Wildfire‐Smoke Aerosols Lead To Increased Light Use Efficiency Among Agricultural And Restored Wetland Land Uses In California’S Central Valley
Hemes, K. S., Verfaillie, J., Baldocchi, D. D.

There are few observational studies measuring the ecosystem‐scale productivity effects of changes in incident diffuse photosynthetically active radiation (PARdiffuse), especially related to wildfire smoke. Climate change‐induced increases to the duration and intensity of fire conditions have made smoke a common occurrence across …

Assessing The Carbon And Climate Benefit Of Restoring Degraded Agricultural Peat Soils To Managed Wetlands
Hemes, K. S., Chamberlain, S. D., Eichelmann, E., Anthony, T., Valach, A., Kasak, K., Szutu, D., Verfaillie, J., Silver, W. L., Baldocchi, D. D.

Restoring degraded peat soils presents an attractive, but largely untested, climate change mitigation approach. Drained peat soils used for agriculture can be large greenhouse gas sources. By restoring subsided peat soils to managed, impounded wetlands, significant agricultural emissions are avoided, and soil carbon can be sequestered …

Improved Spatiotemporal Representativeness And Bias Reduction Of Satellite-Based Evapotranspiration Retrievals Via Use Of In Situ Meteorology And Constrained Canopy Surface Resistance
Sullivan, R. C., Cook, D. R., Ghate, V. P., Kotamarthi, V. R., Feng, Y.

Evapotranspiration (ET) is a key component of the atmospheric and terrestrial water and energy budgets. Satellite‐based vegetation index approaches have used remotely sensed vegetation and reanalysis meteorological properties with surface energy balance models to estimate global ET (MOD16 ET). We reconstructed satellite retrievals …

Recovering Evapotranspiration Trends From Biased CMIP5 Simulations And Sensitivity To Changing Climate Over North America
Sullivan, R. C., Kotamarthi, V. R., Feng, Y.

Future projections of evapotranspiration (ET) are of critical importance for agricultural and freshwater management and for predicting land–atmosphere feedbacks on the climate system. However, ET from phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) simulations exhibits substantial biases, bolstering little confidence …

The Effect Of Land Cover Type And Structure On Evapotranspiration From Agricultural And Wetland Sites In The Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, California
Eichelmann, E., Hemes, K. S., Knox, S. H., Oikawa, P. Y., Chamberlain, S. D., Sturtevant, C., Verfaillie, J., Baldocchi, D. D.

Water is a limited and valuable resource in California. A large proportion of the fresh water for southern California is supplied by the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers. With recent efforts to restore large areas of land in the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta region from farmland to managed wetlands, it is important to investigate …

A Unique Combination Of Aerodynamic And Surface Properties Contribute To Surface Cooling In Restored Wetlands Of The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California
Hemes, K. S., Eichelmann, E., Chamberlain, S., Knox, S. H., Oikawa, P. Y., Sturtevant, C., Verfaillie, J., Szutu, D., Baldocchi, D. D.

Land use change and management affect climate by altering both the biogeochemical and biophysical interactions between the land and atmosphere. Whereas climate policy often emphasizes the biogeochemical impact of land use change, biophysical impacts, including changes in reflectance, energy partitioning among sensible and latent …

A Biogeochemical Compromise: The High Methane Cost Of Sequestering Carbon In Restored Wetlands
Hemes, K. S., Chamberlain, S. D., Eichelmann, E., Knox, S. H., Baldocchi, D. D.

Peatland drainage is an important driver of global soil carbon loss and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Restoration of peatlands by re‐flooding reverses CO2 losses at the cost of increased methane (CH4) emissions, presenting a biogeochemical compromise. While restoring peatlands is a potentially effective method for sequestering …

Evaluation of a hierarchy of models reveals importance of substrate limitation for predicting carbon dioxide and methane exchange in restored wetlands
Oikawa, P. Y.; Jenerette, G. D.; Knox, S. H.; Sturtevant, C.; Verfaillie, J.; Dronova, I.; Poindexter, C. M. ; Eichelmann, E.; Baldocchi, D. D.

Wetlands and flooded peatlands can sequester large amounts of carbon (C) and have high greenhouse gas mitigation potential. There is growing interest in financing wetland restoration using C markets; however, this requires careful accounting of both CO2 and CH4 exchange at the ecosystem scale. Here we present a new model, the PEPRMT …

Evaluation Of Density Corrections To Methane Fluxes Measured By Open-Path Eddy Covariance Over Contrasting Landscapes
Chamberlain, S. D., Verfaillie, J., Eichelmann, E., Hemes, K. S., Baldocchi, D. D.

Corrections accounting for air density fluctuations due to heat and water vapour fluxes must be applied to the measurement of eddy-covariance fluxes when using open-path sensors. Experimental tests and ecosystem observations have demonstrated the important role density corrections play in accurately quantifying carbon dioxide ( CO …
