Session Description:

The world is increasingly telecoupled (environmentally and socioeconomically interconnected) through the flows of species, people, goods, information, services, water, air, energy, and capital, among others. These flows are made possible through processes such as trade, tourism, water transfer, technology transfer, disease spread, migration, and information dissemination. Furthermore, events tied to climate change, environmental change, hazards, human activities, war, and critical infrastructure failure in one place could have socioeconomic and environmental impacts in places far away around the world, which in turn form feedbacks. Such distant interactions also have broad societal implications for policy making, resource management, disaster control, planning, design, governance, and sustainable development. This session welcomes contributions that address various aspects of distant interactions, such as dynamics, causes, flows, and effects.
