The response of critical zone processes to land-cover change (Part 2)

This workshop will explore how land-cover change affects ecosystem processes that span the top of the canopy to groundwater, a region known as the ‘critical zone’. We define land-cover change as a shift in the dominant vegetation cover, including conversion of forests, grasslands, and wetlands to agricultural or timber production and/or the encroachment of more drought-tolerant vegetation species. The LTER Network provides an opportunity for cross-site synthesis of critical zone research that will inform how ecosystems may respond to hydro-bio-geochemical change over decades to centuries. Participants in this workshop will identify the major themes emerging from critical zone research at LTER sites as it relates to changing land-cover. The workshop will include lightning talks from invited speakers, small group breakout discussions, large group synthesis, and a short survey to identify next steps for continued collaboration.
