The Relationship between Soil Moisture and Tree Productivity in Northern Minnesota I am looking at the impacts of climate change and water availability on forest productivity in the Marcell Experimental Forest in northern Minnesota. Using historical data, I will model past and future effects of available water on forests and use these predictions to recommend management strategies for forest planners working in similar ecosystems.
