Integrating Landscape Carbon Cycling: Research Needs for Resolving Organic Carbon Budgets of Lakes

  title={Integrating Landscape Carbon Cycling: Research Needs for Resolving Organic Carbon Budgets of Lakes},
  author={Paul C. Hanson and Michael L Pace and Stephen R. Carpenter and Jonathan J. Cole and Emily H. Stanley},
Based on empirical and synthetic research, lakes make, store, and mineralize organic carbon (OC) at rates that are significant and relevant to regional and global carbon budgets. Although some global-scale studies have examined specific processes such as carbon burial and CO2 exchange with the atmosphere, most studies of lake carbon cycling are from single systems, focus only on a specific habitat, and do not account for all of the major terms in OC budgets. Hence, most lake OC budgets are… CONTINUE READING
