This article presents two case analyses of low-carbon technology transfer between Japan and China. One technology is waste heat recovery power generation in cement kiln (WHR system) and the other is co-processing of wastes using cement kiln, namely the CKK system (Conch Kawasaki Kiln System). The WHR system has significant co-benefit in the...

We developed a method for mapping residential areas using freely available satellite imagery. The resultant residential area map can be used for risk assessment (e.g. to estimate the population living in a flood-prone area). Our method can be applied for flood risk assessment in other watersheds in the future.

This paper demonstrates the importance of considering scale issues when estimating the accuracy of land use/land cover maps, particularly when satellite images having different spatial resolutions (i.e. pixel sizes) are used in combination to generate the land use/land cover maps. The results are important for creators and users of these types of...
