Given how difficult it is to study remote lakes like this, this was a major team effort that used a unique combination of many different approaches to cover as many aspects of lake carbon cycling as possible.
Washington, April 25 ( ANI ): Researchers have said that microscopic organism play a very important role in ocean carbon cycling.
Other topics include benthic exchange and biogeochemical cycling in permeable sediments, El Nino physics and predictability, turbulence in the upper-ocean mixed layer, sounds in the ocean at 1-100 Hz, resurrecting the ecological underpinnings of ocean plankton blooms, carbon cycling and storage in mangrove forests, the influence of climate change on marine infectious diseases and its implications for management and society, pelagic camouflage and visual countermeasures, and sea ice ecosystems.
y Prof Freeman was praised by the Society for his groundbreaking work on nutrient and carbon cycling in wetlands.
Where exactly trees put their carbon becomes important when researchers build simulations that track carbon cycling. "People talk about how plants shuttle half their carbon to the belowground root system, but it has kind of been neglected in carbon storage models," says study coauthor Karina Clemmensen, a fungal ecologist at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala.
Improved methods are needed in order to process current and future high-dimensional data sets that allow for the monitoring of physically and ecologically important variables that are key in understanding the health status of marine ecosystems and global carbon cycling. A methodology is presented that employs an adaptive learning network (ALN) to estimate coastal bathymetry and other water column optical properties from hyperspectral remotely sensed aircraft imagery.
