Characterized by vast amounts of carbon stored in permafrost and a rapidly evolving landscape, the Arctic is an important focal point for the study of climate change. These are sensitive systems, yet the mechanisms responsible for those sensitivities remain poorly understood and inadequately represented in Earth System Models. The NGEE Arctic project seeks to reduce uncertainty in climate prediction by better understanding critical land-atmosphere feedbacks in terrestrial ecosystems of Alaska.

Stefanie and I are busy preparing for the 2013 field campaign.This year we hope to avoid the mass carnage that clogged the cooling fan in the Leaf Chamber Fluorometer. The simple solution is bug hoods for the 6400s.
