TRACE is the first-ever warming experiment to be conducted in a tropical forest. Our goal is to assess the effects of increased temperatures on tropical forest ecosystems.
The warming experiment officially started on September 28, 2016. After 1 year of warming 4degC above ambient temperatures, the warming experiment went through reconstruction due to the passing of Hurricanes Irma and Maria through Puerto Rico in September 2017.
We started the warming treatment again on September 26, 2018! Stay tuned for more updates!
