Last month, The New York Times published a cover story on climate change impacts to the nation's forest canopy. The long-term eddy-flux tower maintained at Harvard Forest by LTER PIs Steve Wofsy, Bill Munger, and REU students past and present, was featured in the article as one answer to the difficult task of carbon budgeting, "one of the biggest accounting problems of modern science." The reporter hailed the "meticulous measurements over the decades" at Harvard Forest as a way to quantify forest carbon in New England, calling the region "one of the most important for carbon storage on the planet."
