Research in boreal systems continued in the period with the micrometeorological flux measurement s in northern Manitoba in BOREAS. Another ongoing project involves observations of the components of the radiation budget and characteristics of turbulent exchange at the forest-atmosphere interface at a research deciduous forest in central Massachusetts, where we collaborate with researchers from Harvard University. At the Harvard Forest field site, measurements have been conducted nearly continuously since August We have studied the role of weather on the curing of concrete.
A collaborative study with the NY Department of Transportation and the National Weather Service to extract more useful information from newly-emerging roadside weather stations is just beginning. The projects have provided the impetus for many research papers. We would like to ask you for a moment of your time to fill in a short questionnaire, at the end of your visit. If you decide to participate, a new browser tab will open so you can complete the survey after you have completed your visit to this website. Thanks in advance for your time. Skip to content.

First Known Use of micrometeorology , in the meaning defined above. The presented model is a sound and reliable basis for the calculation of the different components of microweather inside a crop. The Air in Valleys Profiles within a Plant Cover It presents, with selected examples, the basics of micrometeorology applied to disciplines such as biometeorology, agrometeorology, hydrometeorology, technical meteorology, environmental meteorology, and biogeoscience.
