Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics found that lightning data could serve as an indicator for hazardous weather phenomena and improve short-term forecasting.
Recently, scientists from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources, together with researchers from famous universities and research institutes at home and abroad, estimated the contribution of black carbon and dust to glacial melting in Central Asia.
Researchers found that air pollution during the COVID-19 lockdown was mainly due to the different chemical responses of primary and secondary aerosols to the changes in anthropogenic emissions.
Dr. LIU Bo and Dr. LIANG Yu from the Landscape Process Group of the Institute of Applied Ecology tested how the multiple factors of soil nitrogen quantity and heterogeneity, stand age, topographic position (Flat location, North-facing slope and South-facing slope), and overstory basal area affected understory characteristics (cover, richness, evenness, and composition) during boreal forest succession following wildfire disturbance.
Recently, the research group led by Prof. GUO Qinghua from the Institute of Botany proposed a novel marker-free method and achieved high-accuracy automatic registration of multi-scan terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) data in forest environments. Its main principle is to identify shaded areas from the raw point cloud of a single TLS scan and use them as the key features to register multi-scan TLS data.
Microorganisms play an important role in the formation and turnover of soil organic matter, and microbial residues (necromass) represent an important pool of soil organic nitrogen.Researchers from the Biogeochemistry Group of the Institute of Applied Ecology (IAE) isolated a number of strains of bacteria and fungi from soils in a temperate forest in Changbai Mountain National Nature Reserve using the classical microbial culturing method.
