A Bayesian, optimal estimation evaluation of state-of-the-art methane inventory with satellite-based emissions from 2009 to 2018 finds substantial differences for livestock, rice, and coal emissions.
Climate projections are uncertain because we don’t exactly know how the climate system responds to human actions, but combining interdisciplinary results can reduce uncertainty in future planning.
A framework is proposed for urban forest management to mitigate heat exposure, lessen drought issues, and conserve water use for urban heat mitigation and resilience in environmentally stressed cities.
Sea spray aerosols play a critical role in atmospheric processes. A new approach is in strong agreement with observations, paving the way for improved models of atmospheric aerosols of oceanic origin.
A cascade of land-atmosphere interactions resulting from a winter heatwave in Siberia led to significant summer impacts that further exacerbated the heatwave effects on the region.
Data scarcity of traditional observations cannot reveal whether surface temperature capture the potential for urban heat stress. This study improves the dataset with 40,000 citizen weather stations.
A decrease in emissions of ozone precursor gases during the COVID-19 economic downturn likely explains the unusual reduction in ozone concentrations observed during the spring and summer of 2020.
