Bridging Hydrology, Soil Science, and Ecology: Ecohydrology and Hydropedology

1 December 2007
This special section presents the results of interdisciplinary research related to two emerging and related disciplines that are focused on better understanding the interactions of soil, water and biological systems at the near- surface: hydropedology and ecohydrology. The results highlight the important linkages and feedback mechanisms between soil development, water movement, and the response of ecosystems at different spatio-temporal scales, through the use of field investigations and innovative methods of analyses. A deeper understanding of these linkages will inevitably improve our ability to address the complex environmental challenges of the 21st century.

A Census of Atmospheric Variability from Seconds to Decades 

The atmosphere varies naturally on all length scales from millimeters to thousands of kilometers, and on all time scales from seconds to decades and longer.  This special collection of Geophysical Research Letters synthesizes and summarizes that variability through a phenomenological census.  The collection brings together some of the most influential and definitive papers to have been published in this journal in recent years.  The topics covered include turbulence on time scales of seconds and minutes, gravity waves on time scales of hours, weather systems on time scales of days, atmospheric blocking on time scales of weeks, the Madden–Julian Oscillation on time scales of months, the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation and El Niño–Southern Oscillation on time scales of years, and the North Atlantic, Arctic, Antarctic, Pacific Decadal, and Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillations on time scales of decades.  The collection is accompanied by a Commentary article, which provides an authoritative, concise, and accessible point of reference for the most important modes of atmospheric variability.
