Impact Factor 2.133
Special Issue: Connections and Complexities in Drylands: New Perspectives for Understanding Transformative Landscape Change
The articles in this special issue are arranged in two parts. The first part deals with two particularly rapidly developing and vexing examples of transformative landscape change: forest die-off and invasion by non-native grasses. Both have resulted in land-cover changes that are large-scale, quite rapid and in many instances, unanticipated. The second part of this special issue comprises articles that focus on understanding and predicting the effects of transformative landscape change.

Seeking good peer review in geomorphology
Stuart N. Lane

This paper provides an extended guide to reviewing for ESPL in particular and geomorphology in general. After a brief consideration of both how we choose reviewers and why we hope that reviewers will accept, I consider what makes a fair and constructive review.

Engineering Global Climate Collection

The last few years have seen a developing interest from some climate scientists and technologists in efforts to deliberately manipulate the atmosphere, land or oceans to alter the course of future climate. These efforts have gained the attention of some governments, venture capitalists, NGOs, media platforms and public commentators. Deliberate engineering of global climate raises many questions, some of which are explored in the review articles in this special collection: What can historical precedents of weather modification tell us? How desirable do citizens perceive the manipulation technologies to be? How can they – how have they – been appraised? What ethical considerations would their research and implementation raise? And who governs such practices? This new collection in WIREs Climate Change sets out to answer some of these questions.
