  • Climate change and its influence on the Karst groundwater recharge in the Jinci Spring Region, Northern China 

    Jia, Zhenxing; Zang, Hongfei; Zheng, Xiuqing; Xu, Yongxin (MDPI, 2017)
    Due to climate change and human activities over the last fifty years, the spring flow volume of karst groundwater has sharply diminished in China. Climate change is one of the critical factors that initiates a series of ...
  • Endangered Antarctic microbial communities 

    Cowan, Donald A.; Ah Tow, Lemese (Annual Reviews, 2004)
    The Antarctic continent harbors a range of specialized and sometimes highly localized microbial biotopes. These include biotopes associated with desiccated mineral soils, rich ornithogenic soils, glacial and sea ice, ...

    Amosu, Albert O.; Bashorun, O.W.; Babalola, O.O.; Olowu, R.A.; Togunde, K.A. (Academic Journals, 2012)
    Climates related disaster is greatly human induced warming, leading to substantial fluctuations in earth temperature which is currently a global issue of environmental concern. Human proximity and pressure in and around ...
  • Predominant atmospheric and oceanic patterns during coastal marine heatwaves 

    Schlegel, Robert W.; Oliver, Eric C. J.; Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Sarah; Kruger, Andries (Frontiers Media, 2017)
    As the mean temperatures of the worlds oceans increase, it is predicted that marine heatwaves (MHWs) will occur more frequently and with increased severity. However, it has been shown that variables other than increases ...
  • Reviewing evidence of marine ecosystem change off South Africa 

    Moloney, C. L.; Fennessy, S. T.; Gibbons, Mark J.; Roychoudhury, A.; Shillington, F. A.; von der Heyden, B. P.; Watermeyer, K. (National Inquiry Services Centre, 2013)
    Recent changes have been observed in South African marine ecosystems. The main pressures on these ecosystems are fishing, climate change, pollution, ocean acidification and mining. The best long-term datasets are for trends ...
