Soil Organic Matter Dynamics: A Cross-Ecosystem Approach
I would like to propose a 2-day meeting in 2010 bringing together scientists from any and all LTER sites interested in comparative soil organic matter analysis.
One day would be devoted entirely to planning cross-site comparative analyses and potential publications, and the other day would be devoted to discussions of the various tools and techniques that could and should be used for the questions posed.
1) The group planned comparative analyses on soils from the Harvard Forest DIRT plots that will result in a special issue of Biogeochemistry by 2013. (In Process).
2) Two papers are currently in preparation lead authors Heather Throop and Kim Townsend.
