Call For Papers

Environmental Research Letters™ is delighted to announce that its Focus on Resiliency and Vulnerability of Arctic and Boreal Ecosystems to Environmental Change: Advances and Outcomes of ABoVE (the Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment), edited by Scott Goetz, Natalie Boelman, Abhishek Chatterjee, Roisin Commane, Joshua Fisher, Peter Griffith, Mike Goulden, John Kimball, Tatiana Loboda, Michelle Mack, Charles Miller, Sue Natali, Christopher Neigh, Brendan Rogers, Merrit Turetsky and Jennifer Watts, is now open for submissions. This on-going focus collection will address the influence and impact of environmental changes, including climate change, taking place across the high northern latitudes and their influence on Arctic and boreal ecosystems.

This is an on-going collection of articles, and it is open for submissions (invited or otherwise) from any ABoVE science team contributor, or any other contributor if they consider their article to meet the requirements listed on the link above.

Call Manuscripts

Special Issue in the journal Remote Sensing on “Remote Sensing of Dynamic Permafrost Regions”.

Soliciting manuscripts that use the multitude of remote sensing platforms and sensors available for describing permafrost region characteristics and dynamics. We welcome submissions that focus on multiple spatial and temporal scales as well as the integration of permafrost region field studies with remotely sensed data. We are particularly interested in submissions that deal with ice-rich permafrost landscapes and quantification of thermokarst and thaw-related landscape dynamics. Contributions that demonstrate the development of new techniques, data products, and/or highlight the challenges of remote sensing in permafrost regions are also encouraged.
