The Biosphere: A decadal vision

Peterson, D.L., Curran, P.J., Mlynzcak, M. and Miller, R. (2003) The Biosphere: A decadal vision In Papers in proceedings of IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium. IEEE. 145 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper focuses on biosphere-climate interactions including the influences of human activities. Recognizing this is only one aspect of biospheric processes, this places an emphasis of those biogeochemical processes that have a profound effect on numerous other aspects of the biosphere and the services it provides, services which are critical to sustaining life on Earth. And, the paper will focus on the various scientific aspects of assessing the availability of fresh water, including its sensitivity to climate variance and land use changes. Finally, this paper hopes to emphasize the potential role that greatly expanded space observations and interactive modeling can play in developing our understanding of Earth and its living systems.
