Jeffrey Q. Chambers is a Faculty Scientist in the Climate Sciences Department at Berkeley Lab, and an Associate Professor in the Geography Department, University of California, Berkeley. His research questions are focused on terrestrial ecosystem ecology, tropical forests and climate change, disturbance and recovery processes, vegetation dynamics, and land-atmosphere interactions. Methods employed to address these questions include ecological and physiological field measurements, remote sensing image analysis, and simulation modeling to codify knowledge and develop regional projections. Much of this work has taken place in Amazon forests, where he has 20 years of research experience.
