"Genealogy of Calcium at Hubbard Brook: Soils, Parent and Grandparent Materials"

Presenter: Scott Bailey
Research Geoecologist, US Forest Service, Northern Research Station

Concern about the effects of air pollution, climate change, and intensive harvests have heightened attempts to evaluate the sustainability of calcium supply to forests. This presentation takes a long look at the calcium economy of the nearby Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest to address the sources and fate of calcium as it is cycled through the ecosystem.

Scott Bailey is a Research Geoecologist with the US Forest Service, Northern Research Station, and adjunct faculty with the Center for the Environment. His research focuses on interactions between earth materials and water, with applications for understanding development of soil, regulation of water quality, and the distribution and function of plants.
