H147:
Wetland and Floodplain/Riparian Zone Effects on Water Quality, Quantity, and Ecology in Downstream Waters





Session ID#: 25658

Session Description:
Wetlands and river corridors, including floodplain/riparian zones, have significant effects on watershed hydrology, biogeochemical cycling, and ecology. These ecosystems capture and transform nutrients and other contaminants, store water to mitigate downgradient peak hydrologic flows, and serve as habitat for the movement of species throughout landscapes. This session brings together researchers with diverse approaches to quantifying the downstream effects of these ecosystems on water quality, quantity, and ecological functions. The scope of this session includes both natural and constructed wetlands and floodplain/riparian zones, so as to better characterize the role of targeted ecosystem conservation and/or restoration at large spatial scales and thus guide land use resource management decisions. We welcome process-level experimental studies at the patch scale and remote sensing, modeling, and spatial analyses at watershed scale. We especially welcome contributions that span these scales and that use emerging process-level understanding to address knowledge gaps and data needs of larger-scale studies.
