A new study looks into how air movement in the atmospheric boundary layer affects ozone removal by deciduous forests, which are a significant ozone sink.
A pesar de su notable influencia en los ciclos globales del carbono y el agua, América Latina representa una proporción relativamente pequeña de sitios FLUXNET, lo que limita la representatividad de la red en la región.
Regional variations in the seasonal drawdown of atmospheric CO2 can be used as a benchmark for evaluating models and satellite-derived estimates of land carbon uptake.
Despite its notable influence on global carbon and water cycles, Latin America accounts for a relatively small share of FLUXNET sites, which limits the representativeness of the network in the region.
The seasonal amplitude of atmospheric CO2 is increasing, partly due to boreal forest responses to warming. Photosynthesis and expansion of boreal forests are shown here to be temperature-limited.
Annual growth rings in trees tell us more than climate history; they can also document the rise and fall of human industrial activities.
As leaf out has been advancing 4–5 days per decade, scientists say the effect of vegetation on climate remains poorly understood.
The protective value of a plot of wetlands varies widely based on the county it shields from storm-related property damage.
A first-of-its-kind study combining paleoecology and archeology indicates that the New England landscape was not actively managed with fire prior to European arrival.
