264 Symposium--Impacts of Bioenergy Crops on Water Quantity and Quality: I

Oral Session
S01 Soil Physics Bioenergy crops may have potential to improve energy sustainability and security while helping to mitigate climate change, but land conversion to bioenergy crops would also have hydrologic impacts, both positive and negative. The potential impacts of bioenergy crops on water quantity and quality is thus a significant and active research area across many scientific disciplines. This symposium will highlight current research in soil science and related disciplines addressing the water-bioenergy nexus.
