With the advent of high-spatial resolution (HSR) satellite imagery, urban land use/land cover (LULC) mapping has become one of the most popular applications in remote sensing. Due to the importance of context information (e.g., size/shape/texture) for classifying urban LULC features, Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) techniques are...

A collection of recent and on-going activities at IGES were presented to WRI experts. The presentation focused on three themes, namely: (1) tools and data; (2) research and projects; and (3) Networks.

Peer-reviewed Article
In ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information

A new method was developed for mapping forest, agricultural, and urban land cover using remote sensing imagery. It is designed to better detect small land cover objects (e.g. small forest or agricultural patches) and monitor their change (e.g. fine-scale deforestation) using freely-available satellite imagery.

Discussion Paper

2014年11月12日、米中首脳会談後の共同声明において、米国と中国が、以下のような温室効果ガス(GHG)の排出削減目標を発表した。
o 米国:2025年までにGHG排出量を2005年比で26~28%削減
o 中国:2030年頃までに、なるべく早い時期にCO2排出量を頭打ち(ピークアウト); 一次エネルギー消費における非化石燃料の割合を2030年までに約20%
 本稿では、米中の2020年以降の温暖化対策目標について、既存文献で示される両国の排出経路シナリオと比較することにより、目標の野心度についての評価を行った。評価するに当たり、気温上昇2℃未満抑制に向けた排出経路との整合性、及び目標達成のための追加的な努力の必要性、という二つの評価軸を用いた。前者は環境十全性の視点から評価であり...

In Carbon Management

For effective and practical implementation of border carbon adjustment, it is crucial to determine the carbon content of imports/exports. In this paper we discussed two criteria. One is direct carbon emissions, which accounts for direct emissions generated from production. The other is embodied emissions which accounts for the total emissions...

International Studies Association West Conference 2012

Abstract
At the sixteenth Conference of the Parties (COP16) for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), countries agreed to limit the global mean temperature increase to below two degree Celsius compared to before industrialization. This decision was made together with an agreement to periodically review the adequacy of...
