Land use/land cover (LULC) maps are now being used across disciplines for many different types of applications, e.g., to analyze urban heat islands or rainfall-runoff dynamics. Traditional map accuracy metrics are limited in this regard, as they only assess LULC map thematic accuracy. In reality, some types of misclassification lead to larger...

Working Paper
中国にとっての2019年と2020年の前半は、世界経済の鈍化、米中貿易摩擦の長期化、コロナ問題の勃発など、山積の課題に対処しなければならない時期であった。米中貿易摩擦の影響もあり、中国の2019年のGDPは前年比6.1%の成長に止まった。 2020年1月-3月におけるGDP成長率は、昨年同時期に比べ6.8%下落するなかで開催した中国第十三期全国人民代表大会第3次会議では、内需拡大、雇用安定にフォーカスした政策パッケージを成立させた。  コロナ対策に関連する予算措置規模は、9.2兆元(約147.2兆円)と推計され、「新エネ自動車の普及とEV充電スタンドの拡充」や次世代通信設備や5G技術などへの重点的な投資方針も決まった。  2020年以降における中国経済のGDP成長率が不透明であるため...

A few studies have evaluated the impact of land use land cover (LULC) change on surface water quality in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD), one of the most productive agricultural deltas in the world. This study aims to evaluate water quality parameters inside full- and semi-dike systems and outside of the dike system during the wet and dry season...
