EMERGE: Understanding and predicting high-latitude feedbacks to climate

Our LBNL group is a new partner in the ongoing EMERGE project (website), which is a Department of Energy (Genomic Science Program)-funded interdisciplinary investigation of how permafrost thaw, driven by a changing climate, is altering carbon cycling in Arctic peatlands. We are working to integrate observations and improved system understanding to develop and test predictive models of climate feedbacks from these dynamic systems.
