Brief description Resolving the role of aquatic systems in processing terrestrial carbon. The aquatic and terrestrial carbon cycles are intrinsically linked with changes in terrestrial carbon dynamics altering the aquatic carbon cycle. However, the main methodology employed to assess land-atmosphere carbon dioxide fluxes fails to account for carbon losses through subsurface lateral exports of carbon via groundwater. This project aims to resolve the importance and drivers of this pathway, along with the ultimate fate of the carbon once it reaches the aquatic environment. This project aims to contribute to closing a significant gap in our understanding of terrestrial-aquatic carbon cycling and will quantify a potentially important yet poorly understood component of regional and global carbon budgets.
