    • Patterns and Mechanisms of the Forest Carbon Cycle 

      Gower, Stith T. (Annual Reviews Energy and Environment, 2003)
      Forests are an important source for ?ber and fuel for humans and contain the majority of the total terrestrial carbon (C). The amount of C stored in the vegetation and soil are strongly in?uenced by environmental constraints ...
    • Reimplementation of the BIOME-BGC model to simulate successional change 

      Thornton, Peter E.; Ahl, Douglas E.; Gower, Stith T.; Bond-Lamberty, Ben (Heron Publishing, 2005)
      Biogeochemical process models are increasingly employed to simulate current and future forest dynamics, but most simulate only a single canopy type. This limitation means that mixed stands, canopy succession and understory ...
    • Scaling Gross Primary Production (GPP) over boreal and deciduous forest landscapes in support of MODIS GPP product validation 

      Munger, J. William; Dunn, Allison L.; Urbanski, Shawn; Wofsy, Steven C.; Running, Steven W.; Zhao, Maosheng; Gower, Stith T.; Cohen, Warren B.; Ritts, William D.; Turner, David P. (Elsevier, 2003-06-18)
      The Moderate Resolution Imaging Radiometer (MODIS) is the primary instrument in the NASA Earth Observing System for monitoring the seasonality of global terrestrial vegetation. Estimates of 8-day mean daily gross primary ...
    • Simulation of boreal black spruce chronosequences: Comparison to field measurements and model evaluation 

      Gower, Stith T.; Bond-Lamberty, Ben; McMillan, Andrew; Goulden, Michael L. (Journal of Geophysical Research, 2006-06-08)
      This study used the Biome Biogeochemical Cycles (Biome-BGC) process model to simulate boreal forest dynamics, compared the results with a variety of measured carbon content and flux data from two boreal chronosequences in ...
