Coastal Marsh Ecology and Carbon Cycling

Coastal wetland canopy photosynthesis and carbon cycling.

We are creating a multi-year data record of canopy photosynthesis using the SIF technique and carbon cycling at the Virginia Coastal Reserve. This is led by graduate student Hannah Mast and is a joint effort with UVA ecologist Xi Yang. This work is funded by the National Science Foundation.
