Book On Climate Change
Call for authors- book on climate change (land-uses and forestry)
we very happy to announce a new book project venture, an initiative with ***** science publishers inc. (ny) and the editing team including peers from brazil, spain, and australia. The new book is entitled land use, land-use change and forestry (lulucf), in reference to the unfccc framework (which is a starting point). This book is a compilation of 10-13 independent scientific articles, where each article is one chapter. Contributing authors must submit abstracts by august 15 (2013), and the full article by january 15 (2014). The contributions are in the format of scientific articles, but nevertheless there is flexibility for contributions (e.G., thesis, research, project, reviews, compilations, policy, discussions, etc). The abstract submission is about a 1 page long description of the proposed article and must include- title, names of authors, email contact information, affiliation, and draft abstract text (100-400 words) indicating the proposed idea for the article. The article will have a maximum of 10 pages and further guidance on formatting will be provided. Every and each abstract is very important to us, as non-selected abstracts are used to provide ideas to new books and all are invited again to take part in the coming books. There are no costs or revenues associated with being a contributing author.
Contact me for further information.

with the click of a computer mouse, the potential risks of rising sea levels will soon be searchable by zip code for all u.S. Coastal communities. An online mapping tool will show how much sea levels are expected to rise in each area, as well as the number of residents and buildings that could be flooded. Initially launched in march 2012 for new york, new jersey and florida, it will expand to cover new england on wednesday, the pacific states later this spring and the rest of the coastal u.S. By the end of summer. This is a brave new world. Rising seas are posing a totally new challenge to american ingenuity, says ben strauss, vice president for climate impacts at climate central, a non-profit group based in princeton, n.J. It used private foundation funding to create the surging seas database.
