Tracking carbon source-sink shifts in Kaziranga

Indian scientists have begun tracking Kaziranga National Park’s behaviour as a carbon sink and source, in a long-term pan-India research project.
The Park, which is flooded annually by the Brahmaputra, is essentially a carbon see-saw with waterlogging playing a key role in carbon book keeping during the monsoon months, researchers said.
The forest ecosystem fluctuates from a carbon source to sink during the course of the year with the change in seasons mirroring temperature and rainfall variations.
