MAME (an acronym of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is an emulator application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten. The aim of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines; the ability to actually play the games is considered "a nice side effect".

This paper studies the impacts of renewable energy support policies on energy prices, fossil fuel supply and thus carbon emissions from fossil fuels.

But if the renewables are not yet competitive, the climate change impacts are often ambiguous and are sensitive to capacity constraints of renewables production and to the fossil fuel market structure. If the renewables do not have capacity...

Little is known about how the coral host and its endosymbiont interactions change when they are exposed to a sudden nonlinear environmental transformation, yet this is crucial to coral survival in extreme events. Here, we present a study that investigates the transcriptomic response of corals and their endosymbionts to an abrupt change in pH (pH 7.60 and 8.35). The transcriptome indicates that the endosymbiont demonstrates a synchronized downregulation in carbon acquisition and fixation...

The concern for climate change and energy consumption has increased the demand for renewable energy production considerably. Marine energy sources attract attention because of their high energy density. Wave energy is an attractive renewable energy source with large potential.

Groundwater/surface-water exchanges in streams are inexorably linked to adjacent aquifer dynamics. As surface-water temperatures continue to increase with climate warming, refugia created by groundwater connectivity is expected to enable cold water fish species to survive. The shallow alluvial aquifers that source groundwater seepage to headwater streams, however, may also be sensitive to seasonal and long-term air temperature dynamics. Depth to bedrock can directly influence shallow aquifer...

The combined effect of climate change and Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect is leading to a rise in air temperature in urban areas, including those with heritage value. Urban morphology and its effect on sun shading conditions in tropical cities is crucial to reduce UHI and improve outdoor thermal comfort. This paper presents a temporal-spatial analysis of the effect of courtyards geometry on their outdoor thermal conditions in a warm-humid climate. The assessment is based on numerical simulations...

Antidepressants, such as venlafaxine (VFX), which are considered emerging environmental pollutants, are increasingly more present in the marine environment, and recent evidence suggest that they might have adverse effects on fish behaviour. Furthermore, altered environmental conditions associated to climate change (e.g. warming and acidification) can also have a determinant role on fish behaviour, fitness and survival. Yet, the underlying interactions between these environmental stressors...

Since the fall in world oil prices in June 2014, the economic and political settings for fossil fuel subsidy reforms have changed. As in many developing economies, in South Africa oil price subsidies are criticized as an inefficient policy instrument because they hamper economic growth, contradict objectives of climate change mitigation and mainly benefit high income households which can afford to own a car. Public transportation services are the mobility option for poorer South African...

Mobile-source emissions are pivotal in quantifying the negative externalities of surface transportation, such as environmental pollution and climate-change, and in evaluating low-carbon traffic strategies. In such assessments, it is important to avoid prospective policy shortcomings. Hence, a wide range of sensitivities of mobile-source emissions must be understood, particularly from a traffic modeling standpoint. This paper takes a step in that direction and explores the effects of certain...

We use the Meme-tracking system to understand how phrases spread across news sources. We have observed how a meme gains momentum and loses popularity, and observed how the category of the meme affects its life. We begin by looking at various statistics from the frequency data to understand differences between the lifetime of memes across subject matter and media source, and look for methods to predict how the shape of the graph will change over time. Additionally, we consider the graph of news...

Arturo Lanz abandoned a career in pop music for one of uncompromising industrial – or repetitive meditation music, as he would put it – as Esplendor Geométrico in the early years of post-Franco Spain. Looking to Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire, he forged a sound that his compatriots didn’t get, but which made him something of a cult figure decades later, when a track was revived for the Minimal Wave Vol 1 compilation. Now living and working in Beijing, he divides his free time...

The controversy over how to improve the carbon balance assessment for the Russian national forests is discussed. According to the preliminary calculations, three factors are responsible for the underestimation of the carbon sink in Russian forests, up to ≈ 340 ± 75 million tons per year in total: 1. The methodology of assessments. 2. The methodological ambiguity of forest classification, which excludes some areas from managed forests and therefore from assessment, for instance, ≈ 200...

Many rural coastal regions are distinctly vulnerable to sea level rise because of their remoteness, isolation from central planning agencies, and poverty. To better plan for future sea level changes in these regions, an interdisciplinary approach to assess the social and environmental impacts of sea level rise and their dynamic feedbacks is important. In this paper, we use a socio-ecological system framework to investigate sea level rise impacts to the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula, a rural,...

Unusually warm or cool weather has a short-term influence on public opinion of “global warming.” This paper extends this idea by showing that both regional climate (average long-term temperature) and seasonal variation in average temperature predict variation in public skepticism about global warming. Analyses of both polling data and Google search volume data show that in regions with colder climates (both U.S. states and nations), there is more public skepticism about global warming. The...

The abundance of Atlantic salmon is declining throughout its geographical area. Fisheries and global warming were assumed as main drivers of the decline, and recent studies suggest that habitat changes in freshwater is a third contributor. Southern populations experience the greatest decline, and face the highest risk of extinction as global warming moves its thermal niche northwards. We analysed long-term catch data (1949–2013) from a salmon fishery in northern Spain, and examined its...

The green alga Codium fragile ssp. fragile (hereafter C. fragile) has long been assumed to outcompete and displace its native congeners via cryptic invasion. We analysed the population dynamics of the exotic C. fragile and native congeners and their relative abundance on intertidal shores in N-NW Spain. Our results did not support the existence of current competitive displacement by the exotic species. The presence of C. fragile was clearly seasonal, while the native C. tomentosum was more...

Not all estuaries are equally susceptible to anthropogenic perturbation. Microtidal estuaries with long residence times are intrinsically less robust than well-flushed macrotidal estuaries, facilitating the accumulation of contaminants. This promotes development of blooms of non-toxic and toxic phytoplankton, and hypoxia and anoxia may occur in deeper sections of the typically stratified water column. In Mediterranean and arid climates, high temperatures and low and/or seasonal rainfall can...

Hydrologic model input datasets such as climate, land use, elevation, soil, and geology information are available in a range of scales for use in water resources investigations. Smaller spatial and temporal scale input data allow groundwater recharge models to simulate more physically realistic processes and presumably result in more accurate estimates of groundwater recharge. Projected climate data are, therefore, often downscaled to smaller spatial and temporal scales for use in these models....
