CO 2 exchange between air and water in an Arctic Alaskan and midlatitude Swiss lake : Importance of convective mixing

  author={Werner Eugster and George W Kling and Tobias Jonas and Joseph P. McFadden and Alfred W{\"u}est and Sally MacIntyre and F. Stuart Chapin},
[1] CO2 exchange between lake water and the atmosphere was investigated at Toolik Lake (Alaska) and Soppensee (Switzerland) employing the eddy covariance (EC) method. The results obtained from three field campaigns at the two sites indicate the importance of convection in the lake in driving gas flux across the water-air interface. Measurements were performed during short (1–3 day) periods with observed diurnal changes between stratified and convective conditions in the lakes. Over Toolik Lake… CONTINUE READING
