Climatic variation drives loss and restructuring of carbon and nitrogen in boreal forest wildfire

Dataset for "Climatic Variation Drives Loss and Restructuring of Carbon and Nitrogen in Boreal Forest Wildfire" Johan Eckdahl, Jeppe Kristensen, and Daniel Metcalfe

Short summary
This study found climate to be a driving force for increasing per area emissions of greenhouse gases and removal of important nutrients from high-latitude forests due to wildfire. It used detailed direct measurements over a large area to uncover patterns and mechanisms of restructuring of forest carbon and nitrogen pools that are extrapolatable to larger regions. It also takes a step forward in filling gaps in global knowledge of northern forest response to climate-change-strengthened wildfires.
