A major challenge in ecosystem science is evaluating how legacies of disturbance interact to influence system sensitivity and/or resilience to novel rates of chronic climate and land use changes. The recent 2017 hurricane season affected several LTER sites, including the FCE, LUQ, and GCE sites. This workshop will review research findings to date on the impact and possible recovery trajectories for sites hit by these powerful storms (90 minutes). In addition, we will provide hands-on training in Google Earth Engine and R programming to measure long-term trends in forest extent and 3D structure changes to help connect field level measurements with landscape patterns caused by extreme events (90 minutes).
