Ecosystem Ecology

Our Ecosystem Ecology projects include:


HyspIRI and flux towers

Measurement of ecosystem metabolism across climatic and vegetation gradients in California for the 2013-2014 NASA AVIRIS/MASTER airborne campaign. The HyspIRI project makes use of flux towers at several of its sites to assess the airborne hyperspectral data. Flux towers measure … Continue reading

Scaling Hyperspectral Imagery

Scaling of inter- and intra-annual variation in foliar traits derived from imaging spectroscopy A common assumption in remote sensing is that a constituent map made from imagery in one year is representative of constituents in subsequent years. This assumption has … Continue reading

HyspIRI

Hyperspectral spectroscopy provides the opportunity to estimate key ecosystem traits beyond those derived from traditional remote sensing techniques due to the increased spectral resolution. The HyspIRI project attempts to make measurements of ecosystem metabolism, and we hope to characterize variations … Continue reading
