Urban Areas and Global Change Session at AGU Fall Meeting 2018

June 25, 2018 in Meetings

We invite you to join the “Urban Areas and Global Change” session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2018 in Washington, D.C.¬† There is usually a strong representation from the urban climate community in this session, and we welcome abstracts broadly on urban climate measurements and modeling, fluxes, remote sensing, and related urbanization policy fields.

FINAL DEADLINE: 1 August 2018 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.

Submit an abstract at the following link: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2018/abstract-submissions/

AGU Fall Meeting  Washington, D.C., 10-14 December 2018

Session GC095: Urban Areas and Global Change

Urban areas have important feedbacks to Earth system processes from local to global scales. Understanding these feedbacks requires a combination of expertise from different scientific fields. This session invites submissions of new results based on observational, modeling, or data-driven studies of biogeochemical, biophysical, or ecological interactions of human-land-atmosphere systems in urban areas; and of socio-institutional and technological components affecting the spatial and temporal patterns of carbon emissions. We encourage submissions from researchers, who develop and deploy new measurement techniques and scaling methods in complex urban environments and from social scientists, engineers and modeling groups that incorporate urban processes in models. Potential topics of this session include, but are not limited to: energy budgets and greenhouse gases in urban areas; effects of urbanization on regional climate, air quality, and biogeochemical cycles; influence of demographic dynamics, affluence, and socio-political conditions; and implications of these interactions for public policy and urban planning.
