Numerical Terradynamic Simulation Group, School of Forestry, University of Montana
Service Provider DescriptionThe 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.
