Carbon storage in mountain rivers

Published research emphasizes rapid downstream export of terrestrial carbon from headwaters, but few studies have investigated the volume of carbon storage along  stream-riparian corridors. More Information:Document Type: Briefing Papers

Carbon pools along headwater streams with differing valley geometry in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado (Abstract)

Publications Posted on: October 01, 2012
Headwaters are known to be important in the global carbon cycle, yet few studies have investigated carbon (C) pools along stream-riparian corridors. To better understand the spatial distribution of C storage in headwater fluvial networks, we estimated above- and below-ground C pools in 100-m-long reaches in six different valley types in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
