In this workshop, we will discuss two topics to improve methodology for studying climate change across sites: 1) determining the appropriate scale for manipulative climate change experiments, 2) quantifying the magnitude of climate change experienced by different areas of a landscape. At what scale should we manipulate temperature and precipitation to simulate climate change? Can we standardize our decision-making process? Many LTER sites feature fine-scale heterogeneity in topography, vegetation, soils, and hydrology. It is crucial to take this heterogeneity into account and discuss and standardize the quantification of microclimates across the landscape both in and out of manipulative experiments.
