Carbon Research with ARM Data

One of the challenges in carbon cycle research is the vast range of scales, from plant to global atmosphere, which must be bridged by measurements and models. A second major challenge is understanding the strong coupling among the fluxes of carbon, water and energy, and how these link to land use and climate. Spanning the broad range of scales and land uses requires integrating ecosystem processes over heterogeneous surfaces and coupling them with hydrological and meteorological processes. The ARM/LBNL Carbon project aims to study three important aspects of the carbon cycle: fluxes, concentrations (stocks), and processes that control fluxes and stocks.
