In this paper we pointed out a hidden inequality in accounting for trade-related emissions in the presence of border carbon adjustment. Under a domestic carbon pricing policy, producers pay for the carbon costs in exchange for the right to emit. Under border carbon adjustment, however, the exporting country pays for the carbon costs of their...

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...
