Title: A Multiscale Approach to Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling within a High Elevation Watershed

Abstract

This funding represents a small sub-award related the larger project titled: A Multiscale Approach to Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Cycling within a High Elevation Watershed. The goal of the sub-award was to facilitate the characterization of carbon and radiocarbon data collected from the East River watershed outside Gothic, Colorado USA. During the period of funding from 8/1/15 until 7/31/17, we sampled 40 soil profiles and collected ~325 soil samples. This funding supported the collection, processing, and elemental analysis of each of these samples. In addition, the funding allowed for the further density separation of a subset of soil resulting in 60 measurements of 13C and 14C of bulk soil and density separates. Funding also supported installation of temperature and moisture data sensors arrays, soil gas wells, and soil water lysimeters. From this infrastructure, a steady stream data including soil gas, water, and physical information have been generated to support the larger research project.
