GC081:
Urban Areas and Global Change





Session ID#: 25463

Session Description:
Urban areas have important feedbacks to Earth system processes from local to global scales. Understanding these feedbacks often requires a combination of expertise from different scientific fields. This session invites submissions of new results based on observational, experimental, modeling, or data-analysis studies of biogeochemical or ecological interactions of human-land-atmosphere systems in urban areas; and of socio-institutional and technological components affecting the spatial and temporal patterns of carbon emissions. We encourage submissions from researchers, who develop and deploy new measurement techniques and scaling methods in complex urban environments and from social scientists, engineers and modeling groups that incorporate urban processes in models. Potential topics of this session include, but are not limited to: energy budgets and greenhouse gases in urban areas; effects of urbanization on regional climate, air quality, and biogeochemical cycles; influence of demographic dynamics, affluence, and socio-political conditions; and implications of these interactions for public policy and urban planning.
