Global climate is strongly controlled by the distribution of carbon between the atmosphere and the land. We study where carbon is located in river basins and the physical processes that control carbon storage to understand human impacts on and future trends in global climate. Look through our website for more information on our research, teaching resources, current progress in the field of landscape carbon storage, and pictures of our field sites, from the Yukon River to the Rocky Mountains!
