Turning over a new leaf: Local mountain climate is affected by leaf area ratio

A research group has found that sudden changes in the development of a nighttime cold-air pool over a small mountain basin in Japan are related to leaf expansion and leaf fall in mountain forests. The researchers concluded that leaf area index influences seasonal changes in cold-air pool formation. Future studies will likely assess the effects of seasonal forest changes in mountain areas on nocturnal climates of inland areas.A research group has found that sudden changes in the development of a nighttime cold-air pool over a small mountain basin in Japan are related to leaf expansion and leaf fall in mountain forests.
