Longer Growing Seasons Lead To Less Carbon Sequestration By A Subalpine Forest
Hu, J., Moore, D. J., Burns, S. P., Monson, R. K.

As global temperatures increase, the potential for longer growing seasons to enhance the terrestrial carbon sink has been proposed as a mechanism to reduce the rate of further warming. At the Niwot Ridge AmeriFlux site, a subalpine forest in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, we used a 9‐year record (1999–2007) of continuous eddy …

A Multiscale And Multidisciplinary Investigation Of Ecosystem–Atmosphere CO2 Exchange Over The Rocky Mountains Of Colorado
Sun, J., Oncley, S. P., Burns, S. P., Stephens, B. B., Lenschow, D. H., Campos, T., Watt, A. S., Monson, R. K., Moore, D. J., Hu, J., Tschudi, M., Schimel, D. S., Aulenbach, S., Sacks, W. J., De Wekker, S. F., Lai, C., Lamb, B., Allwine, E., Coons, T., Ojima, D., Ellsworth, P. Z., Sternberg, L. S., Zhong, S., Clements, C., Anderson, D. E.

A significant fraction of Earth consists of mountainous terrain. However, the question of how to monitor the surface–atmosphere carbon exchange over complex terrain has not been fully explored. This article reports on studies by a team of investigators from U.S. universities and research institutes who carried out a multiscale …

Biometric And Eddy-Covariance Based Estimates Of Carbon Fluxes In An Age-Sequence Of Temperate Pine Forests
Peichl, M., Brodeur, J. J., Khomik, M., Arain, M. A.

We present four years (2005–2008) of biometric (B) and eddy-covariance (EC) measurements of carbon (C) fluxes to constrain estimates of gross primary production (GPP), net primary production (NPP), ecosystem respiration (RE) and net ecosystem production (NEP) in an age-sequence (6-, 19-, 34-, and 69-years-old in 2008) of pine forests …

Plant-Soil Interactions And Acclimation To Temperature Of Microbial-Mediated Soil Respiration May Affect Predictions Of Soil CO2 Efflux
Curiel Yuste, J., Ma, S., Baldocchi, D. D.

It is well known that microbial-mediated soil respiration, the major source of CO2 from terrestrial ecosystems, is sensitive to temperature. Here, we hypothesize that some mechanisms, such as acclimation of microbial respiration to temperature and/or regulation by plant fresh C inputs of the temperature sensitivity of …

Uncertainty Estimates For 1-H Averaged Turbulence Fluxes Of Carbon Dioxide, Latent Heat And Sensible Heat
Vickers, D., Göckede, M., Law, B.

A new observational approach is presented to approximate the uncertainty (scatter or error variance) in 1-h averaged turbulence fluxes …

Ecosystem Carbon Dioxide Fluxes After Disturbance In Forests Of North America
Amiro, B.D., Barr, A.G., Barr, J.G., Black, T.A., Bracho, R., Brown, M., Chen, J., Clark, K.L., Davis, K.J., Desai, A.R., Dore, S., Engel, V., Fuentes, J.D., Goldstein, A.H., Goulden, M.L., Kolb, T.E., Lavigne, M.B., Law, B.E., Margolis, H.A., Martin, T., McCaughey, J.H., Misson, L., Montes-Helu, M., Noormets, A., Randerson, J.T., Starr, G., Xiao, J.

Disturbances are important for renewal of North American forests. Here we summarize more than 180 site years of eddy covariance measurements of carbon dioxide flux made at forest chronosequences in North America. The disturbances included stand-replacing fire (Alaska, Arizona, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan) and harvest (British Columbia, …

Controls Over Ozone Deposition To A High Elevation Subalpine Forest
Turnipseed, A. A., Burns, S. P., Moore, D. J., Hu, J., Guenther, A. B., Monson, R. K.

Ecosystem level ozone (O3) fluxes during four different years were examined at a subalpine forest site in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The local mountain–valley wind system and the proximity of the Denver Metropolitan area leads to high summertime ozone episodes on many afternoons. The timing between these episodes and the ecosystem …
