Scientists Reconstruct Spring Hydroclimate on South-central Tibetan Plateau by Living and Dead Alpine Juniper Shrubs

By | Climate change, Forestry, News, Plant Science

Alpine regions on the Tibetan Plateau are sensitive to climate change, however, little is known about their long-term hydroclimate variability due to short instrumental records. A research team established a 537-year standard shrub-ring chronology by cross-dating living and dead Wilson juniper shrubs sampled nearby the Nam Co Lake, on the south-central Tibetan Plateau.

Making sense of climate scenarios: toolkit for decision-makers launched

By | Agriculture, Climate change, News

To make climate scenarios work for decision-makers, an international team of researchers developed a comprehensive interactive online platform. It is the first of its kind to provide the tools to use those scenarios – from climate impacts to mitigation and energy options – to a broader public beyond science. The scenarios help policy makers and businesses, finance actors and civil society alike to assess the threat of global warming and ways to limit it.
