American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting

12-16 December 2022, San Francisco, California, USA

Session B012 – The Role of Fire in the Earth System: Understanding Drivers, Feedbacks, and Interactions with the Land, Atmosphere, and Society 

Call for Abstracts

Deadline: 03 August 2022

Anthropogenic and natural fires are an important component of the Earth system. Geographic location, fuel type, seasonality, and intensity of fire largely determine the sign and magnitude of feedbacks on the Earth system. This session aims to explore links between fire, vegetation, climate, air quality, and humans from the local to the global scale and determines how these interactions will change in a warming world. We encourage abstracts that explore the interactions of fires with the terrestrial biosphere and atmosphere using remote sensing, in situ observations, modeling, or an integrated approach with an emphasis on

  • Impacts of fire on weather and climate, atmospheric chemistry, and air quality
  • Role of fires in the carbon cycle and ecosystem functioning
  • Influence of humans on fire (and vice versa)
  • Changing nature of fire over millennia, and predictions for the future
