Exploiting Nature to Reduce Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Jülich, 3 September 2015 – Plants and soils react differently to the increasing carbon dioxide content in the air. As yet, it has been difficult to draw up an exact balance. A group of young researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich is now using improved measuring techniques to record the exchange of greenhouse gases between fields, woods, and other ecosystems with the atmosphere more reliably and simply than was previously the case. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is supporting the project with funding of € 280,000 per year up to July 2018.
