Factor Five: Transforming the Global Economy Through 80% Improvements in Resource Productivity

Whilst first released in 1997, issue 4: Doubling Wealth, Halving source Use through popular financial and engineering specialists Ernst von Weizs? cker, Amory Lovins and L. Hunter Lovins, reworked how economists, coverage makers, engineers, marketers and enterprise leaders considered innovation and wealth production.

Ship and Offshore Structure Design in Climate Change Perspective

This publication summarizes result of longstanding study and medical contributions from many tasks and correct operating teams. It collects and evaluates wind and wave weather projections lower than altering weather having layout wishes and marine protection in concentration. strength influence of projected weather swap in met-ocean stipulations on ships and offshore constructions is mentioned and illustrated by means of an instance of the predicted wave weather swap on tanker layout.

Climate Change Impact on Livestock: Adaptation and Mitigation

This quantity addresses intimately either livestock’s position in weather swap and the affects of weather swap on farm animals construction and replica. except those cardinal ideas of weather swap and farm animals creation, this quantity additionally examines a number of the techniques used to mitigate livestock-related GHG emissions, and people that can lessen the affects of weather swap on cattle creation and copy.

Climate Change Adaptation, Resilience and Hazards

This booklet analyses the hyperlinks among weather swap model, resilience and the affects of dangers. The members hide subject matters corresponding to weather swap version in coastal zones, the assessment of neighborhood land versions, weather swap concerns in public future health and water source administration, in addition to conceptual frameworks for realizing vulnerabilities to severe weather occasions.

At the next step the overall accuracy of each method was calculated using the kappa coefficient which indicates whether mapping results are significantly better than randomly generated results (Martinez and Toan 2009). The values of coefficient vary from 0 to 1. D. Alexakis et al. Fig. 2 False color composite of Aster image (3,2,1: RGB) of the catchment area during 2000 (left). 128 and reference pixels. Regarding ML, at the specific algorithm the statistical probability is computed for each training class to determine the membership of the cells to the class.

Hadjimitsis, S. Michaelides, I. Tsanis, A. Retalis, C. Demetriou, A. Agapiou, K. Themistokleous, S. Pashiardis, K. Aristeidou, and F. Tymvios Abstract Flooding is one of the most common natural disasters leading to economic losses and death. This paper strives to highlight the hydrological effects of land use changes in flood risk in a catchment area in Cyprus (Yialias river) through the application of ArcSWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) in GIS environment. The model is used to simulate the main components of the hydrologic cycle, in order to study the effects of land use changes.
