Walker [and others] -- Interactions of Arctic aerosols with land-cover and land-use changes in northern Eurasia and their role in the Arctic climate system / Irina N. Sokolik, Judith Curry, and Vladimir Radionov -- Interaction between environmental pollution and land-cover/land-use change in Arctic areas / John Derome and Natalia Lukina -- Summary and outstanding scientific challenges for land-cover and land-use research in the Arctic region / Garik Gutman and Chris O. Justice. This volume is a compilation of studies on interactions of land-cover/land-use change with climate in a region where the climate warming is most pronounced compared to other areas of the globe. The climate warming in the far North, and in the Arctic region of Northern Eurasia in particular, affects both the landscape and human activities, and hence human dimensions are an important aspect of the topic. Environmental pollution together with climate warming may produce irreversible damages to the current Arctic ecosystems. Regional land-atmosphere feedbacks may have large global importance. Remote sensing is a primary tool in studying vast northern territories where in situ observations are sporadic. State-of-the-art methods of satellite remote sensing combined with GIS and models are used to tackle science questions and provide an outlook of current land-cover changes and potential scenarios for the future. Audience: The book is a truly international effort involving U.S. and European scientists. It is directed at the broad science community including graduate students, academics and other professionals in this field.
