Solar activity causes of off-season super typhoons.

In the western North Pacific, typhoons typically occur from May to October, when atmospheric and oceanic conditions such as wind shear and sea surface temperatures (SSTs) are favorable for typhoon formation. However, Sup...

Nature-based solutions for securing contributions of water, food, and energy in an urban environment

Abstract There is growing awareness that nature-based solutions (NBS) prevent negative effects and secure ecosystem services. However, the potential of NBS to provide intended benefits has not been rigorously assessed. ...
