330071725PhD fellowship in the carbon balance in sub-arctic ecosystems at the Dept. Geosciences & Natural Resource Management, University of CopenhagenRobot A 3-year PhD fellowship in carbon balance in sub-arctic ecosystems is available at the Forest, Nature Biomass section, Dept. Geosciences Natural Resource Management with an expected start 1 November 2019, or shortly thereafter. The fellowship is funded by the European Union s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 813114 Innovative Training Network FutureArctic . About FutureArctic The EU-funded Innovative Training Network FutureArctic aims to quantify how much carbon will escape from the Arctic in future climate. How do the multitude of ecosystem processes, driven by plant growth, microbial activities and soil characteristics, interact to determine soil carbon storage capacity? A group of fifteen PhD-students will study the Forhot ecosystem in Iceland, where a natural coincidence has provided us with the exceptional opportunity to look into the future. Given the strong urgency of tackling and managing the climate challenge and the particularly important role herein of (sub)Arctic ecosystems, a rapid assessment of the ecosystem and ambient processes in this natural laboratory is essential. FutureArctic will achieve this challenge by adopting the fast advances made in the field of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and (remote) sensor technology into environmental research at the ecosystem scale, into a new concept of an ecosystem-of-things . FutureArctic thus aims to channel an important evolution to automated machine-assisted fundamental environmental research. This is achieved through dedicated training of researchers with profiles at the inter-sectoral edge of computer science, artificial intelligence, environmental and agricultural science, sensor engineering and communication and social sciences. FutureArctic training ensures the development of unique enviro-technological job profiles, all with their own specialty, embedded in holistic knowledge on connected high-data throughput ecosystem research, ready for machine-assisted environmental ecosystem science and modelling. About your project ESR6 - The carbon balance in sub-arctic ecosystems The primary objective is to quantify the C balance and the effect of warming on ecosystem-level CO2 and H2O fluxes. You will install two fully automated gas exchange chambers developed at UCPH and DMR to perform automated measurements of ecosystem-level gas exchange. Complementary field campaigns will be carried out using the automated NEE systems owned by LBHI, to cover spatial variability and effects of different warming levels. The goal is a detailed analysis of carbon uptake (photosynthesis) and carbon release (ecosystem respiration) along the temperature gradient and potential changes from net carbon uptake to net carbon source as the temperature increases. Campaigns with high-frequency measurements will provide pioneer insights into potential effects of geological (geothermal CO2) efflux influencing the carbon balance.
