... Several projects focus on quantitative measurements of ecosystem carbon fluxes, for timescales spanning from instantaneous to decadal and spatial scales from meters to thousands of kilometers, combining physical, chemical, and biological methods. His awards include American Geophysical Union's McIlwane prize and NASA's Distinguished Public Service Medal.
