Artificial intelligence applied to multiple remote sensing datasets accurately represents shrub distribution across hillslopes at the Kougarok field site.
Field observations and model simulations confirm the presence of unfrozen permafrost in shrub-dominated landscapes.
Light-harvesting processes involved in photosynthesis by tundra plants are unexpectedly sensitive to growth at low temperatures.
Progress and Accomplishments
Seasoned by the NGEE Arctic project, scientist gets tapped for a new opportunity.
NGEE Arctic contributed to the Arctic Report Card chapter on ’Tundra Greenness’ including changes in the cover of alder shrubs that impact local nutrient cycling.
Numerous posters, oral, and organized sessions submitted to AGU continue to highlight science and science leadership by members of the NGEE Arctic project.
Scientists from across the country gather for their ninth annual NGEE Arctic All-Hands meeting to celebrate success and discuss progress and plans for the project.
