We request funds to conduct a meeting at Harvard Forest in April, 2010. The meeting will provide the opportunity for further discussion, synthesis of ideas and LTER data, and the preparation of two manuscripts that follow from our 2009 ASM working group “Invertebrate impacts to ecosystem services under climate change”. The proposed meeting will be… Read more »
Cross site investigation using LTER Data.
The goal of this working group is to conduct a comparative analysis of and publish a paper on the hydrologic effects of ecosystem responses to climate change and land use change at LTER sites. Climate change and land use change are expected to have large effects on ecosystem water use and water yield, but despite… Read more »
Due to the unique nature of the LTER network, robust, transparent, long–term data sets from agriculture forestry and other vital terrestrial ecosystems are available, that quantify C sequestration and GHG mitigation, resulting from management practice alteration and adaptation to climate, and land–use change. There is great potential for LTER data to be utilized for environmental,… Read more »
To provide a consistent interactive mapping interface for LTER site information through an Internet web mapping application and allow users to visualize, search, download, and explore site information along with spatial and tabular data at both the network and site levels.
We propose to hold a workshop to explore challenges, opportunities, and potential outcomes of engaging the humanities and arts in consideration of future scenarios of landscape change in the face of climate change, land use, and human population growth.
We request funding to complete a peer-reviewed manuscript establishing a framework for successful graduate student cross-site socio-ecological research. This manuscript will build upon ideas generated at the LTER 2009 All Scientists Meeting in Estes Park, CO.
We propose two workshops to synthesize data from four coastal LTER sites (PIE, VCR, GCE, FCE) and from four non-LTER sites with the goal of developing a proposal to validate the Morris et al. (2002) model describing tidal marsh response to sea level rise.
MIRADA-LTERS is an NSF-funded cross-site comparative microbial inventory project that seeks to document, describe and discover baseline and novel diversity in the bacterial, archaeal and eukaryal domains of life across 13 of the aquatic LTER sites. We request funds to bring 10 data managers/collaborators together to attend a 2 day workshop in Woods Hole sometime… Read more »
I would like to propose a 2-day meeting in 2010 bringing together scientists from any and all LTER sites interested in comparative soil organic matter analysis. One day would be devoted entirely to planning cross-site comparative analyses and potential publications, and the other day would be devoted to discussions of the various tools and techniques… Read more »
A follow up workshop for a synthesis and modeling paper that builds on a workshop held at the LTER ASM 2009 meeting in Estes Park, CO (“Quantifying carbon and nutrient transformations in aquatic ecosystems at regional to continental scales in response to environmental change”).
