Boreal biosphere-climate interactions

Land-atmosphere exchanges of greenhouse gases, water and energy in the boreal landscape

The boreal biome is an important component of the global carbon (C) cycle and therefore a key element in national and international policy frameworks for climate change mitigation.

However, current estimates of its sink-source strength and its responses to management and climate change remain uncertain. Thus, we need to improve our understanding of biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of C and GHGs for which comprehensive empirical data are required across multiple spatio-temporal scales.

We get these data through a comprehensive network of flux- and environmental monitoring stations, read more under Infrastructure.
