A synthesis study of the terrestrial ecosystem carbon cycle at various temporal and spatial scales

This research includes analyzing the impacts of wildfires on the global terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle, assessing the patterns of biome carbon fluxes in response to droughts at different time scales, and estimating carbon fluxes with Terrestrial Ecosystem Model. This includes modeling the lateral dissolved organic carbon (DOC) flux into an earth system model. The lateral […]
