Marcus Klaus
I am interested in the carbon and greenhouse gas cycling in the boreal landscape. I have worked a lot with lakes and streams, but have recently shifted my focus towards land-water interfaces and groundwater. My research addresses a range of challenges from mechanistic understanding of small-scale gas exchange processes up to statistical modelling and prediction of large-scale land use


I am a physical geographer with broad interest in boreal forest ecosystems and specific expertise in the fields of limnology, biogeochemistry, hydrology and hydrodynamics.

Postdoc wanted! I am currently looking for a candidate for a 2-year Postdoc stipend for research on mechanims of air-water gas exchange in inland waters. For more information, klick here


Current teaching involvement:

  • Environmental chemistry (Bachelor level)
  • Forest Ecosystem Ecology (Master level)
  • Forest history (Master level)
  • Examiner of Bachelor theses in Forest Sciences


Major research projects:

  • Microbubbles – hidden gateways for greenhouse gas emissions from inland waters? (Swedish Research Council VR, 2023-2026)
  • The role of groundwater in the carbon cycle: long-term sink or overlooked legacy? (Swedish Geological Survey SGU, 2022-2024)
  • Reducing forestry related greenhouse gas emissions from stream ecosystems by smarter riparian buffer zones (Skogssällskapet, 2019-2022)


Some examples of media outreach:

Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter on Carbon cycling in Groundwater

Swedish Radio Channel P1 on Listening to gas exchange in streams

Swedish newspaper Västerbottens Kuriren on Listening to gas exchange in streams
