Site Description
• Landscape assessment of the environmental and societal consequences of enhanced forest production on carbon sequestration, biodiversity and water quality. • Integrated catchment research and monitoring that contribute to the development of new water management models and guidelines. • Investigations of long-term soil-tree interactions under the impact of different external drivers. • Long-term monitoring of the full carbon balance from an oligotrophic boreal mire, including carbon uptake, methane emissions, and runoff export carbon loss.
