  • Soil climate monitoring in Antarctica

    Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, has an area of about 14 million sq. km. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice, which averages about 2100 m thick. This vast ice sheet contains the earth’s largest fresh water reserve. Of the ice-free ground, only 0.3% is available for soils to form. Currently there are seven soil climate stations in Antarctica, which monitor a range of ambient ...

  • Better monitoring of environmental pollutants

    One of Mistra´s Idea Support projects has developed a new technique for measuring a material´s chemical activity, i.e., how it reacts with and influences organisms. The technique is simple, cheap and appropriate for both field and laboratory use. Several of the methods that are used for calculating how different chemical environmental pollutants impact organisms measure concentrations of such ...

  • Dry soils exacerbated 2006 heatwave in Northern France

    Dry soils and a lack of cloud cover help explain a major heatwave in France, concludes new research. The study indicates that the two drivers were separate, unlinked events that came together at the same time to worsen the 2006 heatwave. Its findings could allow heatwaves to be predicted more accurately to protect public health. Understanding and predicting heatwaves is increasingly important for ...

  • Mapping Earth`s soil moisture with NASA

    Professor Dara Entekhabi from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to lead a science team designing a NASA satellite mission to collect global soil moisture measurements and other data seen as key to improving weather, flood and drought forecasts and predictions of agricultural productivity and climate change. At present, scientists have no network for gathering soil ...

  • Urban green areas and roofs regulate temperature and reduce energy

    A new study highlights the positive effects of plants and trees in cities. Urban green areas provide shade and reduce temperature fluctuations, bringing average temperatures down. Covering roofs with plants, rather than black roofs, reduces the energy required to heat and cool buildings. The 'urban heat island' (UHI) effect is well-known. Many factors contribute to the formation of the UHI, ...

  • Rainforest monitoring network deployed in Amazon

    Using open-access software and power saving technologies, researchers have developed an easily deployed, low-cost network for monitoring large areas of the Amazon rainforest. This Peruvian study shows that environmental information, such as soil moisture and rates of photosynthesis, can be recorded and uploaded to the internet without having to make repeated visits to remote areas. The Amazon ...

  • Loss of soil carbon linked to climate change in England and Wales

    Soil and plants store around 5% of the world’s carbon, but carbon storage in some soils is in decline. Recent research has found that climate change accounted for 9–22% of carbon declines in organic soils in semi-natural habitats throughout England and Wales from 1978–2003. The researchers say monitoring soils rich in carbon should be a priority to ensure that more carbon is not ...

  • Middle East will suffer soil degradation due to climate change, says UN

    Agriculture in the Near East is likely to suffer losses because of high temperature, droughts, floods and soil degradation threatening the food security of many countries, the FAO has said. Hunger and malnutrition caused by climate change will most probably affect those who are already poor, malnourished or dependent on local food production, according to a report discussed at the FAO Regional ...

  • Decagon`s environmental stations allow for customized monitoring

    The ability to accurately measure environmental parameters on a local scale is becoming an increasing need worldwide, whether you’re a hydrologist, an environmental researcher, or even a farmer. It is evident now that the environmental conditions and forecasts for one location cannot always be extrapolated for nearby areas. Due to differences in terrain, elevation, and topography, a rain ...
