Modelling Biophysical Variables and Carbon Dioxide Exchange in Arctic Tundra Landscapes using High Spatial Resolution Remote Sensing Data
Vegetation community patterns and processes are indicators and integrators of climate. Recently, scientists have shown that climate change is most pronounced in circumpolar regions. Arctic ecosystems have traditionally ...
Remote Sensing of Vegetation Change Across a Latitudinal Gradient in the Canadian Arctic
Global air surface temperatures and precipitation have increased over the last several decades resulting in a trend of greening across the Circumpolar Arctic. The spatial variability of warming and the inherent effects on ...
Modeling Biophysical Variables in the Canadian High Arctic Using Synthetic Aperture Radar Data
The estimation or modeling of biophysical variables such as surface roughness, vegetation phytomass, and soil moisture in the Arctic is an important step towards understanding arctic energy fluxes, effects of changing ...
Biophysical Remote Sensing and Terrestrial CO2 Exchange at Cape Bounty, Melville Island
Cape Bounty, Melville Island is a partially vegetated High Arctic landscape with three main plant communities: polar semi-desert (47% of the study area), mesic tundra (31%) , and wet sedge meadows (7%). The objective of ...
