Frontiers and challenges in soil respiration research: from measurements to model-data integration

  title={Frontiers and challenges in soil respiration research: from measurements to model-data integration},
  author={Rodrigo Vargas and Mariah S. Carbone and Markus Reichstein and Dennis D. Baldocchi},
Soil respiration, the flux of CO2 from the soil to the atmosphere represents a major flux in the global carbon cycle. Our ability to predict this flux remains limited because of multiple controlling mechanisms that interact over different temporal and spatial scales. However, new advances in measurement and analyses present an opportunity for the scientific community to improve the understanding of the mechanisms that regulate soil respiration. In this paper, we address several recent… CONTINUE READING
