Arctic System Science

FIgure d
Arctic ecosystems are witnessing large changes in climate.  They also store a large amount of carbon and nutrients.  In collaboration with other laboratories the Raymond laboratory is studying the controls on the lateral movement of carbon to the Arctic Ocean.  Particular attention is currently given to monitoring the largest Arctic Rivers.  FIGURE D.
