    About This Project

    Arctic ecosystems are experiencing environmental change that may significantly effect mechanisms controlling carbon cycling in these soil systems. Shifts in vegetation and an extended growing season in the Arctic may promote new inputs to permafrost soils in this region. This incubation experiment hopes to examine the potential effect of labile carbon inputs on the release of native soil carbon in permafrost environments.
