Heat waves associated with anthropogenic climate change have become increasingly frequent and intense, with adverse effects documented for different ecosystems. Heat waves are projected to continue to increase in frequency, duration, and strength in coming decades. The diverse ecosystems represented across the LTER Network, and the long-term datasets associated with each, offer a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the nature of heat wave responses and impacts in very different ecological regimes, at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Organism responses can include range shifts, physiological, genetic, and/or behavioral adaptation, and mortality. Heat waves can also have related impacts, including drought and fires in terrestrial ecosystems, and nutrient effects in marine ecosystems. This workshop seeks to bring together heat wave-related research from both marine and terrestrial sites to explore opportunities for greater understanding, synthesis, and predictive capacity.
