TERMAR

FLUJOS TERMAR: ENUMERAGING CO2 SOURCES AND SINKS IN A REGIONAL COASTAL TERRESTRIAL AND MARINE HABITAT MATRIX.

(Dr. S. Smith)

Flujos TERMAR is a very important proposed research program that includes investigators in three research Divisions of CICESE, as well as collaboration with research groups at CIBNOR, San Diego State University, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and Bowie State University. The proposed research is designed to examine both the vertical and lateral fluxes of carbon, in both the coastal terrestrial and coastal marine environment near Ensenada, Baja California. Vertical carbon flux is commonly measured with “eddy flux towers.” There presently is only one terrestrial flux tower in Mexico and no marine towers. This project will add one of each as permanent facilities and two mobile towers for experimental purposes. In general, carbon flux studies do not consider lateral transfers; this study will evaluate the quantitative significance of these transfers. The research has implications with respect to carbon accounting within the terms of the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Further, the research will become an integral part of the North American Carbon Project, which includes Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
