This research will focus on the carbon
cycle of permafrost ecosystems. The theme of this research
is the relation of water and carbon cycles (including CH4)
in permafrost ecosystems. The aim of the research is to improve
parameterisation of process-based models of CO2 and CH4 exchange,
and an assessment of effects of spatial heterogeneity and
model resolution. The quantity of water (frozen or unfrozen)
plays a key role in many processes and therefore it has to
be ensured that the water balance is modelled accurately.
The hydrologic output of the models will be validated against
field observations of runoff, soil moisture and evapotranspiration.
