A Generic Law-of-the-Minimum Flux Limiter for Simulating Substrate Limitation in Biogeochemical Models
Complex biogeochemical networks that include many biotic and abiotic processes can be limited by different substrates under different conditions during their temporal evolution.
Conceptual model of anaerobic labile soil organic carbon (SOC) degradation pathways in the active layer of polygonal tundra upon warming.
Permafrost thaw and climate warming accelerates frozen soil organic carbon (SOC) degradation and emission of greenhouse gases, but what specific degradation pathways for labile SOC occur prior to CH4 and CO2 production are not well understood.
The NGEE Arctic website, to be released later in April, will have a new look and feel moving from an unsupported Drupal 6 into Drupal 7.
The ORNL NGEE Arctic Data Management Team (DMT) is lending expertise and tools deployed for the NGEE Arctic data effort to the NGEE Tropics project. The DMT has deployed a multi-faceted system for NGEE Arctic comprised of the On-line Metadata Editor (OME)
These statistics reflect metadata submission and usage of the NGEE Arctic Search Tool since its implementation in the spring of 2014. Metadata records reflect a combination of data, information and documentation that form a collection. While all metadata
LBNL Researchers Evaluate Methane Production, Oxidation, and Emissions Across Polygon Tundra Gradients
In an upcoming paper in Global Change Biology, LBNL researchers Lydia Smith Vaughn, Mark Conrad, Markus Bill, and Margaret Torn present results of a two-year field methane study in the Barrow Environmental Observatory.
Model simulations by LANL scientists were used to assess the relative effect of environment on active layer thickness.
Current approaches to raising air temperatures are plagued by needing access to electrical power. Scientists on the NGEE Arctic problem are working to overcome that common constraint…
A rock physics investigation of unconsolidated saline permafrost: P-wave properties from laboratory ultrasonic measurements
Researchers at LBNL apply seismic methods to examine characteristics of saline permafrost from coastal plain, Barrow, AK.
NGEE Arctic thanks Larry Hinzman for his contributions to Phase 1 and welcomes Vladimir Romanovsky in his expanded role as Chief Scientist.
