biogeochemical cycles field observation vegetation structure forest ecosystems TLS terrestrial ecosystems TLS
At Q-ForestLab, we study the dynamics, biogeochemistry and water cycling in terrestrial ecosystems. Q-ForestLab has a strong focus on forest ecosystems, but a broad interest in all types of terrestrial ecosystems, including tropical and temperate forests, drylands, peatlands and urban ecosystems. Our strength lies in a unique combination of methodologies, ranging from empirical in-situ observations and experiments, over 3D forest reconstructions, to process-based modelling and remote sensing.
