Fe cycling in permafrost systems

Recently, we have begun investigating Fe cycling in permafrost systems and the consequences for sequestration and mobilization of carbon. We conduct lab-based studies and fieldwork in Stordalen mire (Abisko, Sweden) to determine the association between iron and carbon and the potential release of carbon as CH4 and CO2.
