Soil Carbon Dynamics in Residential Lawns Converted from Appalachian Mixed Oak Stands
The conversion of unmanaged forest land to homesites dominated by managed turfgrass lawns continues to increase and has large potential impacts on biogeochemical cycling. The conversion process from forest into mowed ...
On-the-Fly Massively Multitemporal Change Detection Using Statistical Quality Control Charts and Landsat Data
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06)
One challenge to implementing spectral change detection algorithms using multitemporal Landsat data is that key dates and periods are often missing from the record due to weather disturbances and lapses in continuous ...
A model using marginal efficiency of investment to analyze carbon and nitrogen interactions in terrestrial ecosystems
(European Geosciences Union, 2014-09-12)
Carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycles are coupled in terrestrial ecosystems through multiple processes including photosynthesis, tissue allocation, respiration, N fixation, N uptake, and decomposition of litter and soil organic ...
Kirch Flat Campground Recommendation Report
Providing opportunities for outdoor recreation experiences on public lands is essential for the quality of life of individuals as well as beneficial to land management efforts by encouraging and developing stronger stewardship ...
Analyzing Trade-Offs, Synergies, and Drivers among Timber Production, Carbon Sequestration, and Water Yield in Pinus elliotii Forests in Southeastern USA
Managing <i>Pinus elliotii</i> forests for timber production and/or carbon sequestration is a common management objective, but can negatively affect water yield due to high losses from evapotranspiration. Thus, understanding ...
Vernalization and the chilling requirement to exit bud dormancy: shared or separate regulation?
Similarities have long been recognized between vernalization, the prolonged exposure to cold temperatures that promotes the floral transition in many plants, and the chilling requirement to release bud dormancy in woody ...
Network analysis reveals multiscale controls on streamwater chemistry

Isotopic signals of summer denitrification in a northern hardwood forested catchment
(Natl Acad Sciences, 2014-11-18)
Searching for biogeochemical hot spots in three dimensions: Soil C and N cycling in hydropedologic settings in a northern hardwood forest
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2014-08-01)
Understanding and predicting the extent, location, and function of biogeochemical hot spots at the watershed scale is a frontier in environmental science. We applied a hydropedologic approach to identify (1) biogeochemical ...
Developing a Topographic Model to Predict the Northern Hardwood Forest Type within Carolina Northern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus coloratus) Recovery Areas of the Southern Appalachians
The northern hardwood forest type is an important habitat component for the endangered Carolina northern flying squirrel (CNFS; Glaucomys sabrinus coloratus) for den sites and corridor habitats between boreo-montane conifer ...
