ORNL Terrestrial Ecosystem Science Scientific Focus Area
The TES SFA supports research to understand and predict the global terrestrial ecosystem forcing of the earth’s climate, and to assess vulnerability of terrestrial ecological systems to projected changes in climate and atmospheric composition. The research is focused on how terrestrial ecosystems affect atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gases and how the ecosystem processes responsible for these effects interact with climate and with anthropogenic forcing factors.
SPRUCE is one component of the ORNL TES SFA.
