Multiscale Adaptive Sparse Representation to Reconstruct Missing Remote Sensing Information Proposed[May 18, 2018]

Reconstructing missing Remote Sensing (RS) information caused by poor atmospheric conditions and defective sensors may improve the availability of RS data. A research team led by Prof. YANG Xiaomei at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research found that sparse dictionary learning was beneficial for clouds removal from high-spatial resolution RS images.

Scientists Reveal Effect of Biological Soil Crusts on Soil Moisture Dynamics[May 17, 2018]

Scientists from Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources investigated the effect of biological soil crusts (BSCs) on soil moisture dynamics under different rainfall conditions in the Tengger Desert. The result showed that BSCs significantly increased surface infiltration and soil moisture, but had a negative effect on deep soil moisture recharge.

Waste Carton Works to Fight Against Environmental Pollution, Opening Eyes to Its Cyclic Utilization[May 16, 2018]

Researchers were surprised to find that waste carton could play some role in fighting against environmental pollution by removing hexavalent Chromium, one kind of heavy metal. In a recent study, Chinese scientists were surprised to realize the dream by cyclic utilization of waste carton.

Pay-backs to Africa from Temperature Targets of Paris Agreement[May 16, 2018]

Scientsits from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics investigated potential benefits to Africa of limiting global warming to 1.5°C instead of 2°C. The study suggests that continued efforts to limit warming to 0.5 °C lower than 2°C offer substantial paybacks in terms of reducing heat extremes and their associated socio-economic impacts across Africa.

Chinese Scientists Produce High-performance Carbon Nanotube Transparent Conductive Films[May 15, 2018]

In a recent study, the researchers from Institute of Metal Research of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the collaborators synthesized a single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) thin films composed of isolated SWCNTs with carbon-welded joints for transparent conductive films (TCFs) by an injection floating catalyst chemical vapor deposition method.
