Seeking abstracts for AGU session on Humans in the Earth System

Related GLP Member: Alan Di Vittorio

Dear GLP Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session on humans in the earth system, convened by:
Hannah Liddy
Victor Brovkin
Natasha MacBean
Alan Di Vittorio

We hope that you and your colleagues will help us round out the methodological approaches in this session as many of you take more bottom-up and/or local approaches to addressing humans in the earth system than the approaches employed in the earth system and integrated assessment modelling communities. The deadline for submission is July 31.

Note that Kate Calvin and Sonia Seneviratne have agreed to be our invited speakers for this session.

We would appreciate it if you would share this with people who may be interested.

GC029 - Humans in the Earth System

Earth system models bridge the gap between observations and theory by providing a common framework to study the stresses of global change on the biosphere and climate, although representations of human activities are limited. There also is a related underexploited opportunity to explore the interactions between the biophysical and biogeochemical Earth System and human systems through closer coordination of in-situ and space-based observations. In this session, we are seeking contributions from interdisciplinary modeling and observation groups linking physical and social systems sciences for the rigorous quantification of feedbacks and attribution of human activity on the coupled biogeochemical and physical Earth system. Contributions from Earth System Modeling and Integrated Assessment Modeling groups on analysis of coupled climate, land use, and societal dynamics in CMIP6 projections are encouraged. We also encourage contributions with other perspectives and methods on how to bridge the physical-social science divide in global change research.

I hope to read your abstract,
