Pulse Dynamics Track-03: Characterizing long-term pulse dynamics among ecosystems: Synthesis & Product Development

Feedback form is now closed.
Understanding pulse dynamics is important to improving prediction in ecology. Climate change is altering hydrologic regimes, but the degree to which ecological responses are coupled to hydrologic pulses likely varies among ecosystems. A pulse is an abrupt change in system variables. Pulses may be isolated, when caused by single disturbances, or recur over variable time scales, including daily to seasonal.

This third and final workshop will begin with more lightning talks of de novo time-series analyses of long-term data from the ‘data jam’ breakouts from the second workshop. Following these presentations, we will have a discussion of product development opportunities that consider best-practice analytical approaches to long-term data, integration of long-term data from multiple networks within and outside the US LTER, and how to compare long-term data from different temporal and spatial scales. Finally, this workshop will end with six strategic breakout groups working on (i) troubleshooting data generated from the three-day workshop, (ii) site and climate data, (iii) pulse metrics and methods, (iv) manuscript conceptual development, (v) figures & cross-site results, and (vi) synthesis proposal development.
