Multiresolution segmentation (MRS) is one of the most commonly used image segmentation algorithms in the remote-sensing community. This algorithm has three user-defined parameters: scale, shape, and compactness. The scale parameter (SP) is the most crucial one in determining the average size of the image segments generated. Since setting this...

Indicator-based approaches have been used extensively for measuring adaptation. Adopting participatory approaches helps in contextualizing the global level and generic indicators to suit the local-level conditions for measuring adaptation effectiveness. This paper discusses the application of a methodology for identifying a set of adaptation...

Developing Asia’s growing demand for fossil fuels not only adds pressure on the domestic economy of each country due to higher energy bills but also strangulates the region’s environmental health with the growing emissions. The need for poverty reduction and economic development simultaneously forces the region to continue to depend heavily on...

Korea’s domestic emissions trading scheme commenced in January 2015. It targeted mainly industrial and power sectors, and compelled companies to transform how they manage energy efficiency and mitigate GHGs. This study sets out to explore how Korean companies evaluated their allocation position and engaged in emissions trading in the first...

This article assesses Japan’s carbon budgets up to 2100 in the global efforts to achieve the 2 8C target under different effortsharing approaches based on long-term GHG mitigation scenarios published in 13 studies. The article also presents exemplary emission trajectories for Japan to stay within the calculated budget. The literature data allow for...

A remote sensing-based method was developed for mapping debris-covered glaciers. It is significant because it is difficult to get an accurate estimate of glacier extent in areas with rocky debris, but accurate glacier maps are important for monitoring impacts of climate change and for water resource management in arid regions.

Climate change is already a prominent issue during water-related negotiations or discussions such as water forums, conferences, or dialogues. But the same cannot be claimed in the case of climate change negotiations, where water issues are encountered intermittently or find their space in ex-post discussions, directly or indirectly. However,...

We developed a multiscale object-based classification method for detecting diseased trees (Japanese Oak Wilt and Japanese Pine Wilt) in high-resolution multispectral satellite imagery. The proposed method involved (1) a hybrid intensity–hue– saturation smoothing filter-based intensity modulation (IHS-SFIM) pansharpening approach to obtain more...

The benefits of organic agriculture have not been realized to its full potential even though the organic market has been steadily expanding due to rapid economic growth and increasing environmental and health concerns in Asia. Organic agriculture has largely been promoted under the umbrella of low chemical and environmentally friendly agriculture...
