Submit Papers for Journal Collection on Land-Atmosphere Interactions

Raman lidar
The Doppler lidar, atop the left container, measures profiles of horizontal wind and turbulent motions in the boundary layer. The Raman lidar, to the right, delivers profiles of water vapor. Both lidars, seen at ARM’s Southern Great Plains atmospheric observatory, provided critical data for the 2017 Land-Atmosphere Feedback Experiment (LAFE).

Organizers of a new American Geophysical Union (AGU) cross-journal special collection are looking to publish papers from the research community about advances in scaling and modeling land-atmosphere interactions.

In an Eos article announcing the new collection, the organizers requested papers featuring recent investigations from land-atmosphere campaigns, “including observational analyses, tests of theoretical approaches to scaling or modeling these processes, and model-based evaluation and diagnostic studies.”

Field campaigns of interest for the collection include the Land-Atmosphere Feedback Experiment (LAFE). The LAFE campaign took place in August 2017 at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility’s Southern Great Plains atmospheric observatory.

Until December 31, 2021, the following AGU journals are collecting papers for this call:
