is an effort to provide global scale fluxes of carbon, water and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere using remote sensing observations.

Remote sensing methods are developed and tested using process-level studies and ecosystem-level fluxes in a diversity of biomes then applied at the global scale with satellite observations. 

  • Satellites provide measures of canopy light absorptance, vegetation phenology and near-surface weather conditions at the global scale. 
  • Micrometeorological towers provide measurements of biosphere-atmosphere fluxes of carbon, water and energy at the ecosystem scale.
  • Ecophysiological measurements provide process-level understanding of component fluxes at leaf to whole plant scales. 


Together, these measurements are used to develop, test and apply remote sensing methods.
