Uncovering Solutions for Global Climate Change and Adaptive Capacity

This research topic focuses on the effects of climate change and extreme climate on various aspects of the environment, including air temperature, relative humidity, wind environment, solar radiation, vegetation indexes, temperature, atmospheric circulation, stable isotopes, temperature lapse-rate, precipitation variability, crime rates, lake changes, ecosystem services, adaptation behavior, land-use functions, eco-environmental quality, and livelihood resilience.

  • Four different evergreen tree species were found to have varying degrees of effect on air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and reducing solar radiation intensity in the areas underneath their canopies.
  • Vegetation indexes in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) are increasing, with the rate of 0.0045/a, and there are significant spatiotemporal differences in the annual effects.
  • Bangladesh is expected to experience a significant increase in mean annual temperature, with the highest increase in temperature in winter.
  • The Xinjiang region in Central Asia has experienced significant warming and wetting trends from 1960 to 2019, and climate change in XJ is closely related to atmospheric circulation at multiple timescales.
  • Stable isotopes in precipitation and related paleoclimate proxies may not reflect the signal of temperature or precipitation alone, but rather reflect changes in moisture sources and upstream convective intensity.
  • The temperature lapse rate method was found to be reliable for correcting ERA-interim reanalysis-temperature data.
  • Extreme climate has a significant positive effect on crime rates in China, mainly due to reduced agricultural output and lower employment income.
  • Human activities and climate change were the dominant factors leading to changes in plains and mountain lakes in Xinjiang.
  • The scale difference of farmers' time and space perception of climate change had a significant positive impact on their adaptive behavior.
  • Ecological water conveyance has been shown to have a positive effect on the restoration of degraded ecosystems in the Tarim River Basin.
  • Livelihood resilience of herdsmen in semi-agricultural and semi-pastoral counties in Inner Mongolia is significantly higher than that of farmers.</
