Chinese scientists from Hefei Institutes of Physical Science developed a comprehensive monitoring system that is based on optics technology to monitor toxic and harmful gases for industrial parks.
Recently, researchers from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture (ISA), together with collaborators, identified different forest and land management strategies as well as their biomass carbon sinks from 2002 to 2017 in southern China by combing optical and low frequency passive microwaves satellite data. They also evaluated soil moisture trends from 2010 to 2017 for this area.
Recently. Prof. HU Yunfeng's team at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences used the Normalized Comprehensive Hotspots Index (NCH) to determine the spatial distribution of hotspots for desertification research based on the number of Chinese articles. The results indicated that the number of desertification studies in China has shown a general downward trend.
An international team from China, UK and USA proposed a new mechanism to understand the eastward shift and extension of ENSO-induced precipitation anomalies under global warming. They analyzed a large ensemble climate change simulation conducted by the Met Office in UK.
Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics conducted experiments with the latest version of a regional climate model, RegCM4.7. They compared the simulations of the model using different convective parameterization schemes, namely, Tiedtke and Emanuel.
To study the seasonal pattern of the 15N natural abundance (expressed as δ15N) in atmospheric NO3- and to determine its dominant factors, Prof. FANG Yunting and his colleagues from the Institute of Applied Ecology (IAE) collected precipitation in 2016 and 2017 from Shenyang city in northeastern China and measured the δ15N of NO3-.
