This is part 1 of a 2-part (180-minute) session. Storage of organic matter in ecosystems provides a critical climate-regulating service. Observations from myriad ecosystems suggest that the drivers of organic matter dynamics and the magnitudes of pools and fluxes are changing. The LTER network is poised to provide answers to questions of critical relevance to society regarding patterns in organic matter storage. Answers to such questions require analyses of long-term trends in pools and fluxes, spatial distribution, and the processes contributing to preservation, transformation, and transport of organic matter. We propose to assemble descriptions of organic matter pools, processes, and fluxes across the LTER network. We will summarize the state of organic matter research in the network, i
