Terrestrial-aquatic linkages in the context of land use/cover change: connections between watershed processes and stream physical and biogeochemical processes





Session ID#: 26299

Session Description:
Land use/land cover change (LULC) strongly influences biogeochemical and physical processes in both aquatic and terrestrial systems. The effects of these modifications are widespread and pervasive, and are projected to increase due to growing agricultural and urban demands. The effects of LULC on aquatic systems are modified as they propagate through terrestrial systems, making it difficult to generate process-based understanding of the impact of LULC’s on aquatic biogeochemical and physical processes, or disentangle the interactions of multiple LULC’s. This session seeks to provide a forum for research that explicitly explores the terrestrial-aquatic linkages between LULC and the biogeochemical and physical functioning of stream systems. We particularly encourage studies that engage the entire continuum from terrestrial modification to the resulting aquatic impacts through empirical observations or process-based modeling. Studies that address distinct types of LULC (e.g. restoration, land management, urban development) across all spatiotemporal scales are encouraged.
