Geospatial Forum with Dr. Diego Riveros-Iregui (UNC Chapel Hill)

Jordan Hall 5103 2800 Faucette Drive, Raleigh

A rapidly growing body of work suggests mountain streams emit surprisingly large amounts of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Studies in these environments are scarce and estimates of CO2 fluxes from aquatic environments are poorly constrained. High-altitude tropical grasslands, known as “páramos,” are characterized by high solar radiation, high precipitation, and low temperature. They also…
