Soil warming has the potential to alter both soil and plant processes that affect carbon storage in forest ecosystems. We have quantified these effects in a large, long-term (7-y) soil-warming study in a deciduous forest in New England. Soil warming has resulted in carbon losses from the soil and stimulated carbon gains in the woody tissue of trees. The(More)

—Monitoring bridges with wireless sensor networks aids in detecting failures early, but faces power challenges in ensuring reasonable network lifetimes. Recharging select nodes with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) provides a solution that currently can recharge a single node. However, questions arise on the effectiveness of a limited recharging system, the(More)
