Current Projects


Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment - Arctic

The NGEE project is a collaboration among scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, University of Alaska Fairbanks and our partners at leading universities and other state and federal agencies.  The aim of the project is to develop a process-rich ecosystem model, in which the evolution of Arctic ecosystems in a changing climate can be modeled at the scale of a grid cell in a high resolution Earth System Model.  Work at Brookhaven is focused on Vegetation Dynamics.

NGEE-Arctic in ten-hundred words of science

Transient carbon and nitrogen pool dynamics in loblolly pines grown at elevated CO2

We are investigating whole tree carbon and nitrogen metabolism in loblolly pines grown at elevated CO2 concentration with and without a supplemental N supply.  These data will contribute to efforts to increase understanding of carbon partitioning in forests in a high CO2 environment.

Increase rapeseed oil yield using a systems biology approach

We are part of an international consortium which is aiming to increase carbon partitioning towards oil storage in rape seed.

Developing an Integrated Atmosphere-Ecosystem Model

In a project led by Wei Wu (Atmospheric Sciences Division) we are attempting to building a coupled atmosphere-ecosystem model.
