The objectives of the research are: (1) measure the spectral properties (i.e. how light is absorbed and reflected) and biochemical constituents (e.g. chlorophyll, water, nitrogen, carbon) of arctic vegetation at the ground-level in various vegetation communities across the Western Arctic (e.g. low-arctic to high-arctic); (2) investigate the potential of using satellite based multi-angular imaging ...

The goal of this project is to take part in establishment of a long-term observation network to measure concentrations of two important greenhouse gases (ozone and carbon dioxide) as well as bromine oxide. Bromine oxide is a key chemical reagent determining the presence of ozone accompanied with full set of meteorological data and detailed geographic information across the Arctic Ocean and Hudson ...

Light leaving the ocean's surface can be detected remotely by satellite. With the proper conversion factors satellites can tell us the amount & growth of plant material in the oceans. Microscopic plants comprise the base of the marine food chain, serving as food for all animals. Because of their dark coloration plants absorb light & produce heat. We are studying what colors & how much light is abs...
