Workshop date: May 8, 2014
Background: This one-day workshop brought together experimental and modeling representatives from four Department of Energy national laboratories. The group focused on identifying and characterizing critical experimental and observational datasets for testing and developing existing and future belowground-process models and land models; the limitations and needs for modeling belowground processes within ecosystem models; and key areas for leveraging current research activities across the national laboratories and BER-funded projects.
Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Terrestrial Ecosystem Science.
