Commentary on US-Japan Joint Seminar

A short paper summarizing the US-Japan Joint Seminar that we held last March was accepted for publication in Hydrological Processes.  The paper describes the intent and outcomes of the workshop, which focused on linkages between hydrology and biogeochemistry in forested catchments with an emphasis on climatic and environmental change.  The seminar last March spawned several synthesis efforts, one of which was presented this week at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.  That presentation focused on hydrologic recovery after forest disturbance and there is a parallel analysis examining nitrate response after forest disturbance.  Tomoki Oda, Mark Green, and Todd Scanlon are leading those projects.

We want to thank all contributors to the workshop, especially the speakers, students, and those leading the synthesis efforts.
