A1: Land-use change in a warming world: interactions between climate and socio-ecological systems, and implications for land-based climate change mitigation

Anna Harper (Exeter University, UK), Almut Arneth (KIT, Germany), Jo House (Bristol University, UK)

This session invites contributions that assess the interactions of land-use change with atmospheric composition, climate change, ecosystem functioning, and/or ecosystem services. Land management for carbon storage is a key component of climate change mitigation discussions – both as a method of removing CO2 from the atmosphere and of reducing terrestrial emissions. However, the feasibility of mitigation approaches needs to be assessed also with respect to broader socio-ecological impacts. We also encourage contributions that assess the numerous uncertainties in future land-use change and land-use change impacts, and consider societal, economic, or political constraints on land-based mitigation. We seek to have a lively discussion of co-benefits and trade-offs of various land-based mitigation strategies, and to assess how these emerge at global and regional scales.

A2: The flow of nitrogen through the land-atmosphere system

Ute Skibe (CEH,UK), Ralf Kiese (KIT, Germany), Claudia Cordovil (U Lisbon, Portugal), Sanjeev Kumar (Physical Research Laboratory, India)

Excess amounts of reactive N (Nr) compounds in the environment threatens air, water, and soil quality, effects ecosystem functioning and biodiversity, alters the greenhouse gas balance and impacts on climate change. Nr interactions with atmospheric processes can lead to air pollution such as photochemical smog, increased tropospheric ozone concentrations and particulate matter (PM);  thereby seriously affecting human health. Although many research and policy efforts have drawn attention to the atmospheric nitrogen problems, reality shows that the over-emission of Nr to the environment is still an unsolved problem.

In this session, we invite contributions addressing the key challenges of nitrogen flows, with a focus on land-atmosphere exchange and systematic approaches utilising experimental research tools and modelling. In line with the overarching objectives of iLEAPS, the focus of this session will be on interactions between biological, chemical and physical processes.

A3: The role of soils in the global environmental change 

Bridget Emmett (CEH, UK), Jack Cosby (CEH, UK), Anne Verhoef (Reading University, UK) 

There is a growing awareness of the importance of soils in the global environment. For instance, there is an international commitment to address climate mitigation through soil carbon sequestration (IPCC reporting; COP21 ‘4 per mille’ commitment). In addition, the physical nature of soils (their hydraulic and thermal properties) will determine how well the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum will be able to deal with changes in atmospheric drivers. This is important as it can affect droughts, floods and heat waves and hence global food, water and energy resources.

A key aspect of our uncertainty about soils is the impact of soil organic carbon (SOC) on key soil functions and the extent of SOC change in response to both the atmospheric conditions (temperature, rainfall, CO2) as well as land management (tillage, organic farming).

We invite abstracts that address an understanding of the interaction between land use, climate and soils.

A4: Impacts of fire on land and atmosphere

Gita Lasslop (MPI, Germany), Stijn Hantson (KIT, Germany), Douglas Kelley (CEH, UK)

Fire is a global phenomenon influencing ecosystem patterns, carbon stocks and fluxes, and atmospheric composition. Increasingly detailed observational data of different aspects of fire regimes have opened opportunities for improving our understanding of fire drivers and impacts from local to global scales. Atmospheric conditions such as moisture strongly determine the probability of fire occurrence, but vegetation properties and human influences are increasingly recognised as important factors. The aim of this session is to improve the understanding of interactions between fire, land surface, and atmosphere. We invite contributions using remote sensing, in situ observations, charcoal records, laboratory experiments or modelling. We are interested in studies that improve our understanding of (1) the importance of climate, atmospheric and vegetative conditions on fire occurrence across scales (2) the impacts of fire on properties of land and atmosphere, or (3) feedbacks between fire, land and atmosphere.

B1: Ozone-vegetation interactions and effects on ecosystems, agriculture and climate

Gina Mills (CEH, UK), Amos Tai (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, China)

Tropospheric ozone is a harmful air pollutant that not only is detrimental to human health but also induces severe damage on natural vegetation and crops, with significant ramifications for global food security and ecosystem health. As plants play a crucial role in regulating the hydrological and atmospheric environments, ozone-induced plant damage would in turn have substantial impacts on regional air quality and climate. This session solicits work on field, laboratory and modelling studies that probes into the effects of ozone exposures on ecosystems and crops, and the subsequent impacts on atmospheric composition, hydrological cycle and climate via various physical and biogeochemical pathways. Emphasis on long-term monitoring, assessment and projection of the sustainability of natural and agricultural ecosystems under ozone pollution and climate change is particularly encouraged.

B2: Changing water cycle in the food baskets of the world (joint session with GEWEX)

Peter van Oevelen (GEWEX), Jan Polcher (CNRS, France), Alberto Martinez (CEH, UK)

Population is expected to increase by 30% by 2050, and the demand for food is expected to rise even faster with a diet evolving from minimal calorie to high protein. These socioeconomic changes need to be in harmony with food security (availability, access, utilisation and stability) in the context of a changing climate where unprecedented long-term changes are likely to occur. Changes to seasonal to interannual variability, extreme events and heat stress will all have an impact on agriculture, particularly rain-fed agriculture which is most vulnerable to droughts. Different food producing regions of the world will be affected differently by a changing climate, and the endangerment of food production due to changes in the water cycle needs to be addressed.

This issue is a WCRP (World Climate Research Programme) Grand Challenge. This session, proposed jointly with GEWEX (Global Energy and Water Exchanges), aims to explore how a warming world will affect the available fresh water resources globally and how that translates specifically to the food basket regions of the world

B3: Canopy Processes and Deposition

Laurens Ganzeveld (Wageningen University, Netherlands), Kirsti Ashworth (U. Lancaster, UK), Alex Guenther (UCI, USA) and Garry Hayman (CEH, UK)

The land surface acts as both a source and a sink for atmospheric trace gases and aerosols. The vegetation canopy is a highly dynamic system that is often overlooked in Earth system modelling, in part because we do not have a good understanding of many of the processes involved in emissions and deposition from and to vegetation and soil surfaces, chemical transformation, turbulence and vertical mixing. Yet these processes are of fundamental importance if we are to correctly simulate the exchange of trace components between the biosphere and atmosphere, a key component of the Earth system.

In this session we will explore the fundamental processes involved in the exchange of gases and particles between the biosphere and atmosphere and examine how best to further our understanding of this complex system. We welcome contributions describing the challenges of making measurements in this highly heterogeneous space, the way the canopy is represented in models and how to combine the two to gain insight into canopy processes.

B4: Interaction of urban air quality and ecosystems

Stefan Reis (CEH, UK), Meehye Lee (Korea University, South Korea), Sirrku Juhola (University of Helsinki, Finland), Vinod Kumar (Indian Institute for Science and Education Research, India)

Urban areas are the center of resources for population residing in both urban and rural areas. Various kind of emission activities e.g. traffic, domestic and industrial affect the air quality of these areas. The air quality has direct impact on public health, but from an ecosystem perspective, its impact on energy uses, biogeochemical processes, plant productivity, biodiversity, aquatic life and climate is also of great importance. By virtue of transport and chemical aging, the urban air quality can impact non-urban ecosystem e.g. agriculture and forests. Various ecosystems and different component of the same ecosystem may interact differently with changing air quality. Knowledge gap in the pollution-specific interaction with the various components of the ecosystem should be understood to assess the overall impact of air quality on the ecosystem to come up with effective mitigation measures. The mitigation policies need to include both air quality improvement and ecosystem-level changes.

C1: Impact of extremes on land biophysical processes and land-atmosphere biogeochemical cycling

Toby Marthews (CEH, UK), Yadvinder Malhi (University of Oxford, UK), Sonia Seneviratne (ETH Zurich, Switzerland), Markus Reichstein (MPI, Germany)

Many processes that affect the land surface are fundamentally nonlinear: threshold effects and tipping points are often the norm and these cannot be predicted without a thorough process representation of the mechanisms involved. Extreme phenomena associated with e.g. El Niño, droughts, heat or cold events, or extreme wind events have numerous impacts across the globe that we still do not fully understand, and translating these large-scale constraints into fine-scale impacts involves finely-balanced, local biosphere-atmosphere interactions that remain little measured or understood. This session will explore the impacts of extreme events on land-atmosphere interactions and biogeochemical cycling, in particular on fluxes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, drawing together evidence from observational field studies and modelling studies.

C2: Thawing permafrost carbon: a challenge for climate science

Gerhard Krinner (CNRS, France), Douglas Clark (CEH, UK)

The vast amounts of organic carbon locked in frozen soil at high northern latitudes have long been known as a potential source of positive feedback to climate change. However, understanding of the processes and quantification of the potential feedback have been hampered by factors including the difficulty of accessing permafrost terrain, and the high spatial variability and complexity of the physical and biogeochemical processes. Progress has been achieved by combining a range of approaches and spatial scales but most large-scale climate models still do not represent well the fundamental biogeochemical processes of carbon-rich permafrost areas – hence thawing permafrost is recognised as a central issue for two WCRP Grand Challenges ("Melting Ice”, “Carbon feedbacks"). This session will provide an overview of recent progress in the quantification, understanding and modelling of permafrost processes and permafrost-related climate feedbacks; identify the most pressing issues in modelling and observation; and discuss avenues for future progress.

C3: Understanding the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change and rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations

Matthew Williams (University of Edinburgh, UK), Lina Mercado (Exeter University and CEH, UK), Martin de Kauwe (Macquarie University, Australia)

The response of terrestrial ecosystems to global change -increasing atmospheric CO2, temperature and changing water availability- is key to projecting the global carbon cycle.  To address this knowledge gap, a number of CO2 manipulation experiments have been conducted over the last 30 years. Previous attempts to constrain terrestrial biosphere models against experimental responses have identified a range of key weakness in existing models used to simulate future climate change. Now a new generation of CO2 manipulation experiments in mature ecosystems have either been planned or are now operational. These data, in combination with past manipulation experiments (CO2, warming and precipitation), as well as other long term monitoring datasets (e.g. FLUXNET), present an unprecedented opportunity to better constrain the critical carbon cycle feedback. In this session, we welcome field and modelling studies that gather understanding on processes such as plant acclimation to CO2 and temperature and associated changes in physiological and growth processes, carbon allocation, nutrient cycling, and soil microbial activity. We particularly encourage ecosystem scale field, synthesis or modelling studies that can advance our current understanding of these processes and shed light on how these important processes can be better represented in models.

C4: Dryland ecosystems: New modelling and measurement challenges 

Sebastien Garrigues (INRA, France and CEH, UK), Sebastian Leuzinger (Aukland University of Technology, New Zealand), Dan Yakir (Weizmann Institute, Israel)  

Arid and semi-arid regions belong to the most vulnerable climate change “hot spots” while also contributing to global scale variations in the carbon and water cycles. In particular, this is because of their high sensitivity to changes in precipitation and surface energy budgets and to the large changes in land-use taking place in these regions. This requires improving the representation of these ecosystems in land surface and ecosystem models. Improving observational approaches is also required to assess variations in their water carbon and energy exchange and to identify underlying processes. The overarching motivation for this session is to bring together students and scientists from a wide range of disciplines that can help improve our understanding of dry land ecosystem processes related to water, carbon and energy under anthropogenic pressure, including members of the experimental, observational, and modelling communities.

D1: Methane from wetlands, lakes and thawing permafrost

Paul Palmer (U. Edinburgh, UK), Vince Gauci (Open University, UK), Donatella Zona (U. Sheffield, UK), Nic Gedney (UK Met Office, UK) and Garry Hayman (CEH, UK)

Since 2007, the atmospheric concentration of methane has shown significant year-on-year increases.  At the same time, the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane (13CH4 vs 12CH4) has become progressively lighter, indicative of an increase in emissions from biogenic methane sources such as wetlands.  Wetlands are one of the largest, but least well quantified, sources of methane, with estimated mean annual emissions of 167 (127-202) Tg yr-1, compared to total annual emissions of 558 Tg yr-1 [Global Carbon Project Methane Budget for 2003-2012]. Wetland methane emissions show significant interannual variability and are likely to respond strongly to a changing climate.

The wetland model intercomparison has highlighted the challenges of wetland modelling. Recent studies have reported significant cold season methane fluxes at Arctic Alaskan sites and new pathways to the atmosphere in tropical wetlands. This session welcomes contributions on wetland methane research encompassing measurements, process studies and modelling on all spatial scales from site to global. We take a broad definition of wetlands to include freshwater lakes and thawing permafrost.

D2: Measuring and modelling biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs)

Allison Steiner (University of Michigan, USA), Vinayak Sinha (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, India), Eddy Comyn-Platt (CEH, UK), Ana Maria Yanez Serrano (Freiburg University, Germany)

The abundant and diverse range of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) plays an important role in the Earth system at different spatial scales, from cellular-level antioxidant protection to modulation of atmospheric chemistry at the ecosystem level. Depending on tropospheric conditions, BVOC emissions can impact air quality and radiative forcing, leading to complex feedbacks in the Earth system. However, considerable uncertainties persist with regard to measuring and modelling BVOCs from the leaf to ecosystem level. Models struggle to characterize the diversity of plant species and BVOC emissions and the complex atmospheric chemistry which depends on the local atmospheric composition. Measurement techniques continue to improve for better characterisation and quantification of the magnitude and source of BVOC emissions given their short atmospheric lifetimes and relatively low abundance at any given time. This session invites contributions presenting recent developments in BVOC modelling and/or measurements to jointly improve our understanding of the mechanistic processes behind BVOC dynamics in ecosystems across the globe.

D3: Impact of aerosol emissions on clouds and precipitation

Danny Rosenfeld (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel), Philip Stier (Oxford University, UK)

Natural and anthropogenic emissions of aerosols and their precursors can affect clouds by acting as cloud droplets and ice nuclei. Therefore, these emissions affect cloud microphysics and precipitation forming processes. The response of the clouds to the altered precipitation can potentially have large impacts on their dynamics, organization and on the atmospheric circulation at all scales, with a cascade of feedbacks. Aerosol can affect clouds and precipitation also by their direct radiative effects. Presentations attributing land based emission sources of all kinds to the impacts on clouds and precipitation are particularly encouraged. A good example are studies related to GOAmazon, but other regions and regimes might be as interesting.

D4: Where are the greatest uncertainties in the Global terrestrial Carbon Budgets?

Stephen Sitch (Exeter University, UK), Chris Huntingford (CEH, UK)

Land ecosystems absorb around one quarter of anthropogenic CO2 emission each year, and thus act to mitigate climate change. However these CO2 “sinks” are modulated by climate change and variability. The response of land ecosystems to changing climate and atmospheric composition is arguably the most uncertain component of the global carbon cycle, and thus the land carbon sink is often derived as the residual from the other components (fossil and land-use emissions minus ocean sink minus atmospheric growth rate). Determining the land carbon sink locations, their variation through time, and attribution to underlying processes still remains a challenge. In this session we welcome both modelling and empirical studies that aim to either quantify, attribute or reduce uncertainties in the terrestrial carbon cycle across major global  biomes. Studies are also welcome that present uncertainty reduction in expected future land-atmosphere CO2 exchange in terms of “permissible emissions” to achieve global warming stabilisation targets.

E1: Land-atmosphere processes and agricultural transformation in Africa

Sally Archibald (University of Witwatersrand, South Africa), HaPe Schmidt (KIT, Germany), Cornelia Klein (CEH, UK), Kermeels Jaars (North-West University, South Africa) 

The African landmass is a significant contributor to global land-atmosphere processes, and conversely large regions of the African continent are highly sensitive to climate- and land-use change and the ensuing shifts in precipitation patterns, temperature regimes, nutrient cycling and ecosystem distributions. Africa currently contains ~10% of the tropical forest biome and ~30% of the worlds savanna ecosystems, and ~70% of the annual burned area occurs in Africa. Although utilized in various ways, these ecosystems are still relatively untransformed: more than half of the remaining potentially arable land globally is in Africa.

However, demand for economic growth and rapidly increasing populations mean there is pressure for both intensification and expansion of agricultural activities, with likely consequences of massive environmental change over the coming decades. Baseline data on land-atmosphere processes for intact and transformed African ecosystems are essential for informing policy decisions that have the potential to influence the pathways of how this will happen, and abate some of the expected consequences of agricultural transformation, including impacts on water availability, carbon- and other biogeochemical cycling, soil degradation and biodiversity. Research activities organized in strong integrative regional networks will enable this information to be effectively utilized and communicated. This special session aims to bring together African ecosystem researchers to assess what is known, and what we consider the key research priorities in this field for the coming decades.

E3: Confronting land models with data for assessment and verification

Dave Lawrence (NCAR, USA), Jan Polcher (CNRS, France), Rich Ellis (CEH, UK)

This session will review progress in the field of land model assessment and/or calibration with observations., The scope of the session spans the full range of spatial and temporal scales from point level assessments, for example with flux site data, through to regional or global assessment with remotely sensed or otherwise upscaled products.  The role of observational uncertainty will also be addressed.

Abstracts are invited for submission that assess any or all processes and predictions of land models whether that be physical (water / heat fluxes), vegetation (photosynthesis / competition) or biogeochemical (carbon stocks and fluxes, CH4, O3, BVOCS).

E4: Ground-based observations for ecosystem-atmosphere interactions 

John Moncrieff (University of Edinburgh, UK), Eiko Nemitz (CEH, UK)

Innovative ways of measuring the exchange of energy and mass fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere are emerging such as the use of drones, fly-by-wire instruments, scintillommetry and ground-based remote sensing. These are complementary to the established micrometeorological methods such as eddy flux and chambers. The latter techniques in particular are currently being used in networks across the world and often in combination with tall towers and flag-ship sites in key locations. For the data to be useful for our increased understanding of the land-atmosphere exchanges, the community needs work to a consistent standard and that is largely the preserve of well-established networks such as FLUXNET. In addition, technical developments continue to allow eddy flux approaches to be extended to novel compounds and situations.

This session invites presentations that discuss both innovations and standards of ground-based observations of ecosystem-atmosphere exchanges of reactive and non-reactive gases as well as aerosols.

E5: Using Earth Observation for constraining the ecosystem-atmosphere interactions at a range of scales

France Gerard (CEH, UK), Hartmut Boesch (University of Leicester, UK), Diego Fernández Prieto (European Space Agency, Italy)

To date Earth observation has delivered a variety of global datasets of geo-physical variables that contribute to characterising land surface and atmosphere interactions. Some provide long time-series (e.g. vegetation dynamics, soil moisture, precipitation, aerosols, evapotranspiration, greenhouse gases, reactive trace gases); some provide unprecedented high spatial detail (e.g. 30m global forest cover, 30m Global Surface Water); some are still in their developmental stage (e.g. vegetation optical depth, fluorescence). Recent (e.g. SMAP, GOSAT-2, GPM, Sentinels) and future EO missions (e.g. BIOMASS, GEDI, FLEX, EarthCARE, ECOSTRESS, OCO3) provide novel opportunities for more detailed or accurate Earth exploration. This session aims to showcase studies that have exploited existing or newly developed EO derived data to further understand or disentangle processes driving ecosystem-atmosphere exchanges and feedbacks observed at global, continental or local scales; studies that have combined EO with ecosystem-atmosphere modelling and/or in-situ observations or studies that evaluated or propose new or improved EO datasets relevant to the ILEAPS community.
