The Jackson lab examines the different ways that people affect the Earth. Our projects combine basic science and policy solutions to issues such as climate change, energy extraction, and land use. We're currently examining the effects of climate change and droughts on forest mortality and grassland ecosystems. We are also working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Global Carbon Project (, which Rob chairs, including establishing a global network of methane tower measurements at more than 50 sites worldwide and measuring and reducing methane emissions from oil and gas wells, city streets, and homes and buildings.
