Workshop with Evgenii Zakharov on “Interrelation of vegetation and sedimentation processes of soil surface layers in the Tundra-Taiga Transition zone”

  Workshop

Date: Monday, 2nd of December 2019, 10:00 a.m.

Venue: AWI Potsdam, Telegrafenberg A43, conference room

Host: Dr. Stefan Kruse, PostDoc Researcher in the “Polar Terrestrial Environmental Systems” Research Group, Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI)

Speaker: Dr. Evgenii Zakharov, Laboratory of Zoological Investigations, Institute for Biological Problems of Cryolithozone, Yakutsk, Russia

Together with our Geo.X funded guest Dr. Evgenii Zakharov, we want to invite you for a 90-minute workshop on

Interrelation of vegetation and sedimentation processes of soil surface layers in the Tundra-Taiga Transition zone, in Northeast Siberia

Boreal forests store significant amounts of carbon, but this ecosystem’s service might be lost with global warming. Hence, one of the key processes for a proper understanding of carbon deposition and remobilization in permafrost soils in the Tundra-Taiga Transition zone (in Siberia), is the interrelation of vegetation and sedimentation processes of soil surface layers.
Hence, during this workshop, we will present and discuss the preliminary results from soil sample analyses and vegetation biomass assessments.

Evgenii Zakharov is from the Laboratory of Zoological Investigations, Institute for Biological Problems of Cryolithozone Siberian Branch of RAS, Yakutsk, Russia. The involved Geo.X partners are Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) University of Potsdam (UP), German Research Center for Geosciences (GFZ), Technical University of Berlin (TUB).

The workshop will start with two presentations about soils and vegetation at 64 field sites visited in summer 2018 on an expedition to Chukotka and Yakutia. Afterwards we will discuss about the findings and implications.

Date: Monday, 2.12. at 10 am (~90 min)

Location: AWI, A43 conference room

We hope to have a fruitful exchange and, afterwards, we can go to the cantina together with all that want to discuss further on the topic.

With the best wishes,

Stefan & Evgenii
