The geothermal energy is a possible source of provisions, using the inner heat of the Earth and reprenents an effective option Geothermal energy is a possible source of energy supply that exploits the Earth's internal heat and is, in...
Not only solar radiation and temperature. In the Arctic tundra, soil moisture and the abundance and type of vegetation control the exchange of CO2 between soil, vegetation and atmosphere. This is the conclusion of a study carried out by...
In urban areas, settlement expansion and landscape transformations are intimately associated, involving multiple domains: ecology, spatial planning, economic issues and social aspects. Contemporary urbanisation, especially in advanced economies, has progressively deviated from typical ideal city models in which population...
Forest vulnerability to drought is expected to increase under anthropogenic climate change, and drought-induced mortality and community dynamics following drought have major ecological and societal impacts. In recent decades, numerous cases of forest dieback and mortality have been reported in...
Repaire the Earth with the help of 'beneficial' microbes, able to improve yield and quality of crops, but also to counteract the impoverishment of soils, reclaim contaminated land and reduce the use of water, fertilizers and pesticides. On the...
The transition to an economy based on renewable energy sources requires the use of electrochemical methods to convert electrical energy into chemical energy and raw materials. A group of researchers from the Berlin Polytechnic, the Zurich Polytechnic, the Materials...
It is called ENEA-RegESM (Regional Earth System Model) and is able to simulate the atmosphere-ocean dynamics in relation to the physical and biological processes occurring on the Earth's surface, such as heat fluxes, CO2 absorption by the Earth's ecosystems...
Floods, heavy rainfall and inundation are increasingly threatening the integrity and survival of Europe's cultural heritage. Thanks to the collaboration between the Institute of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences of the National Research Council (CNR-Isac) in Bologna, the Institute of...
For the first time, thanks to the analysis of an ice core taken from the east coast of Greenland, in Renland, the history of forest fires in Iceland over the last 5,000 years has been reconstructed. The discovery was...
Big times for tree lovers. From reforestation apps aiming to become the ‘Tinder for trees’, to Trump’s commitment to join the One Trillion Trees Initiative, this year has seen a real boost in governments and start-ups’ efforts to repopulate...
