Large-scale vegetation responses to terrestrial moisture storage changes
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union., 2017-09-08)
The normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) is a useful tool for studying vegetation activity and ecosystem performance at a large spatial scale. In this study we use the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) ...
Response of leaf stable carbon isotope composition to temporal and spatial variabilities of aridity index on two opposite hillslopes in a native vegetated catchment
The stable carbon isotope composition (δ13C) has been demonstrated to be a useful indicator of environmental conditions occurring during plant growth. Previous studies suggest that tree leaf δ13C is correlated with mean ...
Incorporating residual temperature and specific humidity in predicting weather-dependent warm-season electricity consumption
(IOP Publishing, 2017-02-20)
Climate warming and increasing variability challenges the electricity supply in warm seasons. A good quantitative representation of the relationship between warm-season electricity consumption and weather condition provides ...
Estimation of GRACE water storage components by temporal decomposition
The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) has been in operation since 2002. Water storage estimates are calculated from gravity anomalies detected by the operating satellites and although not the true resolution, ...
Mathematics in Utilizing Remote Sensing Data for Investigating and Modelling Environmental Problems
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2017-08-27)
Remote sensing data have already proven useful for environmental monitoring in a timely, detailed, and cost-effective manner to assist various planning and management activities. Remotely sensed data collected over a span ...
Photosynthetic capacity of senescent leaves for a subtropical broadleaf deciduous tree species Liquidambar formosana Hance
(Springer Nature, 2017-07-24)
Photosynthetic capacity and leaf life span generally determine how much carbon a plant assimilates during the growing season. Leaves of deciduous tree species start senescence in late season, but whether the senescent ...
