The Vanmet Climate Station in the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest. This is one of the Andrews' long-term climate stations that is providing critical information for understanding the response of landscape-scale temperature patterns to local topography, elevation, vegetation cover and upper atmosphere windflow patterns.
Estimated spatial distribution across the H.J. Andrews LTER site of maximum temperature in December in response to a 2.5 degree C regional temperature increase and anticipated change in upper atmosphere airflow using elevation and local topography as explanatory variables. Intricate patterns of elevation and topographic position create steep response gradients across the landscape.
