Exploring the Dynamics of High Latitude Carbon Balance


NOAA Office of Global Programs

Objective

To quantify carbon dioxide and methane emissions from thawing permafrost

Collaborators

Kevin Schaefer is the PI, and Tingjun Zhang and Lori Bruhwiler (NOAA) are Co-Investigators.

Project Summary

We are using the Simple Biosphere/Carnegie-Ames-Stanford Approach (SiBCASA) land surface model to make projections of permafrost degradation and emissions of CO2 and methane from thawing permafrost. We are studying the strength, timing, and dynamics of the permafrost carbon feedback.
