091 Long-term perspectives on aquatic research

Long-term data sets from freshwater, estuarine, and marine ecosystems provide unique perspective on complex dynamics of organisms and ecosystems, particularly as they respond to both anthropogenic pressures and large-scale climate phenomena. Recent studies provide powerful examples of the role of long-term data in elucidating major ecosystem processes, to reveal phenomena that would not be evident on shorter time frames, from documenting surprising multi-decadal teleconnections of physical, chemical and biological phenomena, to unraveling complexities in biogeochemistry, population dynamics, and community ecology. Although aquatic ecosystems differ in the specifics of patterns discovered through long-term research, long-term programs typically share common challenges in sustaining continuity, maintaining robust cyberinfrastructure, and applying appropriate statistical approaches to complex time series. In this session, we hope to emphasize the need for community effort to develop, share, and safe-guard these long-term data sets by highlighting examples of their use in revealing patterns of multi-scale temporal change in aquatic ecosystems, informing management decisions, and engaging the public in the science and stewardship of aquatic environments. This session will be the seed for a 2018 special issue of Limnology and Oceanography.
