    Assessment of North American Forest Carbon Dynamics: Tools for Monitoring, Reporting, and Projecting. Year: Forest Service scientists and cooperators assessed past and prospective carbon stocks for representative study sites in Canada, the United States, and Mexico and analyzed the effects of natural disturbance, climate change, and management. In the summer of , a workshop was held in Portsmouth, NH, to discuss land measurement techniques for the North American Carbon Program. Over 40 sci- tists representing government agencies, academia and nonprofit research organi- tions located in Canada, the US and Mexico participated. During.

    Finally, my research focuses on landscape characterization through statistical and spatial modeling and spatial analysis approaches. Geospatial data and spatial digital technologies (e.g., geographic information systems, satellite remote sensing, and global positioning systems) and approaches are developed and applied to study ecological. Asian Americans encounter a range of health issues often unknown to the American public, policy makers, researchers and even clinicians. National research often combines Asian Available Formats: eBook Hardcover Softcover.

The Democratic political debates are ripe with discussion of global warming. Climate activists continue their protests. Building on this foundation, current projects include a new book examining influences that shaped the work of American landscape modernist Dan Kiley, as well as writings on entrepreneurial environments – as cities evolve in response to diverse forces, the urban landscape is moving to a pro-active rather than re-active stance.

Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including impacts from increased extreme weather events, wildfire, decreased air quality, threats to mental health, and illnesses transmitted by food, water, and disease-carriers such as mosquitoes and ticks.

Some of these health impacts are already underway in the United States. Environmental System Science Principal Investigators Meeting.

indicators of climate change. More broadly, my research seeks to understand ecological, biogeographic, and geomorphic factors affecting landscape patterns at a host of space-time scales.

Finally, my research focuses on landscape characterization through statistical and spatial modeling and spatial analysis approaches. Research at the Harvard Forest: Global Change Ecology-Forests, Ecosystem Function, the Future Global change ecology is the line of scientific inquiry that integrates the responses of organisms, ecosystems, and their environments with changes in human activity and climate.

Global climate change is recognized as a threat to species survival and the health of natural systems. Scientists worldwide are looking at the ecological and hydrological impacts resulting from climate change.

Climate change will make future efforts to restore and manage wetlands more complex. Wetland systems are vulnerable to changes in quantity and quality of Cited by: Adam Terando is a USGS Research Ecologist (Climate Impacts) with the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center.

Project Methods Because semi-arid rangeland ecosystems often exhibit nonlinear dynamics, we will use the state-and-transition model theory as a conceptual underpinning to study plant community attributes and key ecological processes involving C, N and water.

C, N and water processes will be studied to provide insight into potential mechanisms that govern changes.

Soe Myint, Ozone air pollution is increasing in many rural areas, and does not decline at night as much as in urban areas. This causes visible damage to plants and hidden effects on economic yield. This project improves crop loss assessment due to ozone and characterizes the mechanism of ozone damage.
