Abstract

Tropical montane cloud forest ecosystems are sensitive to the processes that modulate orographic cloud base height. Impact of land use on cloud base height in the Monteverde region in Northern Costa Rica is examined using field observations and numerical modeling. Initial analyses show that lowland deforestation leads to upward migration of orographic cloud base.
