Forest Ecosystem Dynamics

Project Description
The Forest Ecosystem Dynamics (FED) Project is concerned with modeling
and monitoring ecosystem processes and patterns in response to natural
and anthropogenic effects. The project uses coupled ecosystem models
and remote sensing models and measurements to predict and observe
ecosystem change. The overall objective of the FED project is to link
and use models of forest dynamics, soil processes, and canopy
energetics to understand how ecosystem response to change affects
patterns and processes in northern and boreal forests and to assess
the implications for global change.
