Process Discovered

ARC scientists discovered that high concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane dissolved in groundwater are transported to arctic streams and rivers and released to the atmosphere. These findings revealed a key process missing from previous carbon budgets in the Arctic, and led to similar discoveries around the world.
