Researchers reveal progress in role of organic and conservation agriculture in ammonia emissions and crop productivity in China
There is an increasing food demand with a growing population and limited land for agriculture. However, conventional agriculture with nitrogen (N) fertilizer applications is a key source of ammonia (N...
Researchers discover urbanization causes more heterogeneous spatial patterns over China during rainy season
Recent rapid urbanization worldwide resulted in increasing urban residents. Short-term (sub-daily) precipitation extremes are expected to be more frequent and intense than in the past as the global cl...
Tropical carbon loss doubles due to forest clearance
Researchers using multiple high-resolution satellite observations have shown a doubling of carbon loss due to forest clearance since 2001 across the tropics, a vitally important world ecosystem that s...
First-ever mapping of lacustrine algal blooms across entire globe
Algal blooms constitute an emerging threat to global inland water quality, yet the spatially and temporally detailed characterizations of lake algal bloom at the global scale remain unknown. Using 2.9...
