Data-Model Needs for Belowground Ecology Workshop Report

 

This one-day workshop sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Terrestrial Ecosystem Science Program brought together experimental and modeling representatives from four DOE 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 Biological and Environmental Research Program-funded projects.
