carbon cycle

Parker, Stephen

Professor
Chemistry and Geochemistry
Montana Tech

I am part of a small but dedicated research collaboration investigating various aspects of riverine and groundwater biogeochemistry. The following are some of the current active areas of research:

Powell, Scott

Assistant Research Professor
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

My primary research interests are to quantify landscape patterns using a variety of tools including remote sensing, GIS, and field inventory and to understand both the drivers of observed changes as well as the ecosystem consequences. I am particularly interested in quantifying how forest disturbance dynamics are changing and interacting to influence ecosystem carbon cycling and feedbacks to climate change.

Watts, Jennifer

Assistant Professor
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University; Woods Hole Research Center

I study carbon cycle dynamics, surface hydrology, and changes in permafrost affected landscapes across Arctic-Boreal regions. My research interests include using satellite remote sensing data to inform terrestrial carbon (CO2, CH4) flux modeling, using information from eddy covariance to improve carbon emission models, and better understanding biogeophysical processes regulating greenhouse gas emissions in northern landscapes. When not in the office, I am usually somewhere in the mountains – backpacking, skiing, or mountain biking.
