3. Project Description:
Carbon fluxes describe the rate of exchange of carbon between the earth and atmosphere. This projects’ key objective is to explore network patterns of carbon flux and climatic parameters across three different biomes – 1) forest, 2) grassland and 3) cropland. Networks comprise graphical representations of the relationships between variables. Network analysis provides the capacity to estimate complex patterns of relationships but has yet to be used to explore large‐scale patterns of ecosystem flux variables.
4. Expected Outcomes:
This project will advance our understanding of patterns and environmental controls of ecosystem carbon flux in varied biomes. Forests have functioned as carbon sinks over the past several decades- the largest carbon flux of any ecosystem on the planet. Grasslands and croplands are also known to contribute to terrestrial carbon fluxes. Predicted changes in temperature can have both direct and indirect effects on this exchange. Therefore, a comprehensive assessment of ecosystem carbon balance in biomes is a critical issue for the global change research community.
