A major contributor to the uncertainties in climate change predictions is the unresolved evolution of carbon (C) sources and sinks. As inland waters were integrated as a relevant component of the global C cycle during the past decade, the question: do freshwaters substantially offset the continental carbon sink? became paramount. My work, pivoting around different facets of aquatic biogeochemistry, aims to contribute to our understanding of C processing across all types of freshwater ecosystems and its evolution in response to global change.
