This paper overviews the important interactions between ecosystem and atmospheric dynamics. Examples of suggested procedures to model these interrelationships are introduced. The concept of equilibrium versus non-equilibrium non-linear dynamics in the context of chaos is discussed. The paper concludes with a description of a parameterization of vegetation effects on atmospheric structure, including a model sensitivity simulation of the importance of land surface processes on this structure.
