Carbon Flux and Greenhouse Gasses of Restored and Degraded Greater Everglades Wetlands: Flux Tower Measurements of Water, Energy and Carbon Cycling in the Big Cypress National Preserve
Entry ID: SOFIA_CarbonFlux

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Greenhouse gas emissions, specifically carbon dioxide (CO2), are commonly linked with increasing global temperatures and rising sea-level. Of particular concern are rates of sea-level rise and carbon cycling including CO2 emissions or "footprints" of urban areas and the capacity of plant communities to absorb and release CO2. Defining and predicting ecosystem response to regional (e.g., freshwater ... View entire text

Purpose: The project objectives are to: (1) Quantify key variables in water energy and carbon cycles, such as latent heat flux (the energy equivalent of evapotranspiration), sensible heat flux, incoming solar radiation, net radiation, albedos, Bowen ratios, net ecosystem production (NEP), gross ecosystem production (GEP), and ecosystem respiration. (2) Understand variability and linkages within water energy and carbon-cycles imposed by both (a) natural processes and (b) secular regional and global stresses, such as changes in hydrology and sea-level rise. (3) Provide published water energy and carbon cycling data on the South Florida Information Access website (SOFIA) along with meta-data
