The goals of this project were to: (1) promote better information exchange between thirteen of the existing NSRC-funded synthesis efforts, and (2) construct a ‘master’ regional database on northern forest and aquatic ecosystem response to environmental change. We will use this collaboration and master database to (1) describe regional trends in surface water, vegetation, and soil chemistry, (2) investigate interactions between two or more vectors of change across the region (e.g. N and Hg), and (3) to identify major gaps in our research agendas and data acquisition processes.
