Because the whole world is under threat from climate change, 195 countries decided to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by adopting the “Paris Agreement”. The mitigation and utilization of GHG have become the most significant challenges in the area of green energy research. One feasible solution is the reforming of methane with carbon dioxide (called dry reforming of methane, DRM) that converts the two main GHGs (CO 2 and CH 4 ) into synthesis gas (H 2 and CO), which is a resource for...

Variation in vegetation can provide fundamental information about environment and resources management, especially in mining areas with vulnerable ecosystems. Research has demonstrated that vegetation patterns across river basins, plateaus, and mountains have been affected by climate change. However, variation in vegetation caused by natural conditions and mining activities in arid and semiarid mining areas is rarely examined. Using the Yushenfu mining area as a case study, based on the Sen +...

This paper investigates whether female political representation in national parliaments influences climate change policy outcomes. Based on data from a large sample of countries, we demonstrate that female representation leads countries to adopt more stringent climate change policies. We exploit a combination of full and partial identification approaches to suggest that this relationship is likely to be causal. Moreover, we show that through its effect on the stringency of climate change...

There is increasing evidence that abrupt vegetation shifts and large-scale erosive phases occurred in Central Africa during the third millennium before present. Debate exists as to whether these events were caused by climate change and/or intensifying human activities related to the Bantu expansion. In this study, we report on a multi-proxy investigation of a sediment core (KZR-23) recovered from the Congo submarine canyon. Our aim was to reconstruct climate, erosion and vegetation patterns in...

Jasmonates (JAs) are important phytohormones that regulate a wide range of plant processes, including growth, development and stress responses. Jasmonate ZIM-domain (JAZ) proteins are transcriptional repressors in JA signaling. Overexpression of JAZ7 was found to confer drought tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana (A. thaliana), but the molecular mechanisms are not known. Using Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) quantitative proteomics and targeted metabolomics approaches, we found that 394 unique proteins and...

However, the roles of atmospheric evaporative demand [reflected by reference evapotranspiration (ET 0 )] and precipitation (P) anomalies in drought evolutions are still unclear. To that end, we revisited the evolution of the 2009–2011 SWC meteorological droughts quantitatively and comprehensively by quantifying the ET 0 and P...

Various natural and anthropogenic factors affect the formation of gleyed soil. It is a major challenge to identify the key hazard factors and evaluate the dynamic evolutionary process of soil gleyization at a regional scale under future climate change. This study addressed this complex challenge based on regional groundwater modelling for a typical agriculture region located in the Ganjiang River Delta (GRD) of Poyang Lake Basin, China. We first implemented in-situ soil sampling analysis and...

This study aims to clarify groundwater and stream water flow systems in the Geum River basin, Korea, which is an area with a crystalline basement using δ 18 O, δ 2 H, and 3 H. Stable isotopes of precipitation showed clear differences between dry and rainy seasons due to the Asian monsoon. Groundwater and stream water samples were collected in the dry and rainy seasons in three hydrographic zones of the upper, middle, and lower zones. The contribution of rainy season precipitation to...

Vietnam has abundant natural resources, but a high vulnerability to climate change. The Vietnamese government, therefore, has avddeclared its intention to encourage clean energy development. To achieve this, the cost of renewables needs to be competitive with fossil fuels. The purpose of this paper is to review past studies of the levelised international costs for various renewable energy resources and compare them to the costs of renewables in Vietnam. In Vietnam, there is evidence that the...

There is no doubt that organic matter plays an important role in shale gas accumulation and storage. Thus, successful evaluation and production strategies of organic-rich shale deposits require an understanding of the range of factors that contribute to the accumulation and preservation of organic matter in these deposits. This paper reports results of a multi-faceted study of two Ordovician–Silurian transition sections of the Upper Yangtze Platform of South China. Organic and inorganic...

With rapid increases in global food demand and production, oil palm expansion constitutes a major emerging challenge for forest conservation in Amazonia and other tropical forest regions. This threat is evident in the Peruvian Amazon, where local and national incentives for oil palm cultivation along with growing large-scale investments translate into accelerated oil palm expansion. Environmental sustainability of oil palm cultivation in the Peruvian Amazon is contingent on policy incentives...

Shifting environmental conditions are known to be important triggers of oyster diseases. The mechanism(s) behind these synergistic effects (interplay between host, environment and pathogen/s) are often not clear, although there is evidence that shifts in environmental conditions can affect oyster immunity, and pathogen growth and virulence. However, the impact of shifting environmental parameters on the oyster microbiome and how this affects oyster health and susceptibility to infectious...

Spatial planning of green infrastructure has become well established since the turn of the millennium. However, as a planning and policy concept alone it lacks the focus and immediacy that decision makers may be looking for to solve current problems associated with urban and extra-urban sustainability and resilience. In nature-based solutions decision makers can find the focus and immediacy they are seeking. We posit that these nature-based solutions used in combination with spatial green...

Coral reefs are subject to multiple stressors. Global stressors include climate change and ocean acidification, while local stressors include overfishing and eutrophication. Some stressors stem from land-based activities, like intensive agriculture or sewage production, while others are sea-based, like fishing or diving. Processes that aim to tackle coral degradation are transpiring on different levels. These include the UNDP's Sustainable Development Goal 14, and the Coral Triangle Initiative,...

Fossil pollen assemblages can assist in understanding biome responses to global climate change if there is reasonable probability that they represent specific biomes or bioregions. In this paper, we introduce a novel probabilistic presentation of pollen data and biome assignment. We apply a recently developed pollen-based vegetation classification method utilizing supervised machine learning to Southern Africa modern pollen assemblages. We present an updated modern pollen dataset from Southern...

Environmental change in the Arctic has been a primary topic of interest in recent years, particularly as it relates to the consequences of anthropogenic climate change. Sea ice is of particular importance in this context, both in terms of the effects of climate change in the Arctic, but also globally. Most studies examining the responses of various components of the biosphere to warming temperatures necessarily have a short temporal perspective. The purpose of this study was to use stable...

Climate change due to global warming has led to the expansion of deciduous forests. Increased product yields from hardwood provide an opportunity for the exploitation of biomass resources, such as bioethanol. In this study, the enzymatic hydrolysis of various hardwoods pretreated using the hydrogen peroxide–acetic acid (HPAC) method was evaluated. Glucose and xylose were fermented sequentially to improve the bioethanol production from hardwood. The HPAC pretreatment significantly reduced...

Southern Brazil's highland Araucaria forest is ancient, diverse and unique, but its future is under significant threat from 20th Century habitat loss and 21st Century climate change. Paleoecological studies have revealed that it expanded rapidly over highland grasslands around 1000 years ago, but whether this expansion was caused by human land use or climate change has been a topic of considerable debate. Discriminating between these potential drivers has so far not been possible with fossil...

Water vapor is the primary greenhouse gas of the Earth-atmosphere system and plays a vital role in understanding climate change, if correctly measured from satellites. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) can monitor water vapor retrievals at near-infrared (nIR) bands in the daytime as well as at infrared (IR) bands in both daytime and night time. However, the accuracy of IR retrievals under confident clear conditions (>99% probability) is much poorer than that of nIR...

This paper presents a framework for assessing the physical consistency between time-series of several satellite-based surface albedo and burned area products at global scale. The methodology evaluates the level of agreement of temporal change between these two Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) taking into account their uncertainties. Several configurations of surface albedo and burned area products, including the ones from MODIS Collection 6, Copernicus Global Land Service (C-GLS), Climate...
