[1] Land‐use and cover changes (1988–2002) around budongo forest reserve, NW Uganda: implications for forest and woodland sustainability Land‐use and cover changes around Budongo Forest Reserve (BFR) were analysed from multi‐temporal LandSat images (1988 and 2002) and associated field‐based studies in 2003–2004. Three major land‐use and cover classes: forest/woodland, sugarcane plantations and grassland/shifting‐cultivation/settlements were clearly discriminated. The area under sugarcane cultivation increased over 17‐fold, from 690 ha in 1988 to 12729 ha in 2002, with a concomitant loss of about 4680 ha (8·2 … Continue reading “Latest News on Forest Reserve : April 21”

Global Warming and Coastal Erosion One of the most certain consequences of global warming is an increase of global (eustatic) sea level. The resulting inundation from rising seas will heavily impact low-lying areas; at least 100 million persons live within one meter of mean sea level and are at increased risk in the coming decades. [1] Coastal Erosion and Transgressive Stratigraphy Unconformities of transgressive sequences commonly occur within the basal beds of the sequences, not below them. Such unconformities, called … Continue reading “Latest News on Coastal Erosion : March -2020”

Magnetic susceptibility of lake sediments Initial magnetic status in Flandrian sediments from Lough Neagh, N. Ireland, is shown to be a perform of the detrital titanomagnetite of the sediment. Parallel status changes square measure synchronous from core to core and so doubtless valuable for core correlation particularly in sight of the fast nondestructive techniques developed for mensuration. dynamical status within the lake sediments studied seems to be completely related to with variations within the quantity of inwashed inorganic allochthonous material … Continue reading “Latest Research on Lake Sediments: Oct – 2019”

A global boom in hydropower dam construction Human population growth, economic development, climate change, and the need to close the electricity access gap have stimulated the search for new sources of renewable energy. In response to this need, major new initiatives in hydropower development are now under way. At least 3,700 major dams, each with a capacity of more than 1 MW, are either planned or under construction, primarily in countries with emerging economies. These dams are predicted to increase … Continue reading “News Update on Dam Construction Research: Oct – 2019”

Measuring the total economic value of restoring ecosystem services in an impaired river basin: results from a contingent valuation survey Five system services that would be restored  on a 45-mile section of the Platte River were delineated  to respondents employing a building block approach developed by associate degree knowledge domain team. These system services were dilution of waste matter, natural purification of water, erosion management, surroundings for fish and life, and recreation. Households were asked a divided alternative temperament to … Continue reading “Latest Research on River Basin: Oct – 2019”
