A scientific report describing the results of the CiPEHR Experiment as of 2011. This report attempts to answer these questions:

(1) Does ecosystem warming cause a net release of C from the ecosystem to the atmosphere?,
(2) Does the decomposition of old C that comprises the bulk of the soil C pool influence ecosystem C loss?, and
(3) How do winter and summer warming alone, and in combination, affect ecosystem C exchange?
