Biogeophysical Climate Impacts of Land Use and Land Cover Change (LULCC)

Description:

Biogeophysical effects of land use and land cover changes (LULCC) play a significant role in modulating climate at various spatial scales. Studies suggest that the impacts of LULCC is as important as emission-linked climate change at multiple scales. This special collection includes papers based on observational data- and model-based studies that address climatic impacts of LULCC. Topics addressed, among others, are: LULCC and temperature extremes at continental scale, land use impacts on sea breeze, urbanization impacts on regional climate, LULCC impacts on global and regional scale climate, irrigation impacts on precipitation, cooling due to LULCC, and climate model sensitivity to CO2 and vegetation in the context of LULCC. Papers focus on global to local scales and regions included are Australia, African Sahel, Western Europe, and various regions of Asia and the U.S.
