Abstract. High-spatial-resolution and long-term climate data are
highly desirable for understanding climate-related natural processes. China
covers a large area with a low density of weather stations in some (e.g.,
mountainous) regions. This study describes a 0.5′ (∼ 1 km)
dataset of monthly...
Abstract. Climate warming has been implicated as a major driver of recent catastrophic
wildfires worldwide but analyses of regional differences in US wildfires
show that socioeconomic factors also play a large role. We previously
leveraged statistical projections of annual areas burned (AAB)...
Abstract. Due to
its extension, geography and the presence of several underdeveloped or
developing economies, the Central Asia domain of the Coordinated Regional
Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) is one of the most vulnerable regions
on Earth to the effects of climate changes. Reliable...
Abstract. Obtaining climate grids describing distinct variables is important for developing
better climate studies.
These grids are also useful products for other researchers
and end users.
The atmospheric evaporative demand (AED) may be measured in terms of the
reference evapotranspiration ...
Abstract. Reduction of surface temperatures of the planet by injecting sulfate aerosols
in the stratosphere has been suggested as an option to reduce the amount of
human-induced climate warming. Several previous studies have shown that for a
specified amount of injection, aerosols injected a...
The aim of the
paper is to discover the student perceptions of climate changes, so the sample
including the Croatian students of economics has been used. The paper contains
the evaluation of the importance given to climate changes in relation to other
humankind problems, research on the perc...
Abstract. Historical lake water temperature records are a valuable source of
information to assess the influence of climate change on lake thermal
structure. However, in most cases such records span a short period of time
and/or are incomplete, providing a less credible assessment of change....
This study focuses on the vegetation dynamic caused by global environmental change in the eastern margin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (EMQTP). The Qinghai–Tibet Plateau (QTP) is one of the most sensitive areas responding to global environmental change, particularly global climate change, and...
Abstract. The springtime composition of the Arctic lower troposphere is to a large extent controlled by the transport of midlatitude air masses into the Arctic. In contrast, precipitation and natural sources play the most important role during summer. Within the Arctic region sloping isentro...
This article furthers the debate on the political implications of the Anthropocene – the most recent geological epoch marked by catastrophic environmental change – by engaging it through the lens of political theology. The article starts from the observation that discourses on the Anthropoc...
