Researchers use sediment cores to study the amount and origin of sediment organic carbon in one of the least studied regions of the planet: hadal trenches.
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.
Changes in the 14C ages of carbon and biomarkers deposited at the mouth of a river draining a permafrost watershed track responses of regional thaw depth to past warming and cooling.
Biogeochemical floats provide an improved picture of ocean mixing and oxygen movement in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Satellite observations show how tropical forest carbon fluxes respond to changes in water from climate variability.
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.
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.
How do greenhouse gases and water circulate from minerals deep below Earth’s surface into the atmosphere and oceans—and then back again? Our understanding continues to evolve.
