  • IGBP and Earth observation:
    a co-evolution

    The iconic images of Earth beamed back by the earliest spacecraft helped to galvanise interest in our planet’s environment. The subsequent evolution and development of satellites for Earth observation has been intricately linked with that of IGBP and other global-change research programmes, write Jack Kaye and Cat Downy .

Land Systems Research in Denmark: Background and perspectives

Danish Journal of Geography (2006)
Reenberg A (guest ed)
Vol 106; No 2

This special issue of the Danish Journal of Geography presents some of the Danish research activities which address themes and problem areas of importance for the Land System Science community. The papers are a subset of the works presented and discussed at the first workshop organized by the Danish Network for Land System Science (LaSyS) in October 2005. As such, it represents some of the theoretical and empirical insights that may constitute the jumping-off ground for a coherent Danish effort within the field of multidisciplinary analyses of coupled human-environmental systems.
