The decarbonization of industrial energy consumption is critical for global climate change mitigation, and this process can bring multiple challenges, especially for regions at the early stage of industrialization. To explore the possible transitions of industry sector under 2-degree target, this paper applied a 14-region energy system model (Global TIMES) to analyze the transition pathways of industry sector. The socio-economic uncertainty was considered by introducing Shared Socio-economic...

Land surface temperature (LST) was derived from LANDSAT-8 scenes in the period...

Reducing power sector emissions in China is a critical step toward mitigating climate change and lowering health damages from air pollution. We conduct a discrete choice survey (N = 1060) among urban residents from 10 Chinese cities, assessing how individuals compare electricity source, cost, and reduction of emissions related to climate change or air pollution. Using observed air quality data, we also evaluate how pollution levels affect respondents’ support for different types of emissions...

The recruitment of marine invertebrate larvae to coral reef ecosystems is critical for the continued productivity of these highly biodiverse habitats. Despite such importance, little is known about temporal variation patterns of invertebrate larval recruitment in coral reefs ecosystems, aside from studies focused only on reef corals themselves. Given this knowledge deficiency, recruitment onto dead coral branches was monitored over a one-year period in the Central Mexican Pacific, and recruit...

The framework provided by the Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) theory allows the quantification of metabolic processes and the associated biological rates that are of interest for aquaculture, such as growth and feeding.

The obtained parameter set was used to validate the...

On the basis of 143 responses from experts and stakeholders from Germany, Austria, Spain, the Netherlands and the UK, we assess the perceived impact of a range of incentives for the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs). We find that the incentive that most respondents consider to have a positive impact is the development of charging infrastructure, with 75% stating so. This is followed by purchase subsidies, to narrow the difference in price of an EV and that of an internal combustion engine...

Downscaling simulations for emission scenario RCP8.5 with a regionally coupled ocean-atmosphere climate system model indicate a regime shift in the dynamics of Atlantic nutrient supply to the Northwest European Shelf. Reduced winter convection in the Northeast Atlantic leads to a substantial decrease in upper ocean nutrient concentrations. Yet, vertical mixing processes at the shelf break maintain a connection to nutrient-enriched subpycnocline water masses and decouple the nutrient supply to...

Maize growth in Northeast China is suffering from climate change (seasonal drought, cold springs) and low nutrient use efficiency caused by one-time fertilization.

A two-year field experiment was conducted to evaluate the potential of different drip fertigation methods for increasing maize yield, and water and nutrient...

Thousands of ancient agricultural terraced fields exist in ephemeral stream valleys in the central Negev desert. Their stone terrace walls captured runoff water, flowing from the surrounding hillslope catchments, to increase moisture in the loess soils of the terraced fields. Geoarchaeological research at the site of Horvat Haluqim discovered evidence for ancient farming and soil manuring in this arid desert region during various archaeological periods.

Agriculture and associated sectors have a significant impact on environment such as GHG emissions, depletion of mineral and fossil resources. Agriculture contributes 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions of which seed bed preparation has a significant share. It contributes 23–44% of total CO 2 emissions due to fossil fuel consumption and soil organic carbon oxidation. Increasing consciousness on environment and food security has created interest towards low-energy agriculture and reduction...

Capital-intensive industries consume fossil fuels for mass production with little concern for nature's assimilative capacity, which results in an accumulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Pollution abatement systems based on market-induced correctives and multi-national agreements works as ex-post remedial measures and have limited effectiveness in the reduction of GHGs. In this paper, we formulate the sustainable-structure-conduct-performance (S-SCP) paradigm as an ex-ante remedial measure by...

Under the background of global climate change, China has been confronted with the dual pressure of CO 2 emissions reduction and PM 2.5 pollution control. This research aims to explore the mechanism of changes in PM 2.5 emissions, which are the key airborne pollutants causing haze. Furthermore, it quantifies the impacts of CO 2 emissions reduction activities on PM 2.5 emissions reduction. This study takes aggregate PM 2.5 emissions instead of PM 2.5 concentration index as the research object....

Climate change and incorrect agronomic practices in crop management, before and after harvesting, can cause an increase in the annual quantity of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) contaminated corn production. The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of AFB1 contaminated corn for composting, in order to recover plant nutrients and degrade AFB1.

Determining and predicting species’ responses to climate change is a fundamental goal of contemporary ecology. When interpreting responses to warming species are often treated as a single physiological unit with a single species-wide thermal niche. This assumes that trailing edge populations are most vulnerable to warming, as it is here where a species’ thermal niche will be exceeded first. Local adaptation can, however, result in narrower thermal tolerance limits for local populations, so...

Climate change and urbanization strongly affect the variations of terrestrial net primary production (NPP), but the relative contributions of these two factors to NPP changes have not been determined yet (especially on a macroscale).

There are different trend identification methodologies in the literature, but almost all are for monotonic trend searches within a given hydro-meteorological time series partially at equal epochs or holistically over the whole record duration.

For this purpose, successive arithmetic average methodology (SAM) is proposed in this paper, first for a set of trends visual...
