Dr. Chi Chen conducts research on the broad area of monitoring and modeling vegetation and ecosystem dynamics. His work combines remote sensing, ground-based observations, and earth system models to better comprehend the ways in which the terrestrial biosphere interacts with global changes. A key focus is to examine the effects of natural and human-caused drivers of ecosystem dynamics and their climate feedbacks.
