research overview

  • Long-term Objective: To integrate water and carbon balance research toward furthering our understanding of their importance to climate change and its effect on people and their environment. Water Cycle: Evaporation, transpiration, canopy and stomatal conductance, soil moisture and temperature. Carbon Cycle: Net ecosystem exchange, photosynthesis, respiration. Spatial and Temporal Variations: Fine-scale mapping and visualization of vegetation canopies, soil moisture and temperature, energy and radiation fluxes, remote sensing and modeling of surface water and carbon cycles. Atmospheric Turbulence: Boundary layers, eddy diffusivities, wind profiles, turbulent flux footprints. Geographic Locations: North American Great Lakes, forests, rangelands, tundra, wetlands.
