Lead isotope trends and sources in the atmosphere at the artificial wetland
Xinfeng Wang –– Major sources of lead in the atmosphere over wetland in China during different seasons are identified by using the advanced stable isotope method.
A novel GIS-based ensemble technique for flood susceptibility mapping using evidential belief function and support vector machine: Brisbane, Australia
Marco Cavalli –– The ensemble method proposed in this work can help to improve the accuracy of flood susceptibility maps.
Expanding walls and shrinking beaches: loss of natural coastline in Okinawa Island, Japan
Xavier Pochon –– This innovative study used GIS and remote sensing technologies to measure the extension of coastline alterations in Okinawa, Japan, over the last 50 years. This approach offers great values for conservation efforts and coastal planning.
Rapid response to anthropogenic climate change by Thuja occidentalis: implications for past climate reconstructions and future climate predictions
Bruce Lieberman –– The paper deals with the various proxies that can be used to examine climate change, as well as the effects climate change has had and will have on extinct and extant floras. This paper will generate a lot of interest and debate and should be well cited in the sure to be extensive future literature on this very important topic.
Measuring the dispersion of rainfall using Bayesian confidence intervals for coefficient of variation of delta-lognormal distribution: a study from Thailand
Jianhua Xu –– Readers will be interested in this article
Geographic context affects the landscape change and fragmentation caused by wind energy facilities
Roger Jones –– It quantifies what we know qualitatively about siting wind farms, and will be of interest to researchers and industry
Herbivore corridors sustain genetic footprint in plant populations: a case for Spanish drove roads
Rodolfo Jaffé –– Important contribution highlighting the importance of herbivore corridors and mobile pastoralism for reducing inbreeding levels and facilitating long-distance dispersal in plants.
Evaluation of extracellular polymeric substances extracted from waste activated sludge as a renewable corrosion inhibitor
Ning Yan –– The application of EPS for anti-corrosion application is quite new.
Effect of insecticide formulation and adjuvant combination on agricultural spray drift
Todd Anderson –– Spray drift is an important issue currently. While most of the recent data has been for herbicides, it is good that insecticide drift is also being addressed.
Vehicle emission and atmospheric pollution in China: problems, progress, and prospects
Xinfeng Wang –– This review summarizes the impacts of vehicle emissions on air quality in China, the existing countermeasurers, and the future prospects, providings an important reference for control of air pollution caused by traffic sources in developing contries.
