  1. Abstract
    Airborne remote sensing data were acquired specifically for the EPSCoR NH Ecosystems and Society project to provide vegetation biometric and land surface optical properties at the landscape-scale. Data were acquired for targeted field sites that include the Lamprey River Watershed, the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest and the Bartlett Experimental Forest, where soil and aquatic sensors are deployed and intensive field sample plots have been established to measure a range of vegetation and land surface properties. Two image data collection campaigns were deployed—one in summer (August 2012) to capture peak growing season conditions in the state, and one in winterMore>>

    A canopy nitrogen map was created for the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest and watersheds using airborne imaging spectrometer data collected by SpecTIR LLC (Reno, NV) on August 7, 2012, and associated field data. Leaf samples collected in the field were analyzed for nitrogen concentration, scaled to plot (whole canopy) level, and related to airborne imaging spectrometer reflectance data using partial least squares regression modeling to derive spatially explicit estimates of canopy nitrogen concentration (mass-based) for the spatial extent of the airborne imagery.

    Climate models for the northeastern United States (U.S.) over the next century predict an increase in air temperature between 2.8 and 4.3 °C and a decrease in the average number of days per year when a snowpack will cover the forest floor (Hayhoe et al. 2007, 2008; Campbell et al. 2010). Studies of forest dynamics in seasonally snow-covered ecosystems have been primarily conducted during the growing season, when most biological activity occurs. However, in recent years considerable progress has been made in our understanding of how winter climate change influences dynamics in these forests. The snowpack insulates soil fromMore>>
  5. Abstract
    Hubbard Brook weather notes (aka field notes) are daily weather observations by technicians at Hubbard Brook – a record that began in the mid-1970s, and continues today. Weekend weather notes are included, and are observations from their nearby homes in Thornton, Campton or Plymouth NH. These notes capture subtle details in weather that are not recorded by sensors at Hubbard Brook. These may include, but are not limited to, thunderstorms, frontal passages, named storms (i.e. Hurricanes, Tropical storms), fog, ground surface frost, precipitation type, and cloud types. In this data package, the weather notes from 1990-2019 have been scannedMore>>
