[ID: 298] The landscape-atmosphere-industry greenhouse gas budget of forest biomass production: Does sustainable forestry result in negative emissions?
PI: Matthias Peichl
The main goal of this project is to develop an integrated estimate of the landscape-atmosphere-industry greenhouse gas budget for a managed forest landscape (i.e. Krycklan) in boreal Sweden. This will be based on a landscape-scale GHG flux estimate using tall tower eddy-covariance and stream discharge measurements, >500 forest inventory plots, and a life cycle assessment of forest product emissions.

The focus is on the wetland restoration project at Trollberget. Monitoring of ground and stream water will start prior to the operations and last for the full project period. The restored wetlands will be compared with two non-restored wetland catchments in order to detect any effects on water quality. The spatial dimension of the project will be explored by additional sampling (synoptic surveys) of restored and non-restored wetlands over large geographical regions of Sweden. The results will be fundamental for future management and conservation strategies of boreal wetlands and for keeping good water quality of water resources in Sweden.

To investigate the effects of ditch cleaning on mobilization of aged C we will combine state-of-the-art hydrochemical measurements with novel isotopic tools. Measurements of quantity and age composition of different C species will be made in ground and stream water of the different catchments.
[ID: 174] Birch spruce replacement
PI: Emma Holmström
The purpose of the experiment is to have long term measurements of growth and stand development of the two species in monoculture vs mixture. The first treatments are initiated after regeneration on sites with planted Norway spruce and naturally regenerated birch where the two species are within the same average heights. First treatment is a pre-commercial thinning aiming for stand composition in four different levels : Every block is divided in four treatments with 100 % Norway spruce (NS), 100 % Birch, mixture 33 % NS and 66 % Birch, mixture 66 % NS and 33 % birch.
