Terrestrial Ecosystems Analysis Laboratory (TEAL) Conducts research on forest ecosystem carbon and nitrogen dynamics, with emphasis on the effects of atmospheric deposition, air pollution and climate change.
TEAL researchers use technologies in remote sensing, field and laboratory investigations, and computer modeling to study
• Forest decline
• Carbon cycle at local, regional, and global scales
• Nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems
• Atmosphere/biosphere exchange & trace gas flux
• Land use/land cover change, local to global scales
