Subject: [ginkgo] EGU 2011 session on biospheric feedbacks
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
c) Global and continental scale anthropogenic land cover change, past,
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.*
