Active Research Projects

NGEE Arctic

NGEE Arctic

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.

NGEE Tropics

NGEE Tropics

We’re part of an multi institutional project which aims to dramatically reduce uncertainty surrounding the response of tropical forest ecosystems to future climate change scenarios.



We have a number of active NASA projects that collectively seek to leverage NASA airborne imagery to enhance the link between remotely sensed data and process based ecosystem models.


Global Change Experimental Facility Design and Management

We design and manage manipulative experiments that examine the effects of carbon dioxide, ozone, temperature and precipitation on natural and managed ecosystems using fully open air approaches, glass houses, and field enclosures that use both passive and active control systems.
