Methane dynamics in natural lakes

Understanding patterns and controls of all processes involved in the CH4 cycle in lakes, from its production to oxidation and emission

DCIM112GOPRO

Greenhouse gas emissions from Batang Ai, a tropical reservoir

Assess the different C emission pathways and physical and metabolic processes to shape the C footprint of the reservoir

IMG_0251

Gas exchange mechanisms across the air-water interface

Obtain a better physical understanding in air-water gas exchange processes and to provide the magnitude of gas fluxes.
