Water News in Asian-Pacific Region
Amount of rainfall linked to soil pH worldwide
[Environmental Research Web] For many years, scientists have known there's a link between the amount of rainfall in a region and soil pH. Now, for the first time, a team from the US and China has investigated the soil pH®Cwater-balance relationship on a global scale.
Local benefits highlight role of natural infrastructure in adaptive basin planning
[IUCN] Building water infrastructure such as dams contributes to economic development, food, and energy security depending on their objective. In developing countries it is often seen as the most cost effective way to increase electricity production and irrigated agriculture. However, reaching these national objectives can often come at a cost to nature and local livelihoods which depend on healthy ecosystems.
Known unknowns: indirect energy effects of information and communication technology
[IOPScience] There has been sustained and growing interest in characterizing the net energy impact of information and communication technology (ICT), which results from indirect effects offsetting (or amplifying) the energy directly consumed by ICT equipment. These indirect effects may be either positive or negative, and there is considerable disagreement as to the direction of this sign as well as the effect magnitude.
Carbon dioxide could ease drought impacts
[Climate News Network] Climate science may have over-estimated the menace of drought in the world of global warming. Because green plants will respond to extra carbon dioxide, the water taken up by the roots could be halved.
Spatially explicit global population scenarios consistent with the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways
[Environmental Research Letters] The projected size and spatial distribution of the future population are important drivers of global change and key determinants of exposure and vulnerability to hazards. Spatial demographic projections are widely used as inputs to spatial projections of land use, energy use, and emissions, as well as to assessments of the impacts of extreme events, sea level rise, and other climate-related outcomes.
