Modelling data and results

The Arctic LTER uses models to:

  1. examine theoretical constraints on biogeochemistry and community structure. Interactions of CDOM inputs, water residence time, and light exposure to determine DOC photo - degradation (% loss of the initial pool of CDOM, without replacement).
  2. compare canopy function among arctic tundra types and link that analysis to eddy covariance data;
  3. analyze effects of primary productivity on trophic structure;
  4. analyze hydro-logical and biogeochemical connectivity on arctic hillslopes;
  5. integrate ARC L TER results to assess responses to climate change;
  6. extrapolate biogeochemical properties of ecosystems regionally;
  7. predict fish bioenergetic responses to climate change at the individual and population levels , and
  8. simulate recovery from disturbance.
