[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: 135] Understory carbon and water budgets in boreal forests measured from the below-canopy eddy covariance towers.
Boreal forest floor plays an significant role in the ecosystem-scale carbon and water dynamics in boreal forests. However, accurate quantification of understory's contribution is quite challenging due to e.g. non-ideal conditions for the below-canopy eddy covariance measurements. In my project, I will use the direct below-canopy eddy covariance towers as well as manual chamber measurements to assess the carbon and water budgets of forest floors in two contrasting boreal forests, Svartberget and Rosinedal, respectively, to provide a better understanding of the mechanisms in carbon and water cycles in boreal forest ecosystems.
