USAID Assists the Federated States of Micronesia and Palau to Secure $10.4 Million for Climate Change Adaptation

The U.S. government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), supported capacity building efforts in the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of Palau, which in turn helped to secure $10.4 million in climate change-related grants from the Green Climate Fund (GCF). This funding will help the people of these two countries to be safer and more resilient to the impacts...

Using prescribed burn fire severity assessments to estimate postburn hydrologic risk

Research conducted via the Australian Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre (BCRC) developed methods for assessing postfire hydrologic risk to human life, infrastructure, and water quality. End users of BCRC products identified the project for utilization, and a small team of practitioners and researchers was established. The utilization team developed a three-phase plan. Phase one was an Australia...

Effect of high levels of CO 2 and O 2 on membrane fatty acid profile and membrane physiology of meat spoilage bacteria

Abstract The membrane is the major protective barrier separating the cell from the environment and is thus important for bacteria to survive environmental stress. This study investigates changes in membrane lipid compositions and membrane physiology of meat spoiling bacteria in response to high CO2 (30%) and O2 (70%) concentrations, as commonly used for modified atmosphere pack...

Climate adaptation [Chapter L.]

Average annual temperature over the contiguous United States has increased by 0.7 degrees Celsius (°C; 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) for the period 1986-2016 compared to 1901-1960 (Vose and others, 2017). Warming temperatures, increased frequency of heat waves, and possibly drought have likely contributed to longer fire seasons, more extreme fire weather, and consequently, larger amounts of sagebr...
