The Carnian Pluvial Episode was a phase of global climatic change and biotic turnover that occurred during the early Late Triassic. In marine sedimentary basins, the arrival of huge amounts of siliciclastic sediments, the establishment of anoxic conditions, and a sudden change of the carbonate factory on platforms marked the Carnian Pluvial Episode. The sedimentary changes are closely associated with abrupt biological turnover among marine and terrestrial groups as, for example, an extinction...

Soil organic carbon (SOC) stock is one of the most important carbon (C) reservoirs on the Earth and plays a vital role in the global climate change. However, SOC stock at a regional scale is still uncertain due to the lack of soil bulk density data, differences in sample depth, geography, and soil properties. Based on data from 78 soil profiles, we estimated SOC density (SOCD) and its distribution at 0–100 cm depth of croplands in three typical Counties (Lindian, Hailun and Baoqing Counties)...

The environmental attitude associated with sustainable development includes the belief that the manipulation of ecosystems has a negative effect on natural evolution. Therefore, monitoring and controlling mechanisms have been developed for urban construction activities. Accordingly, urban green building ranking systems have been established around the world. However, Iran does not have its own system, nor does it follow any existing system due to political relationship issues. Through...

Production of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from peatland soil is controlled by rates of organic matter decomposition; soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition is influenced by the quality of the SOM and the soil temperature. This study determined the effect of increasing temperature and SOM quality on rates of greenhouse-gas production in lab incubations from peat soils formed under different plant functional types found in temperate rich and poor fens of southern Ontario, Canada.

In this paper the storage potential of soils within a heterogeneous structured hummocky young moraine region for organic carbon is discussed with respect to climate change and erosion. Erosion is discussed to be either a global terrestrial CO 2 sink or a source. In hummocky young moraine regions of North East Germany water and tillage erosion are steadily changing factors since the beginning of arable landuse in ancient times. For such topographically complex landscapes the knowledge on soil...

The dynamics of soil respiration are crucial in understanding carbon cycling and its feedback to climate change. However, little information exists regarding the response of soil respiration to precipitation variation. To examine the response of soil respiration to precipitation variation through biogeochemical regulation, a manipulative field experiment was conducted along a precipitation gradient (−60%, −40%, −20%, CK = natural precipitation, +20%, +40% and +60%) in a native desert...

Given the potential impacts of global warming, such as increases in temperature and the frequency/severity of hypoxia in marine ecosystems, it is important to study the impacts of these environmental challenges on sea-cage reared aquaculture species. This study focuses on the sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria), an emerging aquaculture species that has a unique ecology in the wild. For instance, adults inhabit oxygen minimum zones and cool waters at depths up to 1500 m. Using Atlantic salmon (Salmo...

Global climate change is accompanied by changes in the amounts of ice and snow. These changes have both a direct effect on the plant community structure, primary productivity and carbon cycle and an indirect influence on the belowground ecosystem. However, the effects of changes in snowpack on the soil environment and belowground ecological processes, particularly in soil microbial communities are still poorly understood in alpine meadows. We conducted a field study of controlled snowpack in...

Carbon (C) sequestration in soil is recognized as a possible solution for climate change mitigation. Different land uses may alter carbon sequestration in soil. In the semiarid regions of central Iran, during the last decades, land use changes from native cover to farmlands have altered the C sink role of soil to a source of CO2 emission to the atmosphere. This study was conducted to evaluate and compare changes and the potential of soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration from 1988 to 2014,...

One-dimensional coupled ecological-hydrodynamic numerical models of lakes require extensive calibration of their chemical and biological parameters. Application of these models to future projections relies on the time invariance of the calibrated model parameters and of the adopted schematisation. This is mere speculation for real ecosystems, so that it is relevant to explore the limits of coupled models over extended periods. To date, almost all applications in literature have been calibrated...

At the same time, climatic conditions in many MTE regions are projected to become both drier and hotter, and fire intervals shorter.

This paper examines the effectiveness, efficiency, and economy-wide impacts of a carbon tax, fuel tax, and some policy mix options for Sri Lanka and Pakistan using their global commitments to reduce carbon emissions. The results indicate that the carbon tax is best for Sri Lanka to reduce emissions by 7% from 2010 levels. This policy shows the least welfare deteriorating effect with increases in real GDP by 0.2%. Although Pakistan has a distorted market of energy subsidies and taxes, the carbon...

We conducted two series of face-to-face interviews with the same ten. The first interview set used direct aggregation...

Models are useful tools for predicting the impact of global change on species distribution and abundance. As ectotherms, fish are being challenged to adapt or track changes in their environment, either in time through a phenological shift or in space by a biogeographic shift. Past modelling efforts have largely been based on correlative Species Distribution Models, which use known occurrences of species across landscapes of interest to define sets of conditions under which species are likely to...

China has committed to a peak in carbon dioxide emissions circa 2030. However, current policies cannot meet this ambitious goal. Adjusting its energy-intensive, heavy and chemical-based industrial structure is not only the main way China can change its economic growth pattern but also a key policy strategy to achieve its carbon emission peak goal. In addition to carbon emissions goals, economic growth and employment security must be considered for China's development in the context of...

Climate protection concepts for cities and regions are designed to establish CO2 emission baselines and develop measures for climate change mitigation. Up to now such concepts were based on aggregated consumption and emission data and only qualitative estimations of the effect of measures were possible. To better quantify the impact of mitigation measures, a large amount of data on the building stock is needed. Very powerful analysis possibilities for an energetic and economic evaluation of...

Because of their Global Climate Change contributions, it is desirable to reduce the amount of the global CO 2 emissions. One of the ways to accomplish this is the substitution of coal with renewable energy sources, most notably wind and solar. However, the availability of wind energy and of insolation does not follow the diurnal and annual demand patterns of electric power. The large-scale substitution of coal with wind and solar significantly shifts the demand for the rest of the power...
