Forests and swamps of Siberia in the global carbon cycle

Abstract

Results of measurements and calculations of carbon budget parameters of forests and swamps of Siberia are reported. The zonal variability of reserves (and an increment in reserves) of carbon in forest and swamp ecosystems is characterized, carbon dioxide fluxes are measured directly by means of microeddy pulsations, and an uncertainty brought into the calculation of carbon budget parameters by forest fires is estimated.
