Soils hold more carbon (C) than any other component of the terrestrial biosphere! In this module, students will explore high-frequency, sensor-based datasets documenting climate variables and the emissions of C (as CO2) from soils to the atmosphere, and learn about drivers and patterns of soil respiration. This module, like all Project EDDIE modules, is designed with an A-B-C structure to make it flexible and adaptable to a range of student levels and course structures.
Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) is a community effort aimed at developing teaching resources and instructors that address quantitative reasoning and scientific concepts using open inquiry of publicly available data. Project EDDIE modules are designed with an A-B-C structure to make them flexible and adaptable to a range of student levels and course structures.
