The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is accepting abstracts for the 2023 AGU Fall Meeting. This hybrid meeting will take place 11-15 December 2023 in San Francisco, California and online.

The following sessions are accepting abstracts:

SESSION B083: The Resilience and Vulnerability of Arctic and Boreal Ecosystems to Climate Change
Conveners: Elizabeth Embury Hoy, Abhishek Chatterjee, Nancy H. F. French, Michelle C, Mack, and Jonathan Wang

Climate change is unfolding faster in the high northern latitudes than anywhere else on Earth. These changes are impacting ecological processes directly, through warmer temperatures and changing precipitation, and indirectly, through increasing frequency of climate-driven disturbances such as wildfire, outbreaks of pests and pathogens, and permafrost thaw. Although some ecosystems are resistant or resilient to these changes, many are shifting to new states, altering the function of the Arctic-boreal region. This session invites contributions in terrestrial ecology and carbon cycle science that provide conceptual, regional, or global insights into the resilience and vulnerability of the Arctic-boreal region, including its wildlife and ecosystem services, to changing climate. Contributions may address any geographic area of this region. Conveners welcome studies that use in situ, airborne, and satellite remote sensing observations, and models, or some combination thereof, to conceptualize, detect, predict, or forecast the changing function of this region in the earth system.

SESSION GC071: Mountains in the Earth System
Conveners: Jeremy S. Littell, Stephanie A. McAfee, Charles H. Luce, and Meagan Oldfather

Mountains affect climatic, hydrologic, ecological, and socioeconomic processes in profound ways, both uniquely within mountainous landscapes and far from them in regions without mountains. Mountain processes can thus either exacerbate or moderate the regional impacts of global climate change, sometimes in places far from them, and provide a compelling laboratory for better understanding the workings of the Earth system and their implications for natural resources. Yet they are some of the most challenging systems in which to conduct science, and they often defy classification, generalization, and prediction due to their complexity, spatiotemporal variability, and sparseness of biotic and abiotic data. In this session, conveners invite participants to present integrated research on all aspects of mountain systems, particularly mountain climate change and climate variability, coupled hydroclimatic and/or ecoclimatic impacts, the role of mountain ecosystems in adapting to climate futures, and the future management or stewardship of mountain systems.
