Dr. Gil Bohrer



Gil Bohrer received a PhD from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University, in 2007. He was a Harvard University Center for the Environment Fellow 2007-2008. He is a professor at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering at the Ohio State University since 2008. Bohrer’s research centers on understanding the role and dynamics of the ecosystem in atmospheric exchange, at the resolution of individual plants. He developed a canopy large eddy simulation to study the role of canopy structure in transport and surface uptake of seed, pollen and atmospheric pollutants. He developed a plant hydrodynamic model to study the effects of the hydraulic traits and behavior of trees on transpiration dynamics during water stress. He is one of the national Ameriflux core site PIs, and contributes long-term observations of ecosystem carbon and methane fluxes from forest and wetland sites. His research in wetlands is combining observations and modeling to identify the role of small-scale within-wetland ecological and hydrological heterogeneity in regulating the fluxes of methane and CO2.
