BG5.1Integration of Environmental, Socio-Economic and Climatic Change Studies in Northern Eurasia
|Convener: Pavel Groisman | Co-Conveners: Amber Soja , Alexey V. Eliseev|
We invite presentations on the biogeochemical cycles, the surface energy budget and water cycle, and climate and ecosystems interactions in Northern Eurasia (land cover and land use, atmospheric aerosols, soil, and permafrost changes that affect and are being affected by climate and ecosystems changes), 'human dimension' that includes, in addition to impact studies of environmental changes, the feedback studies of societal and land use changes on regional and global environment and climate, and tools to address the Northern Eurasia studies. The particular foci are on integrative multi-disciplinary studies associated with the Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative (NEESPI).
