Dr Jenny Stocker (CERC) co-authored a recently published journal article that explores the sensitivities of theADMS-Urban Temperature and Humiditymodel predictions of local urban temperatures to input parameters, using London's Olympic parkland as a case study. In particular, the land use parameters were modified to reflect building materials as well as functional types, causing up to 3°C differences in modelled temperatures; also, the sensitivity of local temperatures to wind speed was assessed. Further work will be carried out to evaluate the input parameters against temperature measurements in Kuala Lumpur under the projectDisaster Resilient Cities: Forecasting Local Level Climate Extremes and Physical Hazards for Kuala Lumpur. The paper is freely availableonline.
By Theresa DuqueLimiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels will require severely cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. Doing so calls for the immediate, large-scale adoption of renewable energy like solar and wind, electrified transportation, energy-efficient systems, alternative fuels, and carbon capture and storage technologies across all sectors globally. This is one of the key messages in the "Synthesis Report of the Sixth Assessment Report" released this week...

Last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it was adding the Ochoa Fertilizer Co. site in Guánica, Puerto Rico to its Superfund National Priorities List (NPL). The move allows EPA to protect the nearby community where releases of contamination could pose a significant human health and environmental risk.
According to EPA:
The Ochoa Fertilizer Co. site includes a former fertilizer manufacturing facility near Guánica Bay in Guánica, Puerto Rico. The facility includes...
