Enhancing Ocean Color Observation from Space: A Look Forward to NASA’s PACE and GEO-CAPE Missions
Future NASA satellites will extend the reach of global ocean color observation and research.
A Proposal for Climate Change Adaptation at the Local Level in Costa Rica
The implementation of climate change adaptation strategies at the municipal level is fundamental for the integration of efforts that would otherwise leave actions uncovered, resulting in a slower, less effective, and more expensive adaptation process.
Pollutionwatch: The world's dirtiest cities
The most polluted rivers and streams in Europe
Leatherback Sea Turtles
The issues treated throughout the investigation root from the eminent danger of global warming, and analyses of several aspects of it, such as the loss of the polar ice caps, coastline erosion, and the changes in precipitation indexes. Then, the project focuses on the consequences inflicted on leatherback sea turtles (Dermochelys Coriacea) by the major changes on their environment.
An Application for Improving Air Quality (a Houston Case Study)
In this work, we focus on the surface layer scheme, which provides input to the land and surface sub-models to calculate surface heat, momentum and moisture fluxes that drive the planetary boundary layer schemes that determine near surface wind speeds.
