Scope: The nature-based solutions (NbS) aim to achieve co-benefits for human well being and ecosystems through effective actions, including practices and policies, in the management of natural and modified ecosystems. The application of NbS causes impacts on the carbon, water, and energy cycles among the Earth systems. In turn, the efficiency of NbS is influenced by environmental perturbations resulting from the dynamic interplay of climate change, societal factors, and technology advancements. To acquire a comprehensive understanding of the benefits and tradeoffs associated with NbS, emerging efforts are required for the integration of various methodologies, including direct measurements, remotely sensed information, Earth System Models (ESM), up-to date analyses such as meta-analyses, numerical simulations, artificial intelligence, and cross-disciplinary investigations.
This special issue for Environmental Research Letters (ERL) provides an interdisciplinary outlet to advance the understanding of the effective roles of NbS by exploring feedback mechanisms within Earth systems. While not exhaustive, the proposed topics for this collection include: Responses of diverse ecosystems to the climate, environment, and societal changes. The role of NbS in enhancing land carbon sink strength and improving water quality and quantity, and other ecosystem services. State of art in integrating cross-site and long-term measurements and modeling of ecosystem fluxes. Advances in big data fusion, modeling, and integration technology through ESM and machine learnings. The economical and societal benefits of NbS in context of ecosystem functions and dynamics. Mechanistic understanding of coupling human and nature systems through the lens of climate, environment, and ecosystem interactions.
Submission process Focus issue research articles must be of the same format and meet the same publication criteria as regular research Letters in ERL. They are also subject to the same rigorous review process, high editorial standards and quality/novelty requirements. Read the about the journal page for more information before submitting. For more comprehensive information on preparing your article for submission and the options for submitting your article, see our author guidelines. Please submit your article via our online submission form. You should submit the appropriate article type for your submission then choose 'Focus on Nature-based Solutions Toward Sustainability' from the drop-down menu. We encourage authors to include a cover letter, or separate justification statement (in the 'File Upload' step) outlining how your article meets the requirements of ERL, and why it is suitable for consideration in the journal, and focus issue (see the 'special requirements' section).
Deadline for submissions: 31 March 2024
