Dataset Overview

Investigate the effects of air quality, especially acid deposition, on microbial ecosystems.

See Full Dataset Documentation


Specific objectives include assessing the diversity and community structure of soil bacteria (nitrifiers and methanotrophs) in different acid depostion environments; develop a biomolecular method for determining ecosystem acid stress; and validate the PnET-BGC forest-soil-water model on field, GIS and remote sensing data then regionally apply the model.
