General information and objectives

  • To determine the biospheric controls of the hydrologic cycle through field measurements for the purpose of developing models of energy and water fluxes in the soil-vegetation-atmosphere system at temporal and spatial scales ranging from vegetation patches to GCM grid cells.
  • To develop appropriate data bases that can be used to describe the interactions between the biosphere and the physical Earth system, and to test or validate model simulations of such interactions.
