Current Research

Atmospheric modeling directly above the forest canopy

Current atmospheric modeling represents both the biosphere and the atmosphere directly above the forest canopy as coarse boundary conditions. The biosphere is expressed as a 2-D surface that does not take into account specific qualities of the forest canopy (i.e. canopy height and crown size). Directly above the forest canopy, it is assumed that mixing allows us to ignore canopy heterogeneity. Present research suggests that a more high-resolution 3-D canopy is needed for a more accurate representation of the interaction between biosphere and atmosphere.
