Research Professor with the Flathead Lake Biological Station and Numerical Terradynamic Simulation Group (NTSG) of The University of Montana. My expertise and research interests involve soil-vegetation-atmosphere water, energy and trace gas relations, remote sensing, and ecosystem process modeling. My current research activities integrate biophysical theory, field measurements and emerging technologies including satellite optical and microwave remote sensing, GIS and hydro-ecological models to describe the function, distribution and condition of vegetation and associated carbon, water and energy cycle processes. My interests emphasize a landscape perspective for understanding ecosystem processes, integrating across disciplines and various scales.
