Mapping the Missing Carbon

Автор:

Scientific consensus is that the recently observed increase in levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide is caused primarily by burning of fossil fuels, industrial processes and deforestation. However, the rate of this increase has been much slower than would be expected from a simple tally of known carbon sources and sinks, suggesting that carbon is “missing” from the existing carbon budget. New research indicates that tropical forests are absorbing significantly more carbon than previously thought, a finding that could help account for the missing carbon. A critical question remains: how much carbon sequestration is carried out by mature versus by regenerating forests? This work begins to answer this question by improving our understanding of the role that regenerating forests play in the carbon budget of tropical forests. The author presents an operational methodology for mapping carbon pools of tropical regenerating forests at regional scales. Integrating site-level forest inventory measurements with satellite imagery in the Amazon and the Congo Basin, the author presents wall-to-wall maps of carbon pools at different stages of forest regeneration in both regions.

Импульсные магнитные поля для прогрессивных технологий

Автор:

Приведены сведения о магнитно-импульсном притяжении листовых металлов, исторических аспектах его появления, физической сути, оборудовании и особенностях инструментов. Основное внимание сосредоточено на притяжении, как способе внешней рихтовки кузовных элементов автомобиля. Сформулированы и обоснованы основные положения и преимущества внешней рихтовки с использованием энергии электромагнитных полей, что позволяет поставить её в ряд прогрессивных технологий, которые отвечают требованиям современности: ЭКОЛОГИЯ, РЕСУРСО- И ЭНЕРГОСБЕРЕЖЕНИЕ! Особенное внимание уделено индукторным системам – инструментам для магнитно-импульсного притяжения элементов автомобильных кузовов с целью внешнего устранения вмятин без нарушения существующего защитного покрытия. Монография предназначена для специалистов в области электромагнитных технологий, студентов и аспирантов электромеханических специальностей ВУЗов, также может быть полезна для инженерно-технических работников и научных работников.

India’s Environmental Nightmare

Автор:

India is a land of diversity with a jigsaw puzzle of people belonging to various faiths and they all live together to create a culturally unique society. India’s economy is growing at 9%, the fastest after China and it ranks 12th among the largest global economies—third largest in Asia after China and Japan. While the enduring economic recession is dragging many nations, India’s economy is projected to grow. Due to aggressive developmental activities, India faces enormous environmental problems that range from polluting industries to nuclear power plants, and from toxic waste dumping in rivers to shrinking groundwater. But the question is can India tackle the enduring environmental nightmare? The answer is ‘yes’. India is a big country indeed but the problems can be solved by setting up timely priorities. In this monograph of essays, the author, who is an environmental scientist, has outlined all about India’s environmental problems including workable scientific eco-solutions to solve the crisis before it is late.
