Both hydropower dams and global warming pose threats to freshwater fish diversity. While the extent of global warming may be reduced by a shift towards energy generation by large dams in order to reduce fossil-fuel use, such dams profoundly modify riverine habitats. Furthermore, the threats posed by dams and global warming will interact: for...

This study provides a computationally-simple method to annually update existing national forest maps and model future forest change. It involves integrating national forest maps and global tree cover maps to monitor annual forest change, and then modeling future change by linear extrapolation of the historical trend.

Biofuels are often presented as an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels, however, empirical analysis that is widely reported in the literature shows that biofuel production can have negative environmental and social impacts. The potential for these negative impacts can be avoided through careful planning of biofuel feedstock...

A new method was developed for mapping forest, agricultural, and urban land cover using remote sensing imagery. It is designed to better detect small land cover objects (e.g. small forest or agricultural patches) and monitor their change (e.g. fine-scale deforestation) using freely-available satellite imagery.

To develop their REDD+ strategies, the UNFCCC has encouraged developing countries to identify land use, land use change and forest activities, in particular those that are linked to the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation, and to their potential contribution to the mitigation of climate change (UNFCCC 2010). For Thailand, this means...
Discussion Paper
2014年11月12日、米中首脳会談後の共同声明において、米国と中国が、以下のような温室効果ガス(GHG)の排出削減目標を発表した。 o 米国:2025年までにGHG排出量を2005年比で26~28%削減 o 中国:2030年頃までに、なるべく早い時期にCO2排出量を頭打ち(ピークアウト); 一次エネルギー消費における非化石燃料の割合を2030年までに約20%  本稿では、米中の2020年以降の温暖化対策目標について、既存文献で示される両国の排出経路シナリオと比較することにより、目標の野心度についての評価を行った。評価するに当たり、気温上昇2℃未満抑制に向けた排出経路との整合性、及び目標達成のための追加的な努力の必要性、という二つの評価軸を用いた。前者は環境十全性の視点から評価であり...
