Preface to the Special Issue on “Earth Observations and Societal Impacts”

Abstract

We would like to present, with great pleasure, a special issue volume on “Earth Observations and Societal Impacts”. This special issue is part of the the journal Terrestrial, At- mospheric and Oceanic Sciences (TAO), and is devoted to The International Conference on Earth Observations and Societal Impacts (ICEO&SI; http://www.iceo-si.org.tw/) which is an annual conference sponsored by the Taiwan Group on Earth Observations (TGEO; http://tgeo.org.tw/) since 2011.
This special issue is based primarily on the papers pre- sented in ICEO&SI 2013 to summarize the most recent de- velopments and ideas in Earth environment observations, in- cluding atmospheric, oceanic, geophysical research, healthy environmental conditions for humans, plants and animals and their societal impacts.
