EcoSpec Project

The EcoSpec project investigates patterns and associations between meteorological and biological measurements of the ecosystem corresponding to photosynthesis and respiration and hyperspectral data of the land surface. The patterns and associations will help us improve our understanding of the relationship between terrestrial ecosystems and climate.


Mechanism of photosynthesis and respiration being investigated using science questions on plant physiology and remote sensing technologies


Hyperspectral reflectance measurements and other optical measurements supporting ecosystem function research


Modeling approaches accounting for the unique nature of hyperspectral time-series data of natural environments
