbs from the atmosphere may mitigate climate change. Long-term eddy-covariance measurements provide continuous estimates of atmosphere-biosphere exchange of carbon, water, energy, ozone, and nitrogen compounds.
