175 Quantifying and Predicting Soil Ecosystem Services for Water, Food, Energy and Environmental Security Poster (includes student competition)

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Soil and Water Management and Conservation
Food, energy and environment are inextricably linked by water and that actions in one area more often than not have impacts in one or both of the others. Improved food, energy and environmental security can be achieved through approaches that integrate management and policy sectors and scales.  Model platforms represent important tools to help understand the impact of management practices and soil properties and processes. Further, experts in the field of agricultural systems modeling recognize a need for more research efforts that represent the interface of soil properties and ecosystem impacts particularly related to climate change.  This session aims to bring together researchers specifically investigating ecosystem services related to soil, such as water and nutrient cycling and greenhouse gas emissions. Presentations may address any number of topics including, novel and diverse management practices to restore soil function, predictions of environmental impacts and challenges with modeling different scales: sub-field, field, watershed and the landscape scale.
