General Academic & Research Interests

Harry McCaughey has held a cross-appointment in the School of Environmental Studies since July 2000. While associated with the School, Harry has also acted as Undergraduate Academic Advisor to Environmental Studies-Earth System Science students.

His research in boundary layer climatology in the past six years has focused on forest-atmosphere interactions (water, energy and carbon fluxes) within four projects. He completed a long-term energy balance study at Gunnarsholt, Iceland on a hybrid poplar plantation. He was a Principal Investigator in the Fluxnet-Canada Research Network (FCRN) (2002-07) and was associated with the Groundhog River Flux Station in Ontario and the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites (BERMS) Flux Station in Saskatchewan. He is a Principal Investigator for the follow-on to the FCRN, the Canadian Carbon Program, recently funded for the period 2007-2010 by the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS). He was a co-investigator in the Canadian Climate Research Network, Land Surface Processes Group (the CLASS Project). He was a Principal Investigator in the BERMS program before its incorporation into the FCRN in 2002.

Areas of potential or present thesis/project supervision:

Boreal ecosystems; climate modeling; biosphere/atmosphere interactions; microclimatology; climate change; instrumentation and data management; hydroclimatology, carbon exchange in forest ecosystems.
