Mary Whelan

Mary Whelan uses innovative methods to study the land carbon sink. The amount of carbon taken up by plants is the largest flux in the carbon cycle and cannot be observed directly at scales larger than a leaf. We can gain some insight into this flux using a combination of atmospheric tracers and remote sensing techniques. Whelan coordinates the International Carbonyl Sulfide Research Group (cosanova.org) to promote collaboration and creative insight into global and regional biosphere function.
