Special Issue "Land-Atmosphere Interactions: Biogeophysical and Biogeochemical Feedbacks"
A special issue of Atmosphere (ISSN 2073-4433). This special issue belongs to the section "Biosphere/Hydrosphere/Land - Atmosphere Interactions".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 August 2019.
Changes in the physical and chemical properties of terrestrial ecosystems influence the climate system through the biogeophysical and biogeochemical feedbacks in land-atmosphere interactions. Land-atmosphere interactions involve exchanges of water, energy, carbon and other chemical components including nitrogen and methane. This special issue in Atmosphere aims at improving our understanding of the physical and chemical processes in the land and atmosphere systems at a variety of spatial scales of meso-, synoptic-, and even planetary-scales. Papers are invited that focus on the effects of terrestrial ecosystems on local, regional, and global budgets of water, energy, and atmospheric properties using observational and modeling analysis. We are particularly interested in (but not limited to) the impacts of the human-induced land use and land cover changes, due to expansion and intensification of deforestation, afforestation and agricultural practices, on the atmosphere through the exchanges in water, energy, and chemical components.

For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
