The response of land surface phenology (LSP) to the urban heat island effect (UHI) is a useful biological indicator for understanding how vegetated ecosystems will be affected by future climate warming. However, vegetation cover in rural areas is often dominated by cultivated land, whose phenological timing is considerably influenced by...

Policy Report

Open waste burning is a widespread practice that is provoked by a lack of systematic waste collection, the unavailability of other disposal options, and inadequate land for the final disposal of the collected waste, especially in low- and middle-income countries. From a global perspective, two billion people have no waste collection at all, and the...

Satellite remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) have revolutionalized the mapping, quantifying, and
assessing the land surface processes, particularly analyzing the past and future land use-land cover (LULC) change patterns.
Worldwide river basins have observed enormous changes in the land system dynamics as a result of...

In Nature-Based Solutions

More than 90 systematic reviews have been conducted on the topic of nature-based solutions for climate change adaptation (NBS-CCA). These prior reviews, however, are scattered across more than 45 different peer-reviewed journals and gray literature sources, making it difficult to follow all of the knowledge generated and remaining research gaps. In...

Detailed Land-Use and Land-Cover (LULC) information is of pivotal importance in, e.g., urban/rural planning, disaster management, and climate change adaptation. Recently, Deep Learning (DL) has emerged as a paradigm shift for LULC classification. To date, little research has focused on using DL methods for LULC mapping in semi-arid regions, and...

Land use and land cover change (LULCC) is among the most apparent natural landscape
processes impacted by anthropogenic activities, particularly in fast-growing regions. In India, at present,
due to the impacts of anthropogenic climate change, supplemented by the fast pace of developmental
activities, the areas providing the highest agricultural...
