Scanning the Horizon of the LTER Network: Future Initiatives and Scientific Advances

Feedback form is now closed.
Grad students and post-docs are the backbone of science. LTER grad students and post-docs are uniquely suited to envision the future of science as we encompass a wide range of scientific disciplines and, as LTER network PI roles turnover in the coming decades, many of us will likely become leaders within the LTER network and our own respective fields.

The aim of this workshop is to for LTER grad students and post-docs to scan the horizon of the LTER Network and its representative scientific disciplines. By scanning the horizon, we will discuss how we envision future directives of the LTER network, such as new thematic elements, and how scientific theories will be advanced as LTER datasets lengthen. This workshop will begin with a presentation on the history of the LTER Network and how it got its start, given by Dr. Dan Childers (Director, CAP-LTER). We will then form break-out groups to discuss research areas we think will be important areas of discovery in the future.
