GSGC Funded Activities 2014 – 2015

A CO2-Monitoring Network for Climate Literacy

Space Grant funded research at the University of Georgia is used to investigate the scaling up from the atmospheric micro-scale to the regional scale, using a combination of tower flux measurements, amid a heterogeneous vegetated surface, in the Southeast of the US. This study is particularly important anywhere on the earth's surface where the in homogeneities in surface properties must be accounted for in NASA type climate models.
Another GSGSC funded project at UGA continues the development of a suite of climate-literacy labs by extending an array of CO2 monitors in the Atlanta region. The data from the CO2 network will be used to enhance the laboratory modules of the most popular introductory science course at GSU - Introduction to Weather and Climate (Geography 1112).

Feasibility study on the assessment of surface characteristics evaporative and carbon dioxide fluxes

This study supports a student who is researching how to improve and refine the interpretation of measurements of land surface characteristics using a combination of remote sensing and in situ measurements, so as to determine the exchange of water vapor and carbon dioxide at the field scale. Surface flux measurements will be used to ground truth satellite measurements to provide land use history and land cover characteristics at a turf site.
