  • Woodbuffalo national Park is suitable for ecological studied on carbon dynamics. There are three main forest types. Jack pine forests dominate on the higher terrace with sandy glaciolacustrine deposit. Black spruce stands locate on lower topograpy or around bog site. Trembling aspen is dominant species on the terrrace with fine-grained silty sediments. We settled automatic meteorological data logging system using satelite phone in June 2014. Additional maintenance for whole-year monitoring has been done in September 2014. We can access semi-real time data check on HP of Cryosalon. A chronosequence of stand replacement fire of black spruce stands was settled in WBNP, and soil characteristics of younger site was surveyed.
