      Key Points

      • Forest vegetation can enhance conditions favorable to its own existence
      • Removal of forest vegetation can alter conditions necessary to sustain growth
      • Deforestation can lead to irreversible state shifts
    3. Modeling morphodynamic processes in meandering rivers with spatial width variations

      G. Zolezzi, R. Luchi and M. Tubino

      Key Points

      • Width-curvature interactions in meandering rivers are fundamentally nonlinear
      • Causal relations between midchannel bars, width variations are disentangled
      • Autogenic morphodynamics can partially explain differences in meandering styles
    4. Convective quasi-equilibrium

      J.-I. Yano and R. S. Plant

      Key Points

      • Various perspectives are examined on an equal footing
      • Basic physical concepts are carefully discussed
      • Aimed to subdue confusions associated with this concept
    5. Oceanic and terrestrial sources of continental precipitation
