About Andy VanLoocke

The primary goal of my research program is to develop and refine estimates of the impacts of ongoing and future land use change and global change on agro-ecosystem processes and services. Projects are currently under development that will apply a combination of field-based measurements with agro-ecosystem models to assess 1) the water use and water use efficiency of sorghum, a potential bioenergy feedstock 2) the impacts of perennial bioenergy feedstock production on sloping terrain 3) the implications of introducing novel, highly productive lines of Switchgrass on agro-ecosystem services 4) interactions of large-scale wind energy operations with surrounding agricultural fields 5) the impacts of global change (increasing drought frequency, atmospheric CO2 and temperature) on the productivity and biogeochemistry of the corn-soybean agro-ecosystem.
