Toward a Comprehensive Understanding of Land-Atmosphere Interactions at Multiple Scales

International Workshop: Land-Atmosphere Interactions at the Regional Scale; Madrid, Spain, 8–10 October 2012



There is an increasing awareness of the major influence that land-atmosphere interactions (L-AI) have on weather and climate at local and regional scales. Scientists’ understanding of the physical processes governing the interactions between atmospheric dynamics and land surface processes is still limited, which hampers improvement in model parameterizations.
