The Oak Ridge nationwide Laboratory's Environmental Sciences department initiated the Walker department Watershed undertaking at the Oak Ridge Reservation in east Tennessee in 1967, with the aid of the U. S. division of Energy's workplace of overall healthiness and Environmental examine (DOE/OHER), to quantify land-water interactions in a forested panorama. It was once designed to target 3 significant targets: (1) to advance baseline info on unpolluted ecosystems, (2) to give a contribution to our wisdom of biking and lack of chemical parts in ordinary ecosystems, and (3) to supply the knowledge useful for the development of mathe­ matical simulation versions for predicting the results of man's actions on forested landscapes. In 1969, the foreign organic Program's jap Deciduous woodland Biome venture used to be initiated, and Walker department Watershed was once selected as among the many websites for extensive study on nutrient biking and organic productiveness. This paintings used to be supported by way of the nationwide technology beginning (NSF). Over the following four years, in depth process-level examine on basic productiveness, decomposition, and belowground organic methods was once coupled with ongoing DOE-supported paintings at the characterization of simple geology and hydrological cycles at the watershed. In 1974, the NSF's RANN software (Research utilized to nationwide wishes) started paintings on hint point biking on Walker department Wa­ tershed end result of the wide facts base being constructed below either DOE and NSF support.

The vertical distribution of normalized dry leaf weight per unit of surface area is shown in Fig. 9 for three common tree species in this forest. 7. Vertical distribution of average leaf area density in an east Tennessee deciduous forest. Horizontal bars represent ± 1 SE. The right-hand ordinate represents height in the forest in the nondimensional form: fI = 1 - HlfJ, where H = height in the forest and H = maximum forest tree height.

General view of the east Tennessee deciduous forest at the Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Laboratory's Walker Branch Watershed site in winter. The decreasing density of woody biomass with depth to a relatively open trunk space is indicative of the leaf distribution in the canopy during the growing season. Also visible is the 33-m tower that serves as a tail spar supporting pairs of cables at seven levels within and one level above the canopy. Instrumented trams (five are clearly visible) traverse these cables to obtain horizontally and vertically replicated measurements of incoming and outgoing fluxes of solar, photosynthetically active, and all-wave radiation.
