The session will discuss the climate, and other, impacts on the role of lakes, streams and flow pathways for atmospheric CO2 and CH4 emission, as well as lateral C export, in Siberia. The session will also discuss various research approaches needed to address urgent questions. The outcome of discussions will be of importance for stakeholders and the scientific community as this will provide new insights of the role of inland waters in the C cycle in one of the least studied but largest terrestrial northern ecosystems in the world.
