Ecosystems: We study the forest and freshwater ecosystems upon which society depends.
Dynamics: We model how ecosystems change over time in response to land-use, climate change, atmospheric deposition, and management. We measure carbon, water, and energy exchange between ecosystems and the atmosphere using eddy-covariance and biometeorology sensors.
Forecasting: We predict the future of ecosystems by combining observations and ecosystem models using statistical techniques.
We have a Ph.D opportunity for Fall 2018 in water quality forecasting
