Net aboveground primary production along a peatland gradient in central Alberta in relation to environmental factors
Short-term effects of changing water table on N sub(2)O fluxes from peat monoliths from natural and drained boreal peatlands
Peatlands, carbon storage, greenhouse gases, and the Kyoto Protocol: Prospects and significance for Canada
A high spatial resolution storm surge model was developed for the YK Delta area to assess biological impacts of storm surges under current and future climates. Storm surges are expected to be more frequent and more severe in the YK Delta area due to climate change and sea level rise. The biological impacts in the YK Delta due to the changed storm surges could be extreme.The model was assessed with respect to measured water level data at the coast and, where available, spatial extent of inundation, for 6 storms from the period 1992 to 2011. In total, inundation projections from 9 historical storms (5 from the assessment + 4 others) were developed. For each storm, an spatial inundation index (time-integral of water...
Biogeochemical functioning of hydrologically modified peatlands and its effect in eutrophication of freshwaters
Pollen Analysis of Digger's Creek Bog, Kosciuszko National Park: Vegetation History and Tree-line Change
The Great Dismal Swamp (GDS) project is an application of USGS LandCarbon, at the US Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), and is designed to produce local-scale carbon estimates (including fluxes, ecosystem balance, and long-term sequestration rate) to include in an ecosystem service assessment in support of Department of Interior (DOI) land management activities. The project will improve the understanding of the effects of past drainage, logging, farming, and management on carbon sequestration and fire risk in peatlands. Broad Science Questions: How are ecosystem services (including carbon sequestration, wildlife viewing, water quality, and others) impacted by management...
