The Shared Socioeconomic Pathways and their energy, land use, and greenhouse gas emissions implications: An overview - Open access. Changes in land conditions from human use or climate change in turn affect regional and global climate (high confidence). On the global scale, this is driven by changes in emissions or removals of CO 2, CH 4 and N 2 O by land (biogeochemical effects) and by changes in the surface albedo .

Land-use planning is the process of regulating the use of land in an effort to promote more desirable social and environmental outcomes as well as a more efficient use of resources. Goals of land use planning may include environmental conservation, restraint of urban sprawl, minimization of transport costs, prevention of land use conflicts, and a reduction in exposure to pollutants. The UNEP Year Book is a series that highlight emerging environmental issues and significant events and development during the year. It also tracks environmental trends by presenting key indicators. The Year Book series was established in and currently the 10th edition of the UNEP Year Book is being prepared. The Year Book series responds to the need to enhance the use of scientific.

  Facts and Fiction on Livestock and Climate Change As the November Global Climate Change Conference COP21 concluded in Paris, countries reached agreement on the reduction of fossil fuel use and emissions in the production and consumption of energy, even to the extent of potentially phasing out fossil fuels out entirely. Both globally and in the U.S., energy production and use.   Solar power. Like wind power, the sun provides a tremendous resource for generating clean and sustainable electricity. The environmental impacts associated with solar power can include land use and habitat loss, water use, and the use of hazardous materials in manufacturing, though the types of impacts vary greatly depending on the scale of the system and the technology .

Global Environmental Change is a peer-reviewed international journal publishing high quality, theoretically and empirically rigorous articles, which advance knowledge about the human and policy dimensions of global environmental change. The journal interprets global environmental change to mean the outcome of processes that are manifest in.

Global Environmental Change and Land Use [Haarman, Han, Verhagen, A., Rovers, C.A.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Global Environmental Change and Land Use. Land-use and land-cover change has only recently become a topic susceptible to scientific research, as these concepts and tools have been devel­ oped and made available.

Rooted in a broad community concemed with global change, systematic research has begun into land-use systems at different scales and interactions, and their links with global. B.L. Turner II, in International Encyclopedia of Human Geography, Modeling.

Global environmental change and sustainability science are found on experiments, tests, and the need to address the future through quantitative-based forecasts. Modeling is essential in either case.

Land-change modeling has been served by advances in the geographical information sciences (GIScs) and. Land-use and land-cover change is an important contrlbutor of greenhouse­ gasses as these activities directly interfere with the carbon, nitrogen and water cyc1es. These cyc1es are connected through numerous feedback loops.

The interface of land-use and c1imate is essentially determined by the interaction of man and the environment. Global Environmental Change offers a strategy for combining the efforts of natural and social scientists to better understand how our actions influence global change and how global change influences us.

The volume is accessible to the nonscientist and provides a wide range of examples and case studies. Therefore, this book, “Land Use, Climate Change and Biodiversity Modeling: Perspectives and Applications,” is unique and is distinguished from existing titles within the subject area.

In addition, it responds to the remaining controversial issue on the effects of accumulative land-use and climate change on biodiversity. Global warming - Global warming - Land-use change: There are a number of ways in which changes in land use can influence climate.

The most direct influence is through the alteration of Earth’s albedo, or surface reflectance. For example, the replacement of forest by cropland and pasture in the middle latitudes over the past several centuries has led to an increase in albedo, which in turn.

2 days ago  A fascinating study in Global Environmental Change looked at the global effects from to of seven climate-related hazards: floods. Remote Sensing plays a key role in monitoring the various manifestations of global climate change.

It is used routinely in the assessment and mapping of biodiversity over large areas, in the monitoring of changes to the physical environment, in assessing threats to various components of natural systems, and in the identification of priority areas for conservation.

The book presents recent estimates of the rates in changes of major land classes such as forest, cropland and pasture.

Among the causative mechanisms behind land change, synergetic factor combinations are found to be more common than single key factor explanations. The handbook Global Environmental Change is intended to serve as a reliable and comprehensive resource to attend the needs of researchers, teachers, students, and professionals working in science and policy aspects relevant to environment and sustainability.

Entries in the handbook are arranged by major section, and are extensively cross-referenced to allow users to find related titles in a.

The book provides an opportunity for students to apply important skills, knowledge, and analytical tools. The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska.

The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California. The link between land use and the climate is complex.

First, land cover--as shaped by land use practices--affects the global concentration of greenhouse gases. Second, while land use change is an important driver of climate change, a changing climate can lead to changes in land use and land cover. For example, farmers might shift from their customary crops to crops that will.

This book highlights one of the most important aspects of global change - the interaction of land use and the climate system. In separate chapters the book treats modelling of land-use patterns, the effects on climate, the effect of land use on the global carbon cycle, hydrological aspects of land use, aspects of climate change on food availability in West Africa, and the spatial requirements.

environmental change, or social and policy processes that seek to address problems of environmental change. Topics include, but are not restricted to, the drivers, consequences and management of changes in: biodiversity and ecosystem services, climate, coasts, food systems, land use and land cover, oceans, urban areas, and water resources.

demonstrates WWF Germany’s landscape level projects funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI). Most projects on the site are transboundary and involve multiple countries. Land use change from agricultural and urban expansion is transforming ecosystems around the globe – from Indonesian and Malaysian rainforest, to Colombian tropical grasslands and.

Choices about land use and land management affect the amount of greenhouse gases entering and leaving the atmosphere and, therefore, provide opportunities to reduce climate change (Ch. Biogeochemical Cycles; Ch. Mitigation). 54 Such choices can affect the balance of these gases directly, through decisions to preserve or restore carbon.On a global scale, the National Research Council identified land use dynamics as one of the grand challenges for environmental research.

8 No indicators are available to assess the effects that trends in land use have on human health, as effects have not been shown or quantified on a national basis.Land use/land cover change is a key driver of global change (Vitousek, ) and has significant implications for many international policy issues (Nunes and Auge, ).

In particular, land use.
