  LTER Cross-Site Research

Researchers at the Andrews Forest LTER are actively involved, both leading and participating in many cross-site projects Cross-site studies are encouraged among LTER sites and more broadly. Many of the cross site collaborations involve scientists from USFS Experimental Forests, biological field stations and other sites of long term research. The LTER Network creates scientific, social and administrative opportunities for cross site collaborations through funding for workshops and meetings.

Scientists at the Andrews Forest are very involved as leaders or participants in the following cross-site projects:

These LTER working groups were initiated by Andrews Forest scientists:

A Data Synthesis Working Group: Disappearing Snow in the Western US: Ecosystem Implications for the Rain-Snow Transition Zone. Anne Nolin. $25,360. 2011
