214 Cycles Exchanges of Water, Energy, and Chemicals Across Scales

Oral Session
S01 Soil Physics

Cycles of water, energy, and chemicals are rarely, if ever, independent each cycle is linked to others and component cycles cannot be correctly interpreted without considering this joint influence. Such a connection is most often recognized in terms of how the hydrologic cycle controls other cycles, but other important connections can and do exist. This session will focus on connecting cycles of water, energy, and/or chemicals at the local (e.g. field or plot) scale within the continuum from the water table, through the vadose zone, to the lower atmosphere.
