Making sense of soil organic matter: barriers and opportunities for cross-site synthesis

Feedback form is now closed.
Synthesizing data across environmental gradients is essential for improving our understanding of soil organic matter (SOM) dynamics and their corresponding representation in land models. However, the use of varied collection methods, analytical techniques, and data management practices present significant structural challenges to data synthesis efforts. During this workshop, the organizers will present and discuss details of their approach to a preliminary effort synthesizing cross-site soil data and the biogeochemical models that these data are intended to support. The workshop will feature a facilitated discussion of essential soil measurements for SOM studies and data management best practices to better support future syntheses.
