Research Project: Stability and resilience of permafrost carbon

Supervisor: Dr. J. (Ko) van Huissteden (Vrije Universiteit)
Secondary Supervisors: Dr Christian Beer (Stockholm University), Prof Han Dolman (Vrije Universiteit)

Project Description

Improve wetland coupled hydrology-carbon cycle models to better account for the effects of changing drainage basin hydrology and permafrost degradation. Predicted annual variation in CH4 emissions will be compared with top-down estimates of high latitude wetland fluxes derived from satellite observations and inverse model simulations.
