Arctic carbon: you win some, you lose some
Frans-Jan Parmentier, Associate professor at INES, will give a seminar with the aforementioned title.
The rapid warming of the Arctic – more than twice the global rate – has led to a cascade of climate impacts throughout the northern part of our planet. These include an earlier start of the growing season, the thawing of permafrost, and a shift from snow to rain. Combined, these changes have a profound influence on the arctic carbon cycle, affecting the uptake of carbon as well as its release to the atmosphere. In this talk, I will highlight some recent findings on the sinks and sources of carbon in the Arctic, and how these insights can be used to achieve more reliable projections of potentially large carbon-climate feedbacks.
