Carbon export in boreal catchments depends on the landscape setting and differs for snowmelt and rainfall events.
Records and Risks of Legacy Phosphorus in Streams
A new study quantifies persistent phosphorus in a drainage basin in Sweden and points out risks and oversights to factor in to future stream management.
Organic Particles Affect Carbon Cycling in Boreal Waters
Dissolved organic carbon receives much of the focus in aquatic research, but a new study suggests that bulkier particulate matter may play a significant role in regulating carbon dioxide emissions.
The Upside to a “Bad” Ozone Precursor
In Sweden’s wet heathland, scientists see how a sensitive ecosystem adapts to rising global temperatures.
What’s the Average Methane Isotope Signature in Arctic Wetlands?
Aircraft measurements confirm that methane emissions from northern European wetlands exhibit a uniform regional carbon isotopic signature, despite considerable ground-level heterogeneity.
Modeling the Future of Dissolved Organic Carbon in Boreal Forests
Climate change and forest harvesting will increase the concentration and flow of dissolved organic carbon in boreal streams.
High Methane Emissions Detected During Subarctic Lake Melt
A spike detected in surface methane released from a seasonally ice-covered lake in northern Sweden coincides with the spring thaw and lake overturn.
How Much Carbon Dioxide Does Sunlight Release from Lakes?
A study of more than 1000 lakes in Sweden helps model sunlight's ability to drive greenhouse gas emissions.
Methane-Producing Microbes Important for Studying Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Scientists have long thought that methane-producing microbes contribute to climate change but are slowly learning just how big a role these microbes play.
