Impact of climate change on catchment biogeochemistry in plains and shield regions
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify impacts of climate change and permafrost thaw on pond methane emissions, and on water chemistry in streams that drain peatland-rich catchments. Impacts on methane emissions will be assessed. Specific objectives are: 1) to characterize the trends and variability in magnitude of methane emission from ponds along climate gradients within both the Taiga...


Effects of fire on peatland permafrost stability and carbon cycling
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The project team intend to study carbon cycling in peatland catchments, in order to determine whether the interactions between wildfire and permafrost thaw causes increased release of greenhouse gases from peatlands and aquatic ecosystems to the atmosphere, and thus cause amplified climate change. Given the overall objective of the project, the team intend to address five research questions: ...
