Land Ecosystem – Atmosphere Processes Conference

From Saturday January 21 though Thursday January 26, 2006 the Integrated Land Ecosystem – Atmosphere Processes Study (iLEAPs) has an international meeting in Boulder, Colorado USA. The meeting schedule and list of talks is available. This meeting highlights the latest results on the understanding of land-atmosphere interactions within the climate system.

The conference

“….will highlight the relevant aspects concerning the interfaces between land-biosphere-atmosphere. In particular we will focus on four main topics: Land-atmosphere exchange of reactive and conservative compounds – key interactions and feedbacks in the earth system, feedbacks between land biota, aerosols and atmospheric composition in the climate system, feedbacks and teleconnections in the land surface-atmosphere-water-system and transfer of material and energy in the soil/canopy/boundary-layer system: measurements and modelling.”

A special issue from the 1st iLEAPS Science Conference will be published in Tellus B. The elevation of land surface processes as a critical climate system issue continues.
