Abstract: Let $ k$ be an algebraically closed field, let $ K/k$ be a finitely generated field extension of transcendence degree $ 2$, let $ \sigma \in \operatorname{Aut}_k(K)$, and let $ A \subseteq Q = K[t; \sigma]$ be an $ \mathbb{N}$-graded subalgebra with $ \dim_k A_n < \infty$ for all $ n \geq 0$. Then if $ A$ is big enough in $ Q$ in an appropriate sense, we prove that $ \operatorname{GK} A = 3,4,5,$ or $ \infty$, with the exact value depending only on the geometric properties of $ \sigma$. The proof uses techniques in the birational geometry of surfaces which are of independent interest.
