Dear AGU Community,
A newly opened special collection across 10 AGU journals, entitled Fire in the Earth System, will bring together new research on physical and biogeochemical processes associated with landscape fires, implications for human and ecosystem health, effects on water resources and critical infrastructure, fires in the wildland-urban interface, the use of prescribed fire and other mitigation strategies, and modeling efforts to characterize potential future fire regimes in a changing world.
We solicit manuscripts on research representing new advances in understanding these and other aspects of fire, and we especially encourage cross-disciplinary consideration of fire-related processes. The manuscript-submission window will remain open until May 2021 to allow for the inclusion of findings from the 2020 (northern-hemisphere summer) and 2020–21 (southern hemisphere summer) fire seasons.
This is a joint collection organized by AGU editors in the following journals: Earth's Future, Earth and Space Sciences, GeoHealth, Geophysical Research Letters, Global Biogeochemical Cycles, JGR Atmospheres, JGR Biogeosciences, JGR Earth Surface, Reviews of Geophysics and Water Resources Research. Manuscripts may be submitted to any of the 10 AGU journals participating in this Special Collection by selecting "Fire in the Earth System" from the drop-down menu in the Special Section field of the submission form. Papers proposed to be submitted to Reviews of Geophysics should be initiated by contacting that journal's editorial office to solicit an invitation.Submission Deadline: 08 May 2021Special Section Organizers:Amy East, Editor-in-Chief of JGR: Earth's SurfaceAmir AghaKouchak, Editor-in-Chief of Earth's FuturePeter Fox, Editor-in-Chief of Earth and Space ScienceGabriel Filippelli, Editor-in-Chief of GeoHealthFabio Florindo, Editor-in-Chief of Reviews of GeophysicsCharles Luce, Editor of Water Resources ResearchHarihar Rajaram, Editor-in-Chief of Geophysical Research LettersPeter Raymond, Editor-in-Chief of Global Biogeochemical CyclesLynn Russell, Editor of JGR: AtmospheresCristina Santin, Associate Editor of JGR: Biogeosciences
