Potential climate warming impacts of carbon rich soils in Siberia
The carbon rich soils of Siberia could potentially cause significant climate warming impacts. This study provides new knowledge on carbon fluxes (uptake/release) in two ecosystems located on thawing permafrost soils in a far northern region undergoing an extremely rapid rate of warming. Eddy-covariance-derived data of annual carbon, water, and energy fluxes in an ecotonal forest-tundra ecosystem and disturbed thermokarst ecosystem are good additions to a pool of scarce data concerning the circumpolar Arctic. They provide a better understanding of far-northern ecosystems’ response to climate warming.
