The human IMPRINT on land-atmosphere exchange in high latitudes


Human activity simultaneously impacts on the composition of and the interactions between atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are the main driver of changes in moisture supplied to and energy available at the land surface. At the same time, land use and land management modify biochemical and biophysical vegetation properties that govern energy and water fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere.
