Study: Warming could slow upslope migration of trees

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists expect trees will advance upslope as global temperatures increase, shifting the tree line -- the mountain zone where trees become smaller and eventually stop growing -- to higher elevations. Show More Summary

Scientists measure pulse of CO2 emissions during spring thaw in the Arctic

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory documented a spring pulse in northern Alaska in 2014 that included CO2 emissions equivalent to 46 percent of the net CO2 that is absorbed in the summer months and methane emissions that added 6 percent to summer fluxes.
