ABOUT THE LAB

We focus on quantifying mass and energy exchange between vegetated landscapes and the atmosphere at scales ranging from individual leaves to entire watersheds; exploring the interface of soils, vegetation and the atmosphere in a watershed context; and understanding water and biogeochemical cycles in the face of global change. 


Projects are currently underway in North Carolina, Virginia and Montana and include investigations of coupled carbon and water cycles in a variety of ecosystems; understanding vegetation processes in a watershed context; and assessing secondary succession using remote sensing tools.
