RC CZO wants to be a community resource and a magnet for carbon cycling and global climate modeling

  • The RC CZO will continue to be a resource to existing RCEW researchers and new collaborators (100+ visitors/yr).
  • The RC CZO will produce one of the largest soil C datasets across a diverse landscape that will be explicitly linked to environmental variables that can be used to develop and test regional and global carbon models.
  • Findings from the RC CZO will improve our understanding of how land management changes such as prescribed fire will alter soil properties and carbon inputs and thus stability of SOC at the landscape level.
  • The proposed intermediate scale research at the RC CZO will improve spatial estimates of net carbon fluxes and provide context for process-oriented research.
  • The RC CZO will leverage temporally and spatially extensive hydrologic data at the RCEW to provide a unique research focus on SC processes.
  • Evaluation of simulations at the intermediate scale will identify areas of weakness in process representation and hence point to critical research needs.
