Climate Meeting On Biospheric Feedbacks In The Climate System

The recognition that the climate system involves much more than just the radiative effect of CO2 and a few other greenhouse gases is becoming better recognized. A call for papers in an upcoming meeting of the EGU highlights this broadening.  The call for papers reads

Subject: [ginkgo] EGU 2011 session on biospheric feedbacks

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in a special session on

*Biosphere-Atmosphere interactions: feedbacks in the global Earth system in the past, present, and future* (co sponsored by iLEAPS) (Session CL1.25) at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna, 3 – 8 April 2011.

Convener: Claussen, M.  Co-Convener: Brovkin, V.

Contributions are welcome in the field of:

a) Global scale vegetation dynamics and feedback with climate system

b) Interaction between vegetation feedbacks on a local scale and global
scale feedbacks

c) Global and continental scale anthropogenic land cover change, past,
present, future

d) Lifespan of the biosphere, astrobiology

e) Concepts and simplified models of climate-ecosystem feedbacks

f) Comprehensive dynamic global ecosystem models

h) Global data sets for feedbacks assessment

*The deadline for submitting abstracts is 10 JANUARY 2011.*

Details about the conference and submission of abstracts can be found at:

Please distribute this email to interested scientists.

We are looking forward to receiving your abstract.

With best regards,

Victor Brovkin and Martin Claussen
