[1] Our current understanding of terrestrial carbon processes is represented in various models used to integrate and scale measurements of CO 2 exchange from remote sensing and other spatiotemporal data. Yet assessments are rarely conducted to determine how well models simulate carbon processes across vegetation types and environmental conditions. Using(More)
A new rhodamine-based chemosensor (L1) was synthesized, and it exhibits high sensitivity and selectivity for the copper cation over other commonly coexistent metal ions in aqueous solution. Upon the addition of Cu(2+), the spirolactam ring of L1 was opened and a 1 : 1 metal-ligand complex was formed. Fluorescent imaging of Cu(2+) in living cells is also(More)
A new fluorescent sensor L1 based on coumarin was synthesized. It shows high sensitivity and selectivity toward Cu(2+) in aqueous solution. The complexation mode and corresponding quenching mechanism were elucidated by ESI-MS and DFT calculations. In addition, biological imaging studies have demonstrated that L1 can detect Cu(2+) in living cells.
A symmetric ligand 2, 6-di ((phenazonyl-4-imino)methyl)-4-methylphenol (Dpmp) and its cobalt dinuclear complex (Co2(Dpmp)2(NO3)2(H2O)2·NO3·EtOH, (1) and zinc mononuclear complex Zn(Dpmp)(NO3)2, (2) have been prepared. The crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The biological activity has been evaluated by examining their(More)
A new fluorescent probe 1, N-(Rhodamine-6G)lactam-hydrazinecarbothioamide, was synthesized as a fluorescent and colorimetric chemodosimeter in aqueous solution for Cu(2+). Following Cu(2+)-promoted ring opening, redox and hydrolysis reactions, comparable amplifications of absorption and fluorescence signals were observed upon addition of Cu(2+); this(More)
We describe a new remote sensing system called the Short Wave Aerostat-Mounted Imager (SWAMI). The SWAMI is designed to acquire co-located video imagery and hyperspectral data to study basic remote sensing questions and to link landscape level trace gas fluxes with spatially and temporally appropriate spectral observations. The SWAMI can fly at altitudes up(More)
Land use activities can have a major impact on the temporal trends and spatial patterns of regional land-atmosphere exchange of carbon. Federal lands generally have substantially different land management strategies from surrounding areas, and the carbon consequences have rarely been quantified and assessed. Using the Fort Benning Installation as a case(More)
BACKGROUND Tillage practices greatly affect carbon (C) stocks in agricultural soils. Quantification of the impacts of tillage on C stocks at a regional scale has been challenging because of the spatial heterogeneity of soil, climate, and management conditions. We evaluated the effects of tillage management on the dynamics of soil organic carbon (SOC) in(More)
Quantifying the spatial and temporal dynamics of carbon stocks in terrestrial ecosystems and carbon fluxes between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere is critical to our understanding of regional patterns of carbon budgets. Here we use the General Ensemble biogeochemical Modeling System to simulate the terrestrial ecosystem carbon dynamics in the(More)
