Biogeochemical Cycling at the Urban Interface

This project seeks to understand the role of plant evapotranspiration (a plant’s water loss that happens from evaporation and transpiration) and soil moisture on urban microclimates. The project integrates physical measurements with point-scale modeling to understand the effectiveness of the DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model s land model on urban trees and forest patches.
