Carbon cycle group studies the interactions and feedbacks between atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere mainly by modelling biogeochemical cycles and processes utilizing data-assimilation and numerical methods.
We are especially interested in greenhouse gas fluxes and concentrations, and carbon and nitrogen pools in vegetation and soil. Currently, our projects cover verification of carbon sequestration in agricultural fields, in managed and restored peatlands, forests, and in urban nature. Our scale varies from a single plot, to local, regional, and global scale but currently, we have a special focus on northern regions. We utilize land-surface models (such as JSBACH and LandscapeDNDC) and other process-based ecosystem models.
