Aquatic Carbon Biogeochemistry of the Pacific Coastal Temperate Rainforest Region

This workshop will define the state of the science for understanding carbon fluxes from Pacific Coastal Temperate Rainforest (PCTR) ecosystems.  It is our hope to develop a quantitative understanding of the relationships among land cover, hydrology, and riverine carbon export for to coastal environments. We will be addressing the following questions: 1) What are the biogeochemical fluxes of water and carbon across the terrestrial – freshwater – marine interfaces of the PCTR and are they changing through time?
