Wetlands are an important component of the New England landscape, the Harvard Forest has its share; about 25% of the landscape is classified wetland or very poorly drained. Read how the The AmeriFlux instrument loaner program was used for a new pilot study at Harvard Forest.
Cities have a complex mix of land uses, from commercial districts with dining and shops to residential neighborhoods linked by travel corridors, as well as industrial areas such as ports and factories. All of these different land uses lead to a diversity of urban sources that emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and greenhouse gasses such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). Direct measurements and analysis of these species over time helps us understand human interactions with climate and air pollution.
