CSU Thurgoona:Notebook/Dissolved Iorganic Carbon in headwaters
|Customize your entry pages|
Riverine dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) represents a major component of the flux of carbon between the land and oceans and is also of significance in aquatic carbon cycling. Despite its central importance to carbon cycle studies on a range of timescales, no instrument is currently available that can make and log long-term in situ measurements of DIC. This project will develop such an instrument and use it to test the hypothesis that riverine DIC flux from steep, shaded headwater streams can serve an integrative measure of relative changes in net ecosystem production in the stream catchment.
