Numerical Terradynamic Simulation Group, School of Forestry, University of Montana
Data Center Description
The Numerical Terradynamic Simulation Group (NTSG) is a lab pioneering new approaches for addressing regional ecological problems. NTSG mission is to develop capabilities to quantitatively describe the structure and function of ecosystems, from regional to global scales, using emerging technologies in satellites, geographic information systems, computer simulation and visualization, and biophysical theory.
NTSG has executed a number of studies of forest and natural plant communities. Projects have involved all scales of ecological study: from a single acre to the entire globe. NTSG integrates biometeorology, remote sensing, geographic -information -systems, and -computer -simulation with ecological analysis.
