Notes from the Field

ABoVE: Burned boreal forests — Come along to measure carbon

June 20th, 2016 by Elizabeth Wiggins

As part of our field work to measure carbon emissions in burned areas, we often have to hike through an obstacle course of fallen trees to reach our research sites. I took some video with a GoPro to give a sense of what this is like, as well as how we extract soil to take measurements and how we find the perfect sites.
