Andrew Friedland

Professor Friedland

The Richard and Jane Pearl Professor in Environmental Studies

Andrew Friedland's research focuses on understanding the effects of atmospheric deposition of pollutants and biomass harvesting on elemental cycling processes in high-elevation forests of New England and New York. He considers many elements including carbon, trace elements such as lead, and major elements such as nitrogen and calcium. He also is examining issues related to personal choices, energy use and environmental impact.
