Prof. Paul Stoy, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences (LRES), Montana State University, USA

Research Interests:

  • Biosphere – atmosphere exchange of mass and energy with an emphasis on modeling long-term (inter-annual) CO2 and H2O flux at the plot, regional and global scale, and with respect to land use change
  • Collaboration with the international terrestrial carbon cycle community (FLUXNET).
  • Eddy covariance, sap flow, respiration chamber and flux-gradient methodologies.
  • Wavelet techniques and information theory
