According to Sevilleta LTER (2014), “This work revealed that soil CO2 concentrations are substantially lower than previously assumed. This advance has enabled a reevaluation of carbonate carbon isotope composition as a proxy for past atmospheric CO2 concentrations, producing a result that agrees much more closely with the other proxies” (Climate forecasts).
According to the University of New Mexico Sevilleta Field Station (2014), it is deemed a natural preserve and is closed to general public use. Special permits are required for research and other activities. The refuge has been closed to livestock grazing since 1974, and public use of the area (e.g. hunting, hiking, camping) is limited. The Sevilleta, therefore, remains a secure and undisturbed site for long-term field research” (para. 4).
