Cost-effectiveness analysis of water-saving irrigation technologies based on climate change response: A case study of Ch
This study provides a cost-effectiveness analysis of four water-saving irrigation techniques that are widely implemented in China to address the impacts of climate change: sprinkler irrigation, micro-irrigation, low-pressure pipe irrigation and channel lining. The aim is to thoroughly understand the economic feasibility of water-saving irrigation as an approach to coping with climate change. Base ... read more >>
Water deficit is the main limiting factor for agricultural production in the dry regions of northern China. Previous studies on water–plant relationships in fruit trees have focused mainly on ecological, physiological and molecular responses to water stress at the leaf or tree-scale; few equivalent studies have been conducted at the ecosystem-scale. In this study, we monitored water vapour exchan ... read more >>
Uri Resnick, deputy consul general of Israel in Los Angeles, points out some facts that are often missed. The amount of water available to Palestinians on the West Bank has grown considerably since 1967. Per capita water usage by Israelis and Palestinians is converging. Israel is a pioneer in water reclamation, water efficiency, and desalination. ... read more >>
The goal of SimBethel is to upgrade the levee around Bethel Island to the highest safety standard. Players are responsible for their own levee section. They can upgrade their section out-of-pocket or build houses to generate revenue for improvements. However, without development it is almost impossible to win; there is not enough revenue generated to strengthen the levee. Players have to find a b ... read more >>
Assessment of Climate Change in the Southwest United States speaks broadly and clearly about climate and its effects on the people and landscapes of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, the U.S.– Mexico border region, and the lands of Native Nations.
A landmark study in terms of its coverage and analysis (and a synthesis of knowledge from some 120 contributing experts), the ... read more >>
