Microclimate sensor array

Andrew Fricker (a postdoctoral researcher) by an experimental garden and microclimate sensor array installed at the Teakettle Experimental Forest in the Sierra National Forest. We have been monitoring microclimate using weather stations and surface temperature sensors (data loggers are protected inside the L-shaped PVC pipes) along with oak and pine seedling establishment in 24 experimental gardens to study the potential of forest microclimates to mitigate the impacts of regional climate change on tree species in California.
