Land degradation and desertification in drylands

The Desertwatch team  proposed a Session dedicated to desertification on the next EGU General Assembly 2012, within the Natural Hazards Programme Group. The session intends to be a forum for interdisciplinary exchange of research approaches and results, involving characterization of desertification causes and underlying factors, discussion on the linkages among desertification, global climate change and biodiversity loss, searching for reliable indicators, especially those of early-warning, and presentation of strategies for monitoring and combat desertification.

Call for abstracts are now open until 17th January 2012.
