Within the Boreal Plains of north-central Alberta, catchments situated within low permeability glacial terrain are composed of a mosaic of landscape units including ponds, peatlands, and upland aspen forest ecosystems within a sub-humid climatic zone where water deficit conditions are frequent. ...
Carbon and water fluxes are essential components of biospheric processes which directly or indirectly influence climate, surface energy balance, hydrologic processes and hence influence the vegetation productivity, distribution and characteristics. In this research, promising techniques for...
Oak forest carbon and water simulations: model intercomparisons and evaluations against independent dataDownload
Baldocchi, D.D., Luo, Y., Grant, R.F., Hui, D., Amthor, J.S., Sun, G., Wullschleger, S.D., King, A.W., Johnson, D.W., Hanson, P.J., Williams, M., Thornton, P.E., Hartley, A., Kimball, J.S., Cushman, R.M., Hunt Jr., E.R., McNulty, S.G., Wang, S., Wilson, K.B.
Models represent our primary method for integration of small-scale, process-level phenomena into a comprehensive description of forest-stand or ecosystem function. They also represent a key method for testing hypotheses about the response of forest ecosystems to multiple changing environmental...
