Wade’s graduation potluck party

Congratulations Dr. Wade Ross! It’s celebration time after years of hard work of research on DayCent climate change modeling and Random Forest modeling of soil carbon and net primary productivity. Some photos from our potluck party with the lab team. Wade graduated with the Ph.D. dissertation “A region-wide analysis of terrestrial carbon cycling across the Land of the Pines” (2017).

Ploy’s visit to Gainesville and lab group

Ploy (Pasicha Chaikaew), who graduated with a Ph.D. from UF in 2014, was visiting our lab team in Gainesville (May 8, 2017). She came a long way from Bangkok, Thailand where she works as faculty member in the Department of Environmental Science, Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University.

 

Terrestrial Carbon (TerraC) Information System

TerraC is dedicated to: (i) advance terrestrial carbon science through sharing of carbon and environmental data; (ii) facilitate environmental synthesis; and (iii) enhance collaboration among researchers, scientists, and extension specialists through shared resources. TerraC offers tools to upload, store, manage, query, analyze, and download data characterizing terrestrial carbon dynamics from various sources, including soils, plants/biomass, atmosphere, water, and whole ecosystems. It was developed by Dr. Grunwald’s research team.
