Hyporheic mesocosms: Conceptual design, and instrumentation – Evaluating performance of each column by using a conservative tracer (NaCl) and developing methods to study carbon biogeochemistry

Poster Number:  296 Presenter/Primary Author:  Satish Serchan Biogeochemical processes that occur in hyporheic zones (HZ) of forested headwater streams appear to control stream export of carbon from these watersheds.

Fire-mediated habitat use patterns of moose in boreal Alaska

Poster Number:  295 Presenter/Primary Author:  Casey Brown Wildfire is the most common ecological disturbance in the boreal forest and recent studies predict that climate change will increase the frequency, extent, and severity of fire in Interior Alaska.

Root and arbuscular mycorrhizal exudation under different global change scenarios

Poster Number:  294 Presenter/Primary Author:  Clare Kazanski In addition to their influences on plant growth, arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM) also add to soil carbon (C) through their own growth and turnover.

Luminous ID: Alpine plant recognition and field guide smartphone app developed for Niwot Ridge LTER

Poster Number:  292 Presenter/Primary Author:  Jane Smith Luminous ID is an alpine plant recognition and field guide smartphone app that was launched in May 2015 after a year-long collaborative project between Niwot Ridge LTER and the University of Colora

Marsh-atmosphere exchange of CO2 in a New England salt marsh

Poster Number:  289 Presenter/Primary Author:  Inke Forbrich We study marsh-atmosphere exchange of carbon dioxide in a high marsh dominated salt marsh (PIE LTER) using the eddy covariance technique since 2012.
