Stories about Zicheng Yu

Peatlands, found in both arctic and tropical climates, can help reduce carbon accumulation in the atmosphere.

First study of the extent of global peatland and carbon storage over the last 130,000 years fills in key knowledge gap, affirms peatlands’ effectiveness as a long-term carbon storage mechanism over a long timescale

The National Science Foundation has awarded Professor Zicheng Yu a grant to study the rapidly changing Arctic and track the dynamics of peatlands as part of one of its ten “Big Ideas” for scientists to tackle.
