Dear LBA Participant,

Abstracts for the LBA special session of the Fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco (13-17 December 2004) are due by 23:59 UT on September 9. Because of the confusion with Universal Time (UT) and last minute overloads in the system, it is best to think of September 8 as the deadline.

Additional information about the session follows.
Carlos Nobre and I look forward to seeing you in San Francisco.

- Michael Keller

Special Session:
Abstracts Sought for All Areas of LBA

American Geophysical Union
San Francisco, California, USA
December 13-17, 2004

Convenors: Michael Keller, Carlos Nobre

Description: LBA is a cooperative multinational earth system science research project led by Brazil. The goal of LBA is to understand the role of Amazonia as a regional entity in the earth system. Amazonia is a region undergoing rapid changes in land use and land cover. Research in LBA evaluates the functions of Amazonia in the regional and global cycles of energy, water, carbon, trace gases, aerosols, and nutrient elements. LBA studies consider the natural forest, savanna, and wetland ecosystems of Amazonia and the effects of human induced land use changes on these ecosystems. LBA aims to create new knowledge relevant to understanding the effects of land use and climate changes on the sustainability of both managed and natural Amazonian ecosystems.

Abstract submission deadline: 9 September 2004, 23:59 UT
