SPRUCE Data-constrained Projections of Methane Fluxes in a Northern Minnesota Peatland in Response to Elevated CO2 and Warming: Modeling Archive
Study developed a data-informed process-based model using methane chamber measurement data from the SPRUCE project experiment in a northern peatland in northern Minnesota.
Study used existing manual CH4 flux measurements collected from the ambient environment from 2011-2014 and developed a data-informed process-based methane module. The module was incorporated into the Terrestrial ECOsystem (TECO) model before its parameters were constrained with multiple years of methane flux data for forecasting CH4 emission under five warming and two elevated CO2 experimental treatments at SPRUCE.
Included in this model archive are the (1) source code of the TECO model used in the study (2) the posterior distribution of parameters values, and (3) model simulated results of methane emission for different pathways under different environmental conditions.
SPRUCE Geochemical Changes in Porewater from Northern Peatlands at Multiple Depths in Field Samples and over Time in Peat Incubations
This data set reports the results of the analysis of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in porewater samples collected from multiple depths in northern peatlands and during laboratory peat incubations to characterize the gain or loss of specific chemical moieties (e.g. CH2, H2, CH2O, etc.) that may be attributed to microbial degradation. During incubations, CO2 and CH4 concentrations and stable isotopes were determined by isotope ratio mass spectrometry.
SPRUCE S1 Bog Sphagnum CO2 Flux Measurements and Partitioning into Re and GPP
This data set provides (1) the results of in-situ Sphagnum-peat hourly net ecosystem exchange (NEE) measured using a LICOR 8100 gas exchange system and (2) the component fluxes -- gross primary production (GPP) and ecosystem respiration (Re), derived using empirical regressions.
NEE measurements were made from 6 June to 6 November 2014 and 20 March to 10 May 2015. Three 8100 chambers per dominant species (S. magellanicum or S. fallax) were placed in the S1 Bog in relatively open ground where there was no obvious hummock-hollow microtopography. The 8100 chambers were not located in the SPRUCE experimental enclosures.
SPRUCE Environmental Monitoring Data: 2010-2016
This data set reports selected ambient environmental monitoring data (public) from the S1 bog for the period June 2010 through 2016. Measurements of the environmental conditions at these stations will serve as a pre-treatment baseline for experimental treatments and provide driver data for future modeling activities.
