Bottom-Up analysis of energy consumption and carbon emissions, with particular emphasis on human capital investment
(Scientific Research, 2013-12)
Short-term and mid-term projections of energy consumption and carbon emissions raise significant concern about the availability of the necessary energy resources to meet the growing demand and about the impact of emissions ...
Drought Resistance Across California Ecosystems: Evaluating Changes In Carbon Dynamics Using Satellite Imagery
Corporate initiatives to mitigate climate change in Brazil: an analysis of companies that joined ICO2 and Brazil GHG protocol program
(International Journal of Innovation and Research in Educational Sciences, 2016)
Affecting factors and recent improvements of the photochemical reflectance index (pri) for remotely sensing foliar, canopy and ecosystemic radiation-use efficiencies
(MDPI AG, 2016-08)
Accurately assessing terrestrial gross primary productivity (GPP) is crucial for characterizing the climate-carbon cycle. Remotely sensing the photochemical reflectance index (PRI) across vegetation functional types and ...
Photosynthetic light use efficiency from satellite sensors: from global to Mediterranean vegetation
Recent advances in remote-sensing techniques for light use efficiency (LUE) are providing new possibilities for monitoring carbon uptake by terrestrial vegetation (gross primary production, GPP), in particular for Mediterranean ...
Measured and modeled interactive effects of potassium deficiency and water deficit on gross primary productivity and light-use efficiency in Eucalyptus grandis plantations
Global climate change is expected to increase the length of drought periods in many tropical regions. Although large amounts of potassium (K) are applied in tropical crops and planted forests, little is known about the ...
COAL BLEND COMBUSTION: LINK BETWEEN UNBURNT CARBON IN FLY ASHES AND MACERAL COMPOSITION
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2003)
Coal blends are increasingly utilised at power plants with significant savings and without breaking environment regulations. However, evidence of interaction among the coals requires the study of some parameters that affect ...
Uma análise empírica do índice carbono eficiente (ICO2) no mercado financeiro brasileiro
(Universidade Federal de Santa MariaBrasilEngenharia de ProduçãoUFSMPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Engenharia de ProduçãoCentro de Tecnologia, 2018-03-09)
The need to stimulate productive practices aimed at the transition from an intensive economy in the use of fossil fuels to a low-carbon economy, is an essential factor capable of reducing the negative externalities of the ...
Optical, mechanical and surface properties of amorphous carbonaceous thin films obtained by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition and plasma immersion ion implantation and deposition
Diverse amorphous hydrogenated carbon-based films (a-C:H, a-C:H:F, a-C:H:N, a-C:H:Cl and a-C:H:Si:O) were obtained by radiofrequency plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) and plasma immersion ion implantation ...
