The Physics And Ecology Of Mining Carbon Dioxide From The Atmosphere By Ecosystems
Baldocchi, D., Penuelas, J.

Reforesting and managing ecosystems have been proposed as ways to mitigate global warming and offset anthropogenic carbon emissions. The intent of our opinion piece is to provide a perspective on how well plants and ecosystems sequester carbon. The ability of individual plants and ecosystems to mine carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, …

Estimating Annual Carbon Dioxide Eddy Fluxes Using Open-Path Analysers For Cold Forest Sites
Amiro, B.

Annual net ecosystem production (NEP) was estimated at three boreal forest sites where open-path infrared gas analysers were used in eddy covariance systems. The analysers showed apparent ecosystem uptake of carbon dioxide during frozen conditions where small net respiration …

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, …

Comparison Of Carbon Dynamics And Water Use Efficiency Following Fire And Harvesting In Canadian Boreal Forests
Mkhabela, M., Amiro, B., Barr, A., Black, T., Hawthorne, I., Kidston, J., McCaughey, J., Orchansky, A., Nesic, Z., Sass, A., Shashkov, A., Zha, T.

Fire and harvesting are major forest renewal processes in the Canadian boreal forest. The eddy covariance method was used to compare ecosystem fluxes of carbon dioxide between harvested and burned boreal forest sites in Saskatchewan, Canada. The harvest chronosequence had …

Measuring Boreal Forest Evapotranspiration Using The Energy Balance Residual
Amiro, B.

The eddy covariance technique is the most common method of measuring forest evapotranspiration directly. Evapotranspiration can also be estimated by solving for the residual of the energy balance measurements of net radiation, sensible heat flux density and ground heat flux density. However, the lack of energy balance closure of …

Carbon, Energy And Water Fluxes At Mature And Disturbed Forest Sites, Saskatchewan, Canada
Amiro, B., Barr, A., Black, T., Iwashita, H., Kljun, N., Mccaughey, J., Morgenstern, K., Murayama, S., Nesic, Z., Orchansky, A.

Fire and harvesting are important disturbances in the boreal forest, driving net biome production. Measurements of net ecosystem production (NEP) over mature forest stands have been made from flux towers for about a decade at the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites (BERMS) in central Saskatchewan, Canada. Over the last …

The Effect Of Post-Fire Stand Age On The Boreal Forest Energy Balance
Amiro, B., Orchansky, A., Barr, A., Black, T., Chambers, S., Chapin III, F., Goulden, M., Litvak, M., Liu, H., McCaughey, J., McMillan, A., Randerson, J.

Fire in the boreal forest renews forest stands and changes the ecosystem properties. The successional stage of the vegetation determines the radiative budget, energy balance partitioning, evapotranspiration and carbon dioxide flux. Here, we synthesize energy balance measurements …

Post-Fire Carbon Dioxide Fluxes In The Western Canadian Boreal Forest: Evidence From Towers, Aircraft And Remote Sensing
Amiro, B. D., Ian MacPherson, J., Desjardins, R. L., Chen, J. M., Liu, J.

Recent CO2 flux measurements from towers and aircraft (net ecosystem exchange by eddy covariance) and remote sensing/modeling (net primary productivity—NPP) following fire show that the regenerating boreal forest in western Canada has a low initial flux that …

Paired-Tower Measurements Of Carbon And Energy Fluxes Following Disturbance In The Boreal Forest
Amiro, B. D.

Disturbances by fire and harvesting are thought to regulate the carbon balance of the Canadian boreal forest over scales of several decades. However, there are few direct measurements …

Seasonal Gas Exchange Of Black Spruce Using An Automatic Branch Bag System
Rayment, M. B., Jarvis, P. G.

Four large cuvettes were used to measure whole-branch CO2 and H2O vapour exchange at the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study, Southern Study Area, Old Black Spruce site. Measurements started before the spring thaw and continued until after the winter freeze-up. Daytime photosynthesis, nighttime respiration, transpiration …
