The Ganges basin provides essential water for drinking, irrigation, industrial use and power generation. Global climate change will affect the water availability in the basin and inevitably intensify the competition for water among major users, particularly from thermal power generation. Knowledge on the spatial distribution of water supply-demand...

地球温暖化の主因である化石燃料を削減するカギは電力の発生方法である。1990年代以降、電力の低炭素化は進んでいる。世界的に風力発電の普及が進んでいるが、OECDヨーロッパでは、洋上風力発電の普及が目覚ましく、特にデンマークが先導している。デンマークでは1991年に世界初の沖合風力発電ファーム(OWF)が運開し、大型化も進んだ。2010年代に入るとヨーロッパ周辺諸国にもOWF、OWFの大型化が進んだ。世界的に再生可能エネルギー化が進んでいるが、特に太陽光発電と風力発電が目立っており、天候により出力は左右されるものの開発ポテンシャルは大きく、変動電源(VRE)と呼ばれる。日本の電力システムは世界最高水準にあるが、VRE導入は世界から大きく遅れている。国土の適地は少ないが、広大な排他的経済水域...

第五次環境基本計画は,環境・経済・社会問題が相互に連関しているという認識のもと,それを解決するために,持続可能な開発目標(SDGs)およびパリ協定の採択という時代の転換点を契機とする新たな文明社会へのパラダイムシフトを要請している.本稿は,このようなパラダイムシフトにつながる政策として,第五次環境基本計画の重点戦略を支える「地球温暖化対策計画」(2016年5 月13 日閣議決定)の長期目標である2050 年までに80%の温室効果ガス(GHG)の排出削減を達成することを目的とした本格的な炭素税導入を核としたグリーン税制改革を取り上げ,グリーン税制改革によって豊かな暮らしを維持すると同時に大幅なGHG 排出削減を達成することが可能であることを示した.

Governments are increasingly seeking low-cost ways to curb residential energy use. This article examines the effect of one such innovative approach to energy savings in Bogor, Indonesia: a prepaid electricity meter system. The Bogor prepaid system requires households pay up front for their electricity as the meter tracks consumption and credit. By...

Developing countries must submit forest reference emission levels (FRELs) to the UNFCCC to receive incentives for REDD+ activities (e.g. reducing emissions from deforestation/forest degradation, sustainable management of forests, forest carbon stock conservation/enhancement). These FRELs are generated based on historical CO2 emissions in the land...

Soil moisture (SM) plays a key role in many environmental processes and has a high spatial and temporal variability. Collecting sample SM data through field surveys (e.g. for validation of remote sensing-derived products) can be very expensive and time consuming if a study area is large, and producing accurate SM maps from the sample point data is...

We use crowdsourced GIS data from OpenStreetMap to help automate the mapping of land cover in Landsat satellite imagery. The OpenStreetMap data had limited area coverage, but was useful for building a model which could classify land cover in the other areas.
