Summary

Carbon isotopes, climate dynamics and carbon cycling in temperate forests

Abstract:

I am investigating carbon isotope labels in conifer and deciduous temperate forests in southern Ontario. I am linking these labels to historical extreme weather events and regional climate dynamics using meteorological flux data collected at our field sites. My work includes tree-ring analyses of tree bores and discus, carbon isotope extraction and analysis of whole wood, comparisons to meteorological flux data and historical records, and modelling/predicting future trends in regional climate using carbon isotope labels.
