The AGU fall meeting is accepting abstracts for the session “B025: Ecological Disturbance: observing and predicting the impacts of landscape disturbance.”
Abstract Deadline is August 6, abstracts can be submitted here.
Description: Ecological disturbance is a fundamental driver of terrestrial carbon cycle dynamics. Drought, rising temperatures and historical land use have promoted widespread forest die-off, insect infestations and catastrophic wildfire. With the potential for more frequent disturbances or more widespread disturbances in the future, observational, experimental and modeling studies are needed to understand future changes in the carbon cycle. This session focuses on observational and modeling studies into the effects of ecological disturbance on terrestrial ecosystem carbon balance and ways to understand non-equilibrium conditions.
