Enroll now! We're going to head out into the woods each day and cover a variety of forest ecology related methods, including stand biomass measurements, spatial mapping with laser rangefinders, soil characterizations, explore an experimental planting of pine which has plantings from California, Colorado, and Alaska, measure canopy properties with quantum sensors, and do basic dendrochronology work (involving age-factor detrending and climate associations). The course is 2 credits and will take place from May 11-20.
