I am a PhD-student interested in the carbon balance of mires. My research focuses on the exchange of greenhouse gases between the mire and the atmosphere and carbon exported in the mire discharge. The research is conducted at a mire with one of the longest complete year data records on CO2 net ecosystem exchange in the world, Degerö Stormyr, situated about 70 kilometres from the city of Umeå, northern Sweden. The main objective of my research is to understand what major factors control the net carbon exchange of this boreal oligotrophic minerogenic mire. I am especially interested in the major carbon exchange routes during the different seasons of the year and how weather conditions affect the exchange routes.
