The overarching goal of this research is to understand the effects of temperature and moisture variability on growth of forest vegetation in the southern Arctic, and to use the relationship between temperature/moisture and tree growth to construct a model of patterns of greening and browning in the forest and forest-t...

The aim of this project is to study how greenhouse gases are exchanged between tundra and atmosphere. This will be related to environmental variables, such as soil and weather, to understand how climate change will impact the land, and in turn how these impacts might influence the climate.
Previous measurements indicate that tundras near the Daring Lake Research Station are a net sink for CO2 d...

Forest Fire Effects on Vegetation and Wildlife Habitat use: Research sites will be accessed by helicopter. Sites are located in burns of different ages. In the summer, small teams will complete vegetation plots, assess species composition and percent cover, and assess wildlife abundance. In the winter, helicopter track surveys will be completed.
Forest Monitoring (ARNEWS and SI/MAB plots): The...
