What killed Frame Lake? A precautionary tale for urban planners

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Bruno Marino –– The encroachment of human activity on natural systems is a complex interplay of events recorded through time and deposition of proxy indicators. "Who Killed Frame Lake.." is an iconic journey through time for the lake and its signatory participants. The future and remediation of Frame Lake is now in the hands of planners who may benefit from this example of human/nature interaction.
Suitable oasis scales under a government plan in the Kaidu-Konqi River Basin of northwest arid region, China

Editor rating: 9 / 10

Modelling daily water temperature from air temperature for the Missouri River

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Jacyra Soares –– The river air-water temperature relationship was investigated by developing three different machine learning models and three standard models. The model results can have important applications such as to support river recovery management plan and environmental impact statement analysis.
