Title: Characterizing long-term pulse dynamics among ecosystems
Workshop 22A-01: Introduction & Overview
Organizers: John Kominoski, Jennifer Rudgers, Kristofer Hall
Understanding pulse dynamics is important to improving prediction in ecology. Climate change is altering hydrologic regimes, but the degree to which ecological responses are coupled to hydrologic pulses likely varies among ecosystems. A pulse is an abrupt change in system variables. Pulses may be isolated, when caused by single disturbances, or recur over variable time scales, including daily to seasonal.
Workshop 1: Learning How to Measure Time-Series Pulses
This first of two workshops will introduce a synthetic approach to cross-site comparisons. We will orient participants to three time-series analyses, and provide R scripts, example dataset, and recorded tutorials to use prior to the second workshop.
Workshop 2: Sharing Pulse Findings
This second workshop will focus on the results of the ‘data jam’, where individuals share their findings from the shared tutorials to explore their long-term data. The workshop will conclude with next steps for integration of new findings from de novo time-series analyses of long-term data to be presented, compared, and discussed at the LTER ASM.
