★ [U05-04] The importance of monitoring the interactions between ecosystem and climate as a key activity in the Future Earth
Keywords:Future Earth, Interactions between ecosystem and climate, Tower flux observation, Policy on biological resources, Larch forest in the eastern Siberia, Continuous fiield monitoring
Therefore, scientific findings on natural processes are closely linked with both policies of environment and biological resources, and it is particularly important that the national policy should comprehensively face this linking. The history of tower-flux observations is very short, only about 10 years, and 'monitoring on the interactions between ecosystem and climate' based on it should continue for additional 50 years and more on an organizational basis.
However, it may be not fundamental that a new budget would be allocated to the flux monitoring in addition to the existing organized observations on meteorology, river flow, satellite, and so on. We must not aim at winning funding competitions, but our Future Earth, promoting transdisciplinary, should comprehensively reorganize the observation systems on Biosphere in response to the changing relationships of our human society to the global environment called as the Anthoropocene.
