This chapter explores the various land-water interactions research carried out at Toolik Lake. It looks into the production and chemical transformation of materials in terrestrial environments and how they respond to changes in climate. It considers the controls on production, transaction, and export of materials from land, and studies how those materials are processed within lakes and streams. It provides a framework of biogeochemical cycling within and between ecosystems and follows a general conceptual model that illustrates four major controls on the dynamics in a biome. It enumerates these controls as: production of dissolved carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus; effects of hydrology and biological processing on export; hillslope processes and landscape interactions; and response of aquatic ecosystems.
