Description

In the past several decades, the world has experienced fast urbanization, and this trend is expected to continue for decades to come. Urbanization modifies the Earth’s terrestrial surface, and therefore, has profound impacts on agricultural practices, energy balance, and hydrology from local to regional and even global scales and causes associated environmental problems. Urbanization will pose challenges for environmental sustainability with growing water, energy, and food demands. There is a growing need, from both the science and policy making communities, for science-based information and knowledge on urbanization and its environmental impacts from local to global scales. Improved understanding of urbanization can help us develop better practices in land use planning and management for sustainable urban development.

This session invites presentations focusing on challenges and opportunities in sustainable urbanization. Potential topics can include urbanization mapping and modeling, urban water and energy use, urban emissions, urban health, urban water-energy- food nexus, urban climate, urban ecosystem services, urban disaster assessment and management, sustainable urban planning, and applications of remote sensing and GIS in urban studies. We encourage studies that will advance our understanding of sustainable urban development. We would like to welcome any papers that showcase recent advances and original contributions in such topics.

Submission Procedure: The official abstract submission deadline for AAG is October 25, 2017. You will submit your participation/registration fee and abstracts online through AAG's website (www.aag.org). We would appreciate it if you can send us the abstract at your earliest time, and send your PIN.

Interested contributors should submit their abstract and PIN to either of the co-organizers:

Yuyu Zhou: yuyuzhou@iastate.edu
Bailang Yu: blyu@geo.ecnu.edu.cn
Wenze Yue: wzyue@zju.edu.cn
