A new approach to detect hot spots of methane emissions with eddy covariance flux towers proves to be a worthy contender.
Extensive ground temperature measurements complicate our understanding of how vegetation cover, snow duration, and microtopography influence the pace of permafrost thaw in a changing climate.
Restoring formerly drained peat wetlands can mitigate climate-warming emissions but the reward takes patience.
Multiple state-of-the-art independent observing systems consistently disagree on magnitudes and patterns of ecosystem metabolism of carbon dioxide, but together can shed new insight.
Papers are invited for a new cross-journal special collection on insights in scaling land-atmosphere interactions from field experiments, data analyses, and modeling.
Annual growth rings in trees tell us more than climate history; they can also document the rise and fall of human industrial activities.
Trees grow as they age, but it’s not straightforward to tease out how that growth changes over a century of environmental change.
Mexico’s megadiverse biota challenge observation network design for efficient sampling, but novel methods can provide guidance and tests of representativeness.
Clear air policies have led to dramatic reductions in acid rain and improved ecosystem health, but it now appears that climate change could counteract those gains.
Rarely made detailed measurements of carbon dioxide and methane under lake ice reveal a story more complex than simple models of gas buildup, with surprising findings for climate change impacts.
