we would like to draw your attention to the upcoming session at EGU 2020 on "Experimental ecosystem development research and ecological model systems". The session description can be found here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2020/session/35084. Abstract submission is possible until 15 January 2020.
This session aims at creating an overview on experimental ecosystem development research infrastructures and natural model systems. Besides insights into flagship sites this session invites interdisciplinary contributions dealing with (1) exemplary concepts of experimental ecosystem infrastructures and landscape observatories in Critical Zone research, (2) concepts for monitoring Critical Zone processes in experimental landscape observatories, (3) results of experiments and monitoring studies, as well as (4) modelling approaches for explaining process linking Critical zone and ecosystem processes in responses to global changes.
This session is the follow-up session of the meeting on "large-scale ecosystem experiments" at the previous EGU General Assembly 2019. With this new session we hope to establish a platform for exchange of experiences with experimental ecosystem research and to promote a network of institutions dealing with large-scale experiments. Your contributions to this session would be, therefore, highly appreciated.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to other potentially interested colleagues.
In the name of all co-conveners I would like to wish a merry Christmas season and hope to see you in Vienna next year!
