Biogeosciences (BG) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications, and review papers on all aspects of the interactions between the biological, chemical, and physical processes in terrestrial or extraterrestrial life with the geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. The objective of the journal is to cut across the boundaries of established sciences and achieve an interdisciplinary view of these interactions. Experimental, conceptual, and modelling approaches are welcome.
Over the past months our colleagues Katja Fennel and Wajih Naqvi have stepped down from their function as co-editors-in-chief and Tina Treude and Steven Bouillon have joined Biogeosciences as new co-editors-in-chief.
The authors measured element losses and impacts on water quality following a wildfire in Sweden. They observed the largest carbon and nitrogen losses during the fire and a strong pulse of elements 1–3 months after the fire that showed a fast (weeks) and a slow (months) release from the catchments.
