Impacts of Spring Phenology on Carbon and Energy Fluxes in the Midwest and Northeast USA

Research contributions
Research Contributions

  • Phenology data from R. Ahas, J. Caprio, X. Chen, DWD, A. Menzel, J. O’Keefe, and WPS

  • Flux data from S. Wofsy/Harvard Forest (1992-2000), Lamont ARM (1994-1998), K. Davis/Park Falls/ WLEF (1997-1999), S. Grimmond/H. Schmid/ Morgan Monroe (1999-2000) , and D. Baldocchi/ K. Wilson/Oak Ridge (1996-2000)

  • Phenology compositing technique adapted from a method developed by X. Chen

Research goals

  • Dynamic Biosphere Models

  • Terrestrial Biosphere Change Detection

  • Improve Understanding of Atmosphere-Biosphere Interactions

Integrated approach
