The forest landscapes climate effects

Greenhouse gas exchange between the atmosphere and the biosphere

Climbing the ICOS mast at Svartberget

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.
