My current project research

Potential hot-spots for release of greenhouse gases occur at several spatial and temporal time scales. Physical and biogeochemical processes acting on such scales are not entirely understood, creating a gap in the calculations of greenhouse gas budget. This is especially true for boreal soils and lake systems.  My project focuses on the interactions between carbon pools and greenhouse gas release in Arctic catchment areas, using a biogeochemistry-hydrological model. The role of my researcher is to further develop the hydrological and biogeochemical model in order to better quantify relevant processes.

Biogeochemistry

How human activities affect natural processes that drive the major biogeochemical cycles that ultimately govern the composition of the environment.
