Posted: March 11, 2009

Professor Monique Leclerc, of the University of Georgia's Crop and Soil Sciences Department, has been named a State of Georgia Regents' Professor. Regents' Professors are faculty members whose scholarship or creative activity is recognized both nationally and internationally as innovative and pace-setting. Regents' Professors receive a permanent increase in salary and a yearly academic support account for the duration of the professorship. Professor Leclerc is an investigator in DOE's terrestrial carbon program, studying the role of vegetation-atmosphere exchange of gases such as carbon dioxide, water, and sulfur dioxide in climate change. This exchange of gases is regulated by a number of factors, including source-sink strengths of those gases and the structure of the turbulent flow within the vegetation canopy.
