Bartlett Experimental Forest

North American Carbon Program (NACP) & Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA)

Carbon cycling in forests represents a key point of interaction between terrestrial ecosystems and the earth’s climate.  As a result, efforts to quantify and enhance forest carbon sequestration have become important goals of U.S. Forest Service and the University of New Hampshire....read more

Interactions between Climate Change, Carbon Cycling and Land Use in a Mixed Agricultural, Residential and Forested Landscape

Because natural and managed ecosystems are vital to the region's economic and cultural well-being, understanding the long-term effects of climate change is paramount. However, ecosystems also play an important role in climate regulation....read more

Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)

The overarching NH EPSCoR project objective is to better understand complex interactions among climate, land use, ecosystem function and society. The proposed work brings together disciplines of earth, atmospheric, environmental and ecological sciences....read more

Hubbard Brook LTER

The overall goal of the HBR-LTER program is to improve understanding of the response of Northern Forest ecosystems to natural and anthropogenic disturbances.... read more

Harvard Forest LTER

The Chronic Nitrogen Amendment plots were established in 1988 as part of the National Science Foundation Long-Term Ecological Research program, and are located on Prospect Hill at the Harvard Forest in central Massachusetts (42 30'N, 72 10'W). Chronic N data ....read more

NASA Carbon

In the study of terrestrial carbon cycling, developing methods by which leaf, plant and stand level processes can be related to landscapes, regions and continents represents an important challenge and is a core component of the North American Carbon Program....read more

NASA Terrestrial Ecosystems

The structure and function of forests have been dramatically altered by the intensification of disturbance and chronic stressors such as nitrogen deposition. Given the importance of forests in the climate system, understanding their response will improve the ability of models to predict future changes in climate and identify potential feedbacks....read more
