B52B:
Integrating In Situ and Remote Sensing Observations of the Terrestrial Biosphere to Provide Insights into Earth System Function II


Session ID#: 10264

Session Description:
In this session we call for contributions of current advances in terrestrial ecology and carbon cycle science that integrate in-situ and remote sensing observations of the terrestrial biosphere, and models of ecosystems, in ways that provide regional and global insights into earth system functions.  We seek synthetic, interdisciplinary contributions that use orbital and/or suborbital remote sensing systems to address pressing questions in terrestrial ecology, biosphere-atmosphere interactions, land use and land cover change, and carbon cycle science. Much of this work will have been made possible by past and present field campaigns that have catalyzed major scientific advances, such as FIFE, BOREAS, LBA-Ecology, the North American Carbon Program, and the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment.
