Returning to the show is Shane Coffield, UCI Earth System Science PhD Candidate, bringing his latest findings about how California’s forests are losing their capacity to stash our carbon emissions. This recent UCI study on how higher heat will limit ecosystem’s role in removing atmospheric CO2, was published in the American Geophysical Union Journal. Joining Shane and James Randerson on this project were: Kyle Hemes, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University; Charles Koven, Climate & Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; and Michael Goulden, UCI professor of Earth system science and ecology & evolutionary biology.
