Tropical Forest Response to a Drier Future: Turnover Times of Soil Organic Matter, Roots, Respired CO2, and CH4 across Moisture Gradients in Time and Space

This DOE Early Career Research Program project addresses the potential response of tropical forests to climate change. This project has an emphasis on below-ground carbon storage and cycling and uses radiocarbon to indicate how long carbon has resided in the soil. The project is also interested in the sources of carbon contributing to changes in the amount of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere.
