Tundra meets atmosphere - Understanding the carbon and energy exchange

In November's GeoWednesday in 2021, Norbert Pirk helt a talk in The Science Library, about: Tundra meets atmosphere - Understanding the carbon and energy exchange. See it here (35 min).

The GeoWednesday seminar was streamed, and you can see the recording here OR in full screen at YouTube.

Introduction to the film:

Tundra environments found at high latitudes and altitudes play a special role in the global carbon and water cycles. Due to the often cold and waterlogged soil conditions, some of these areas have been accumulating carbon for centuries or millennia, forming large carbon pools that could be released back to the atmosphere upon climate warming. This talk will discuss how we monitor such land-atmosphere interactions.

About the lecturer: Norbert Pirk is a researcher at the Department of Geosciences in the section of Geography and Hydrology. His research focuses on understanding surface gas and energy exchange in arctic and alpine environments.
