Meng recently defended his PhD at UC Irvine, having worked on various applications of GRACE data for understanding drought and vegetation drought response. He has been spending time with the group virtually and it is a delight to have him join officially. Welcome, Meng!

Xiangtao Xu (Cornell)'s mammoth paper comparing VOD and hydraulics-enabled ED2 simulations in the Amazon is now published at New Phytologist. Alex is the second author. It has some surprising messages about the large contributions of dew to VOD variations. Be sure also to check out Cynthia Gerlein-Safdi (LBNL)'s very clearly written commentary on the article (and microwave remote sensing of vegetation more generally) here.
