Las comunidades de las ciudades necesitan considerar si la absorción del agua o los beneficios del enfriamiento son más importantes al diseñar los espacios verdes urbanos.
Irrigation-related cooling during summer months is overestimated by roughly 5 times, highlighting the need for climate models to accurately reflect local agricultural practices.
Los Himalayas han perdido 40% de su masa glaciar desde la Pequeña Edad de Hielo. El Este de Nepal y Bután han sufrido pérdidas de forma más acelerada.
Researchers link vulnerability to “atmospheric drought” associated with climate change.
On the basis of how much oxygen marine species need and how much is available, researchers predict extinctions comparable to those at the end of the Permian under a business-as-usual emissions scenario.
In a first-of-its-kind disaster prevention initiative, a meteorology-based landslide prediction system was developed as a crowdsourced science effort.
Western forest managers face a catch-22: They can keep carbon sequestered in trees by reducing controlled burns, but that creates denser forests at greater risk of going up in uncontrolled flames.
People who gather ground data on tropical forests are highly disadvantaged compared to the users of such data. A new paper suggests long-term collaborations as a path forward.
Researchers have developed a new analysis based on a river’s catchment area as opposed its length.
City communities may need to consider whether water absorption or cooling benefits are more important when designing urban greening.
