We are excited to announce that our proposal, “Improving Land-Surface Modeling of Evapotranspiration Processes in Tropical Forests” was selected for funding through the Department of Energy Earth System Modeling program. The $760K+ project combines field work at the Soltis Center for Research and Education in Costa Rica with advanced modeling of transpiration in the neotropics. More information on the project may be found here. Project co-investigators include Dr. Georgianne Moore and Dr. Tony Cahill (below) from Texas A&M and Dr. Ruby Leung from Pacific Northwest Laboratory. Dr. Moore is looking for PhD students in Forest Ecophysiology and Climate to join her lab to work on the project.
