As climate is rapidly warming, it is vital to gain a better understanding of how ecosystem processes will change as temperatures rise. Of particular importance are fresh waters and lakes in particular, as warming has the potential to increase greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting in positive feedbacks with climate change. Unfortunately accurately measuring emissions is difficult as both carbon dioxide and methane emissions vary a lot in space and time. This project will allow measurement of emissions at very high resolution at a globally unique climate change experiment at Aarhus University. This will allow us to more accurately predict future GHG emissions from shallow lakes.
