Footprints: Biogeochemical and Biophysical Impacts of Managed Ecosystems


Possible Alternate Format: If this session is allocated an oral session, the convener can choose to have lightning style presentations that are quicker and more focused than a traditional session. Learn more


Session ID#: 26652

Session Description:
With increasing populations and higher demand for food, energy, and fiber, managed ecosystems such as croplands, grazing lands and forests play a crucial role in securing these resources, regulating the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and altering the water and energy cycles. This session welcomes submissions that examine the impact of changes in land use – land cover and/or changing management practices – on biogeochemistry (CO2, CH4, and N2O fluxes) and biophysics (water and energy fluxes) of managed systems in both disturbance and recovery phases, and feedbacks on the environment and climate. Submissions that investigate strategies to manage ecosystems sustainably and interactions between C, N, and water cycles are encouraged. We invite results on ground-based and remote sensing observations, as well as modeling studies at any spatial and temporal scale, to advance our understanding of future states of the Earth and to promote a sustainable future.
