Description of scientific projects
Dr. Xu's work at LANL has been focused on building statistical and process-based models to predict ecosystem dynamics under both short-term and long-term environmental changes. Specifically, he focus on a diverse research topics including 1) vegetation dynamics and its impact on hydrology ; 2) insect population dynamics (e.g., beetles and mosquitoes) that could leads to vegetation mortality and disease risks; 3) biogeochemical cycles; and 4) methods for improved understanding of model structure and behaviors.
