The Wheatland Lab will be giving our year one project update for our CFRU project entitled “Measurements, Models and Maps: Large-area Forest Inventory from Airborne LiDAR Data” during the 2020 winter advisory meeting.
Investigating the patterns of vegetation-permafrost dynamics as determined by landscape-scale disturbance
The University of Maine conducts research in collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory toward a subset of science objectives outlined in the Phase 3 proposal of the Next-generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) in the Arctic. The NGEE-Arctic project is using observations, experiments and modeling to improve our predictive understanding of Arctic ecosystem […]
Valeria Briones is an MS candidate in the School of Forest Resources. Climate warming is affecting the social and ecological systems of the northeastern U.S., including changes in the seasonal timing and duration of biophysical processes. Phenology is the repeated occurrence of seasonal cycles, which are influenced by climate, thus it is important to understand […]
Xinyuan Wei is a PhD candidate in the School of Forest Resources. His research is focused on (1) the impacts of wildfires on the global terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle, (2) the patterns of biome carbon fluxes in response to droughts at different time scales, (3) modeling the dissolved organic carbon flux, and (4) estimating carbon […]
Ph.D. Oregon State University (2006) M.S. University of Maine (1999) B.S. SUNY ESF (1996) My research, teaching and outreach interests broadly involve scaling questions and geospatial applications in forests and ecosystems. My research activities range from historical remote sensing analysis of tropical deforestation to biogeochemical modeling of ecosystem-climate feedbacks in the Arctic; from airborne measurement of forest […]
