Short summary
In this study soil CO2 efflux was measured at a montane mixed-forest site and a subalpine spruce forest site. Each site consisted of an undisturbed forest and two adjacent windthrow areas, differing regarding the time since disturbance. The combination of chronosequence and direct time-series approaches enabled us to investigate soil CO2 efflux dynamics over 12 years post-disturbance. According to our estimates, ~ 500 to 700 g C m-2 yr-1 are released via soil CO2 efflux from younger windthrows.
