Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017)
The role of physical geographers in ensuring the attainment of sustainability in a variety of Earth environments and systems at a multitude of scales is critical. This special issue calls on the expertise of physical geographers, including geomorphologists, climatologists, and so on, to consider the future of geosystems in a variety of settings and locations throughout the world. Accordingly, a diversity of landscapes are approached from an integrated systems point of view. A breadth of submissions is acceptable, including original research articles and reviews. The key aim is to contemplate sustainability from the perspective of physical geographers who focus on environmental problems and their solutions. Please contact the guest editor (Mary Thornbush: firstname.lastname@example.org) for early feedback on your submission.
