Project Number: 3611-21000-024-04-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 12, 2007
End Date: Sep 11, 2012
The objective of this cooperative project is to maintain a FACE research site for investigating the effects of global change, including increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and ozone, on soybean and corn.
FACE technology is used to elevate and control levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide ozone. Canopy energy balance technologies are used to measure evapotranspiration and canopy temperature, capacitance probes and soil access tubes are used to measure soil moisture profiles, and a fully instrumented weather station monitors all aspects of weather at the research site.
