Urgency of climate change may be understated in intergovernmental panel report, expert says

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report last week warning of the mounting effects of global warming on the seas, increasing temperatures and acidification, and on the world's melting ice. It noted the potential dangers from sea level rise, water shortages in glacier-fed rivers, declining and shifting fish stocks, and increased frequency and severity of storms...

Look to the ocean for climate change solutions

Humanity is exacting a terrible toll on the ocean. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will publish its Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate later this week. Its overarching message will be that global warming, combined with the negative impacts of numerous other human activities, is devastating our ocean, with alarming declines in fish stocks, the deat...

The relevance of using in situ carbon and nitrogen data and satellite images to assess aboveground carbon and nitrogen stocks for supporting national REDD + programmes in Africa

Abstract Background To reduce the uncertainty in estimates of carbon emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation, better information on the carbon density per land use/land cover (LULC) class and in situ carbon and nitrogen data is needed. This allows a better representation of the spatial distribution of carbon and...

How much blue carbon loss and recovery following land-use change?

How much blue carbon loss and recovery following land-use change? Comparing global systematic review and field assessments from Indonesian Papua mangroves The coastal mangrove forest is one of the blue carbon ecosystems and most efficient carbon sink ecosystems on earth. However, these carbon-dense wetlands are currently under pressure from major land-use and land-cover changes (LULCCs), wh...
