Call for Papers



Call for Papers for “Global Land-use Change and Carbon/Climate Dynamics”

Submission acceptance begins: 01 January 2014
Submission deadline is: 30 September 2014


Guest Editor: George C. Hurtt, University of Maryland

Human land-use activities have expanded over time and resulted in large changes to the biogeochemical and biophysical properties of the Earth surface, with resulting implications for climate. In the future, land-use activities may expand and/or intensify further to meet growing demands for food, fiber, and energy. The science addressing the effects of land-use on the carbon/climate system is timely, interdisciplinary, and advancing rapidly. This special section brings together a collection of articles aimed at quantifying and improving the understanding of the effects of global land-use change on carbon/climate dynamics in the past, present, and future.

Manuscripts are invited for a special section of Global Biogeochemical Cycle journal. All manuscripts should be submitted through the GEMS Web site. For additional information please contact: gbc@agu.org


Call for Papers for “Trends and Determinants of the Amazon Rainforests in a Changing World, a Carbon Cycle Perspective”

Submission acceptance begins: 05 December 2013
Submission deadline is: 10 January 2015

The Amazon region is an important region for the global carbon cycle, climate and biodiversity. This special volume brings together a collection of articles aiming to characterize the current state and changes of the Amazon coupled land vegetation climate system in a warming and continually developing region from a carbon cycle angle. The approach taken by a joint UK-Brazilian consortium is a full systems approach combining large-scale constraints, specifically regular lower troposphere greenhouse gas measurements, with remote sensing data, forest census plots, riverine measurements and process studies. The measurement approaches are all chosen to permit conclusions at the full Basin scale. The study period is 2009-2013, which witnessed both anomalously dry conditions (2010) and unusually severe floods (2011/12) and thus provides an special opportunity for insights about the response of the system to climate anomalies. To round off the picture we characterize socio-economic drivers and finally provide an outlook.
