The theme issue will specifically focus on the role of land use and land cover change on all aspects of local, regional and global climate. Manuscripts may include modeling, observational, or experimental research. The manuscript submission deadline for this special issue is June 30th, 2006. The submission process will employ the current web-based submission platform of the American Meteorological Society. Authors must indicate in the “description” section of the submission web-page that the paper should be part this special issue, and include the special issue title (“Impacts of Land Use Change on Climate”).

Submitted manuscripts will be handled by the regular editors of JAMC and will go through the regular peer review process as per guidelines of the AMS and JAMC.
