Land-Atmosphere Interactions and Biosphere-Boundary Layer Feedbacks

Session ID#: 24392

Session Description:
Interactions and feedbacks at the soil-vegetation-atmospheric boundary layer interface crucially affect biological, chemical, and physical ecosystem processes such as surface-energy partitioning, evapotranspiration, and the exchange of atmospheric trace gases. These processes in turn impact boundary-layer structures and growth, clouds, and convective development. An improved understanding of these feedbacks can help reduce uncertainties associated with global energy and water cycles, land-management, and the climate system. This session is open to theoretical, experimental, remote sensing, and modeling studies in land-atmosphere interactions across natural and managed ecosystems, from the local to regional scale. We appreciate contributions explore the role of both vegetation and atmosphere in modulating energy and matte exchange within the coupled surface-atmosphere system. Of special interest are novel approaches that fuse observations and models or that capture land-atmosphere feedbacks the across multiple spatial and temporal scales.
