Atmosphere – Biosphere Interactions

The terrestrial biosphere covers approximately 30% of the Earth’s surface, and vegetation plays an important role in the interaction between the land surface and the physical and chemical atmosphere. The biosphere is a living and dynamic component of the Earth System, and is constantly responding to the world around it, affecting atmospheric chemistry, air quality and the regional climate.

Climate & Space research on biosphere-atmosphere interactions includes both experimental and modeling studies on topics such as the emissions of trace gases from the biosphere, atmospheric deposition of gas and particle phase species, and boundary layer meteorology.
