Short summary
Damming did not significantly increase carbon dioxide emissions from the reservoir surface, as shown in a case study in a reservoir constrained within the narrow upper Mekong River valley. This finding might provide some evidence to the green credits for hydropower in China. One-year monitoring of carbon dioxide emissions from the water surface found that the higher emissions were concentrated at the riverine inlets in winter and more related to the mixing process of inflow and reservoir water.
Damming did not significantly increase carbon dioxide emissions from the reservoir surface, as...
