Grants:"Calibration of a regional ecosystem/atmosphere model to eddy-flux data.", DOE, , 2006 - 2008
Questions addressed:Relationship between fine-scale community structure and processes and regional ecosystem dynamics.
Data usage:I will use eddy-flux and vegetation data from a number of flux sites in the eastern US to constrain the linked ecosystem/atmosphere model ED2/RAMS. This model will then be used to forecast the long-term respose of the eastern us to various climate change and land use scenerios and to produce short-term forecasts of ecosystem services conditioned on seasonal climate forecasts.
