In the realm of disaster preparedness, a group of innovative Turkish design graduates has birthed a groundbreaking solution: ForestGuard. Highlighted by Dezeen as part of the 'Designing for Disaster' series, this cutting-edge sensor system is poised to revolutionize wildfire detection.
A study by European experts lists 15 overlooked and emerging issues that have the potential to drastically impact the UK's forests in the next half-century, with 'catastrophic forest ecosystem collapse' leading the concerns.
Deforestation in the Amazon causes land surfaces up to 100 kilometres away to get warmer, according to a new study by a team of British and Brazilian scientists. The research led by Dr. Edward Butt at the University of Leeds underscores the vital role played by tropical forests in cooling the Earth's surface and highlights the far-reaching consequences of deforestation.
The NASA-ISRO Radar Satellite Mission, known as NISAR, is scheduled for launch in early 2024 and is a collaborative effort between NASA and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). NISAR is equipped with advanced radar systems that will scan nearly all of Earth's land and ice surfaces twice every 12 days, providing valuable data on ecosystems, particularly forests and wetlands, crucial in regulating greenhouse gases and understanding their impact on global climate change.
A groundbreaking ecological experiment led by the University of Oxford on Borneo Island demonstrates the remarkable potential of replanting logged tropical forests with diverse seedlings in expediting their recovery. Published in the journal Science Advances, the study underscores the significance of biodiversity preservation in pristine forests and its restoration in recovering logged forests.
As protests against Manipur violence continue, the passage of the Forest (Conservation) Amendment Bill raises concerns about its potential impact on forest protection, carbon sinks, and land use changes.
Earth lost a significant area of carbon-absorbing rainforests, with an area larger than Switzerland or the Netherlands destroyed, primarily for cattle ranching and commodity crops. This information comes from an analysis of satellite data released by the World Resources Institute.
From the ground, it could be hard to assess the scale of losses and effects disappearing trees have on atmospheric carbon dioxide...
