News: Remote sensing technology makes it more convenient to obtain forest vegetation fire information

Forest is an important part of the earth's terrestrial biosphere. At present, the coverage area of all kinds of forest land in the world is about 5 billion hectares, accounting for about 1 / 3 of the land area. The distribution of these forests in the world is extremely uneven, of which Latin America is the largest, with a forest area of 550 million hectares, accounting for about 21% of the world's forest area; The second is North America, with a forest area of 470 million hectares, accounting for about 19% of the world's forest area.

News: A good idea: Compilation of forest vegetation map using remote sensing technology

With the continuous improvement of remote sensing satellite technology, its demand for practical application is more and more extensive, especially in forest management and map survey. The first and most important way to manage forests is to obtain correct and timely information about forests. This principle can identify the environment and extract its uses with high speed, high precision, and low cost through remote sensing science to determine planning.

News: Warming: Peatlands will store more carbon initially, but that will change

Peatlands are extremely effective at storing carbon, but an international study featuring a University of Queensland researcher has found climate change could stop that.

The group investigated how peatlands -- swamps and bogs with organic rich soils -- have responded to climate variability between 850 BCE and 1850 CE.

Associate Professor Patrick Moss, from UQ's School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, believes the research is critical in understanding how climate affects the absorption properties of peatlands.

News: In warming Arctic, major rivers show surprising changes in carbon chemistry

Over the past several decades, the Arctic has begun to show signs of significant ecological upheaval. The rate of warming in the Arctic is nearly twice the global average, and those changes are triggering a cascade of destabilizing environmental effects. Ice is melting, permafrost is thawing, and experts say fires in Arctic forests are as damaging as they've been in 10,000 years.

But new research suggests that the same factors driving the Arctic's changing climate are fueling a geological response that could play a small part in counteracting those changes' malign effects.

In two major arctic rivers, a changing climate and shifting human activities are having a surprising response.

News: Carbon reserves in Central American soils still affected by ancient Mayan deforestation

Deforestation is suspected to have contributed to the mysterious collapse of Mayan civilization more than 1,000 years ago. A new study shows that the forest-clearing also decimated carbon reservoirs in the tropical soils of the Yucatan peninsula region long after ancient cities were abandoned and the forests grew back.

The findings, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, underscore how important soils and our treatment of them could be in determining future levels of greenhouse gases in the planet's atmosphere.
