My PhD is exploring new ways of modelling and upscaling carbon fluxes from boreal peatlands. In particular, I work with drones and spectral sensors to collect high resolution surface temperature data and vegetation indices. This information will be combined with carbon flux data and footprint modelling to improve our understanding of the drivers of peatland carbon fluxes. I will also assess the impact of spatial heterogeneity of vegetation on carbon flux modelling and upscaling. The knowledge generated from this project will improve our ability to partition carbon fluxes measured by eddy covariance and help quantify uncertainties when carbon fluxes are upscaled.
