Biometeorology is an interdisciplinary science concerning the interactions between the biosphere and lower atmosphere. Theory, measurements, and models are used to help improve our understanding of the biophysical processes and feedback mechanisms that control heat and mass transfer near the Earth's surface. Our current research concerns the impacts of human activities, such as land use change and land management, on energy, water, carbon, and nitrogen exchange between the land and atmosphere.
