Ecosystem: We study the forest and freshwater ecosystems upon which society depends.

Dynamics: We model how ecosystems change over time in response to land-use, climate change, atmospheric deposition, and management.  We measure carbon, water, and energy exchange between ecosystems and the atmosphere using eddy-covariance and biometeorology sensors.

Forecasting: We predict the future of ecosystems by combining observations and ecosystem models using statistical techniques.
