Climate science near Denali National Park, Alaska

Study lead by Dr Ted Schuur of University of Florida to understand the mechanisms for respiration, uptake and release of CO2, Oxygen, water and nutrients in tundra near Mt McKinley/Denali National Park Alaska. Vegetation, temperature, season, elevation, snow cover affect rates of exchange of gases and nutrients. Nitrogen is a strong limiter of plant growth. Here the study is called Carbon in Permafrost Experimental Heating Research (CIPEHR), and they artificially heat tundra in plastic chambers
