RIVEr emissions of greenhouse gases from warming landSCAPEs

Project description

Impact of greenhouse gas emissions from rivers on climate change

Scientists cannot yet quantify how river CO2 and CH4 emissions will influence future climate warming. The EU-funded RIV-ESCAPE project will therefore combine river CO2 and CH4 flux, river flow dynamics and carbon (C) supply at minutes to hours resolution over seasonal timescales. Researchers will focus on Arctic rivers experiencing pronounced warming and holding large stores of ancient C in soils. RIV-ESCAPE will also apply isotope geochemistry to river gases, waters and sediments to quantify the controls on the age and source of CO2 and CH4 in rivers around the world. The results will help determine the sensitivity of river CO2 and CH4 emissions to future warming.
