Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU), Great Lakes Northern Forests: The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research in Alaskan carbon dioxide and methane stock and flux rates within aquatic ecosystems. This funding will support a graduate student and other resources and materials needed to verify biogeochemistry models, simulate land and aquatic ecosystem changes, and develop research methods, and conduct regional simulations of greenhouse gas emissions. Research Objectives: 1) In the context of the onset of dynamic changes in land and freshwater aquatic ecosystems areas, structures, and functions, how the CO2 and CH4 budgets of Alaskan freshwater ecosystems could change and what may be the primary drivers of the changes? 2) How would the potential change in CO2 and CH4 budgets relate to surface hydrology such as increased wetness and types of the wetlands and water bodies (such as thermokarst lakes).
