Catchment Science – process understanding and societal benefits from long-term observation, research, and experimentation





Session ID#: 27149

Session Description:
Long-term research catchments are sentinel sites that have proved invaluable for detecting, documenting, and understanding environmental change. The small watershed approach fosters hydrological, biogeochemical, and ecological process understanding at a site, while a collective network of catchment observatories offers a broader context to synthesize understanding across a range of climate and geology. Also, experimental manipulations designed to assess the effects of land management and climate change are more readily interpreted in well-understood systems. Multi-catchment comparisons at various temporal and spatial scales provide information needed to manage ecosystems, and to inform hydrological or Earth systems models. In this session, we seek contributions from observatory, long-term, and experimental catchment studies that include analysis of processes and temporal trends. We especially encourage submissions that illustrate the societal relevance of catchment science.
