Biomes in the Balance The American Southwest region is as ecologically diverse as it is vast and researchers have been studying carbon cycling and storage in the region. Utilizing MODIS and Landsat imagery, researchers set up a network of flux towers in different biomes and across varying elevations. The flux towers measures a range of data, like carbon dioxide in the air, precipitation, temperature, and energy exchange. The information gathered from the towers and other in-situ information will go a long way toward helping scientists understand just how much carbon similar biomes can absorb, both locally and globally.
