Flux Puppy – An open-source software application and portable system design for low-cost manual measurements of CO2 and H2O fluxes

Manual chamber-based measurements of CO2 (and H2O) fluxes are important for understanding ecosystem carbon metabolism. Small opaque chambers can be used to measure leaf, stem and soil respiration. Larger transparent chambers can be used to measure net ecosystem exchange of CO2, and small jars often serve this purpose for laboratory […]

Suggested Activities

Scoring The goal of this challenge is to encourage people to participate in diversity-related events and to actively think about and discuss how to create a more inclusive work environment in Ecoss. There are plenty of ways for your team to earn points (see below for suggested activities). Remember to […]

Ecoss Diversity Challenge

The goal of the Diversity Challenge is to encourage Ecoss members to actively participate in diversity-related events happening in our community by creating a little friendly competition. Below is a list of available activities with the amount of points that can be earned. This will be a team challenge, and […]

A Dynamic Landsat Derived Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) product for the conterminous United States

Satellite derived vegetation indices (VIs) are broadly used in ecological research, ecosystem modeling, and land surface monitoring. The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), perhaps the most utilized VI, has countless applications across ecology, forestry, agriculture, wildlife, biodiversity, and other disciplines. Calculating satellite derived NDVI is not always straight-forward, however, as […]

Field site in Antarctica with a crate in the foreground and steep mountains in background.


We study soil microbial communities in Antarctica, microbes in hot spring ecosystems in Tengchong, China, methane production at Axel Heiberg Island near Greenland as an analog for life on other planets, and the distribution of soil microbial communities across the arid Southwest.
