Dr. Kara Webster joined GLFC as a forest soil ecologist in January 2010. She works as part of the research team that investigates soil and water sustainability.  Her main research interests are understanding the controls on the fate of forest soil carbon and how that fate is linked to other nutrient cycles and hydrologic fluxes. She combines field monitoring, empirical and process-based ecosystem modelling, and GIS mapping to investigate soil processes across various spatial scales.
