This is the first study measuring CCl4 fluxes from the Antarctic tundra. Antarctic tundra soil is a small natural sink of atmospheric CCl4. It is estimated Antarctic tundra degrades about 2.4 metric tons CCl4 yr−1. CCl4 degradation in Antarctic tundra is likely abiotic and dependent on O2.Results supports the viewpoint CCl4 soil sink is smaller than previously thought.
In this study, the first in situ static-chamber measurements were conducted at coastal Antarctica tundra for CHCl3 fluxes, which showed that CHCl3 was naturally emitted from the Antarctic tundra at 35 ± 27 nmol m−2 d−1, comparable to other reported important natural sources.
our findings point to the strong emission potential of a suite of VHOCs from saline soils and salt lakes and call for additional studies of emission rates and mechanisms of VHOCs from saline soils and salt lakes.
Sea level rise and more frequent storm surges derived from global climate change, in the long term, may increase emissions of chloroform from coastal degraded forested wetlands and of methyl halides if salt marshes expand, with potential impacts for stratospheric ozone depletion.
Here we present net ecosystem flux measurements of methyl halides from a brackish tidal marsh on the west coast of the United States between April 2016 and June 2017 using the relaxed eddy accumulation method.
Here we report net ecosystem fluxes of light alkenes and isoprene from a semiarid ponderosa pine forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA using the relaxed eddy accumulation (REA) technique during the summer of 2014. The light alkenes contribute significantly to the overall biogenic source of reactive hydrocarbons.
