Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue will focus on the integration of remote sensing, sensors, geographical information systems (GIS), process-based models, and empirical models to quantify interactions among solar radiation, climate and biogeochemical cycles in ecological systems at local-to-global scales. Full research papers with new findings and reviews about the state-of-the-art of integration methods for spatial and temporal modeling of changes in the biosphere-atmosphere-hydrosphere-pedosphere systems are welcome. Submissions are strongly encouraged for the following topics, but are not limited to the following:

  • Utilization of remotely sensed data for solar radiation (SR), photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), canopy dynamics, land-use/land-cover dynamics;
  • Application of GIS and geostatistics to model feedbacks and dynamics of solar radiation and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., carbon, nitrogen, water);
  • Integration of remotely sensed data, GIS, and mechanistic and empirical models to have a better understanding and quantification of interactions among solar radiation, climate, distribution of ecosystems and/or plant functional types, and biological and/or ecosystem productivity; and
  • Simulation of changes in SR, PAR and cloudiness and their impacts on the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems in response to climate change scenarios.
