Satellite data reveals that urban vegetation, especially urban forests, is the most important factor regulating Urban Heat Island intensity.
During severe Amazonia droughts when oceanic supply of moisture failed, the magnitude of rainfall reduction over Rondonia was moderated by enhanced moisture supply from upwind forests.
Satellite observations show how tropical forest carbon fluxes respond to changes in water from climate variability.
New research suggests an atmospheric connection between Arctic sea ice melt and anthropogenic aerosol pollution over the Tibetan Plateau.
New research indicates that nutrient loads delivered to South American ecosystems by dust originating in Africa are far lower than suggested in previous studies.
A recent increase in airborne dust has been attributed to both climate and land use, with human activity playing a substantial role, especially in summertime at low elevations.
Fire experiments on peatlands in Southeast Asia have identified previously unknown emissions patterns and could point to ways to detect these smoldering fires before they become too big to fight.
As extreme cold days wane, the northeastern United States has experienced an increase in mud days.
Mexico’s megadiverse biota challenge observation network design for efficient sampling, but novel methods can provide guidance and tests of representativeness.
