Multiscalar Energy-Land-Water Interactions

Energy sustainability is multiscalar, involving energy-land-water interactions at scales ranging from cellular to global. Interactions within and among scales largely will define the resiliency of different energy sustainability strategies; thus, questions must be scale aware and answers appropriately scalable.
