Dr. Carlson is interested in remote measurement of regional-scale soil moisture and other boundary layer and surface parameters using satellites. His interests also extend to the modeling of plants and the way they control transpiration, and in urbanization/deforestation as viewed by satellite. He has written a book entitled "Mid Latitude Weather Systems" which is to be republished by the AMS (previously published by Routledge). The following represent a selection of recent journal articles out of a total of about 80.
Research InterestsSatellite remote sensing applications to regional planning, modeling of evapotranspiration over plant canopies, land surface processes.
Bioclimatology, boundary layer meteorology, and remote sensing.
