A research team led by Prof. SUN Jianhua from the and Institute of Atmospheric Physics reviewed research results on warm-sector heavy rainfall, including the categories and general features, the triggering mechanism, and structural features of the mesoscale convective system.
Forest fires have important influences on chemical properties of soils in permafrost regions, and changes in soil characteristics affected by forest fires are related with fire severity and post-fire recovery time. Recently, a research group from Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) investigated the effects of forest fires on soil nutrients of larch forest soils in the discontinuous permafr...
Animals evolved from single-celled ancestors before diversifying into 30-40 distinct anatomical designs. When and how animal ancestors made the transition from single-celled microbes to complex multicellular organisms is unclear. But a new scientific study suggests animal-like embryological traits developed long before animals themselves.
Researchers from Tongji University, Institute of Oceanology and Shanghai Central Meteorological Observatory found that the optimal precursors of sea surface temperature (SST-OPRS) using an adjoint-free method for ENSO showed certain seasonal dependence in the IOCAS ICM model.
Recently, a research group from Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) analyzed precipitation samples during 2012-2013 from a data gap region in the high elevation semi-arid mountain valley in the central Himalayas to understand the concentrations, fluxes, seasonal variation and origin of the mercury (Hg), major ions and trace element.
Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics found that pollution over the Arctic Ocean was from marine emission of sea salt particles influenced by oceanic cyclone system, while in northwest Pacific region, long-range transport pollutants from the continent were among the primary causes.
