Title : Spatial and seasonal variations of Q(10) determined by soil respiration measurements at a Sierra Nevadan forest
Journal : Global Biogeochemical Cycles
Comment : Seasonally, the Q10 values calculated on the basis of the average soil CO2 efflux and temperature (10 cm) across the sites could vary from 1.05 to 2.3. Q10 and soil temperature are negatively correlated through a simple linear relationship with R2 values of 0.45, 0.40, and 0.54 for soil temperature at 5-, 10-, and 20-cm depth, respectively. However, Q10 and soil moisture are positively correlated with R2 values of 0.81, 0.86, and 0.51 for soil temperature at 5-, 10-, and 20-cm depth, respectively.
