B52C:
Response of Terrestrial Ecosystems Biogeochemistry to Dynamic Hydrological and Climatic Drivers I


Session ID#: 8049

Session Description:
Hydrological and climatic conditions regulate the biogeochemical functioning of terrestrial ecosystems and their interactions with other compartments of the earth system- atmosphere, surface waters, and groundwater. Interactions include exchanges of carbon, nutrients and greenhouse gases, which in turn have profound implications for regional and global biogeochemical cycles, water and air quality, and climate change. This session will focus on interdisciplinary research that advances our mechanistic understanding of the biogeochemistry of terrestrial ecosystems in response to dynamic hydrologic and climatic drivers, e.g., flooding events, water table fluctuations and freeze thaw cycles. The session will facilitate in-depth exchanges of concepts, data, measurement techniques, and modelling approaches to represent soil respiration in Earth System Models. We invite biogeochemists, climatologists, ecologists, hydrologists, and system modellers to present results that provide insight into how terrestrial ecosystems respond to changes in hydrological and climatic conditions and water availability.
