Integration of Ecosystem Research Infrastructures for Multi-Scale Analysis

Panel Format Session: This session has been selected by the Program Committee to be an official panel. Panelists will be invited authors designated by the conveners. Learn more

Session ID#: 25944

Session Description:
Understanding terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems requires many types of observations. Understanding the effects of multiple drivers (climate, disturbance, management) also requires long time-series of integrated and harmonized datasets, across scales. New Research Infrastructures (RIs; i.e., facilities, experiments, and networks) have emerged to meet these needs, each focused on specific areas and/or science disciplines. Environmental sciences are now beginning to link scales, from microbe to biome, and to systematically compare processes spanning continents. This presents significant technical, scientific, and cultural challenges on how to integrate data and facilities across RIs. This session features a poster session to introduce RIs and their possible uses, and a panel discussion by scientists who use and those who develop RIs. We plan to stimulate discussion of: (i) the research needs of users and stakeholders, (ii) Synergies/barriers among RIs (iii) Physical/data Interoperability and access and (iii) research opportunities. We invite abstracts for posters and panelists.
