Environmental & Climate Sciences Department Seminar

"Modeling stomatal conductance: what, why, and how?"

Presented by Tom Buckley, Univ. Calif, Davis

Thursday, January 13, 2022, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Leaf stomatal pores represent a key bottleneck in the exchange of CO2 and water vapor between land plants and the atmosphere. The diffusive conductivity of the leaf surface, conventionally called 'stomatal conductance', varies dynamically as stomata respond to changes in light, VPD and soil moisture. In this talk, I will briefly describe stomatal conductance and its importance for ecology, hydrology and climate. I will then describe a range of approaches to predicting stomatal conductance in models. Finally, I will conclude with a brief discussion of some topical issues involving the prediction and interpretation of stomatal conductance.
