Biogeochemical Pathways

Research in the LM documents how long-term biogeochemical dynamics respond to pulse and press disturbances, the effects of hurricane and the effects of more extreme wetting and drying events on forest biogeochemistry.

We will continue to document how long-term biogeochemical dynamics (e.g., litterfall mass, stream chemistry, trace gas flux) respond to pulse and press disturbances. We will continue the Canopy TrimmingExperiment (field simulation of hurricane effects) and begin a Throughfall Manipulation Experiment, which will help us understand the effects of more extreme wetting and drying events on forest biogeochemistry.
