The goal of 14Constraint is to enhance the availability and use of radiocarbon data as constraints for process-based understanding of the age distribution of carbon in and respired by soils and ecosystems. A team of researchers who is envisioned who will
- work collaboratively with others on building an open community database of 14C data
- fill gaps in data and understanding by making new radiocarbon measurements in soil and respired CO2
- use models to interpret data for improving models of soil C cycling and
- produce global data products for comparison with models.
