Hubbard Brook Role: 
Investigator
Research Interests: 

Steven P. Hamburg‘s research interests include forest dynamics, historical ecology, calcium biogeochemistry, disturbance ecology and climate change impacts. He is particularly interested in the role of human disturbance, multiple stresses and climate change on forest structure and function. He has established a long-term (23 year) old-field successional study on a site with similar edaphic and elevational characteristics to the experimental watersheds within the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest. He has pioneered the use of quantitative soil pits for monitoring long-term dynamics in soil nutrient and carbon pools. He has been active in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, most recently as lead author on the Special Report "Land use, Land-use Change and Forestry". He has appeared before Congress and a wide variety of other forums, testifying on the impacts of climate change on forest structure and function. He co-chaired the first meeting of the East Asia and Pacific Region International LTER network, and currently serves as co-chair of the US Liason Group to the network.
