The Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments (NGEE) project will use experiments, observations, and process models to quantify the response of physical, ecological, and biogeochemical processes to atmospheric and climatic change across molecular to landscape scales. A multi-disciplinary team will focus on interactions that drive ecosystem-climate feedbacks through greenhouse gas fluxes and changes in surface energy balance.
