[ID: 218] Towards climate-responsible forestry: Assessing the greenhouse gas balances of drained and restored peatland forests in boreal Sweden

PI: Järvi Järveoja

The main goal of this project is to estimate and compare the GHG balances (including CO2 and CH4 exchanges) of drained and restored peatland forests in boreal Sweden. The specific project objectives are to: (1) obtain direct measurements of the full annual ecosystem-scale GHG balance of a drained nutrient-poor peatland forest, (2) determine the impact of restoration activities (i.e. rewetting) on the GHG balance of drained peatland forests, (3) identify the factors that govern the spatio-temporal dynamics of CO2 and CH4 exchanges in drained and restored peatland forests.

[ID: 217] How does rewetting affect the greenhouse gas balance of drained peatland forests in boreal Sweden?

PI: Järvi Järveoja

The overall aim of this project is to investigate how rewetting affects the GHG balance of drained peatland forests in boreal Sweden. This will be achieved by eddy covariance measurements of the ecosystem-scale CO2 and CH4 exchanges in work package 1 (WP1), combined with estimates of spatial variability from plot-scale GHG flux measurements across replicated sites in WP2. In WP3, the separate responses of the individual net CO2 exchange component fluxes will be determined.

[ID: 50] Greenhouse Gas Dynamics in Stortjärn

PI: Blaize Denfeld

From June 1 -Nov 1 2016 carbon dioxide and methane concentration and emission was measured on the lake every two weeks.
