SSS9.21/GM4.7Soil Erosion, Land Use and Climate Change: mapping, measuring, modelling, and societal challenges (co-organized)
|Convener: Anna Smetanova | Co-Conveners: Rossano Ciampalini , Marcus Schindewolf , Jose Constantine , Joao Pedro Nunes|
Soil erosion, climate, land use and society are, undoubtedly, inter-related. Understanding and managing their linkages and common feedbacks, within a changing environment, is one of the greatest challenges of our time. This session brings together interdisciplinary expertise, tools and approaches for the study of the erosion-land use management-climate change nexus, in the past, present and for predicting its development in future. It provides a unique platform for the discussion of the common issues, the datasets and methodologies and the perspectives of their development. Such discussions are needed to improve the efficacy of joined efforts and to provide sustainable and adaptable solutions to societal challenges related to soil erosion-land use and climate change.
The contribution of 41 research teams will be presented within three specialised oral blocks, namely (1) Erosion, Land Use Management and Society: understanding past and present linkages under a global change perspective, (2) Soil Erosion, Land Use and Climate Change: mapping and monitoring changes to face environmental challenges, (3) Soil Erosion, Land Use and Climate Change: from data to integrated modelling for future perspectives, and a poster session. Each oram block will be opened by a presentation of solicited speakers: Tom Vanwalleghem, Panos Panagos, and Nikolas Kuhn.
The conveners of the session kindly invite you to join the interesting programme and to contribute to the discussion, that is necessary to improve the efficacy of joined research efforts and inevitable for sustainable and adaptable solutions to societal challenges related to soil erosion-land use and climate change. Looking forward to see you in Vienna!
