Initial Validation of a Replicated Field-scale Denitrifying Bioreactor Facility in a Boreal Environment

Received: 29 December 2020;  Published: 15 April 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2102005

Abstract

Denitrifying bioreactor technology, where a solid carbon source (wood chips) acts as a reactive medium to intercept agricultural tile drainage water, has been successfully used to convert nitrate (NO3-) to di-nitrogen (N2) gas. Four full-size field-scale (80ft long x 10 ft. wide x 4 ft. deep), repli [...]

Evolution of Radar and Lightning Variables in Convective Events in Barcelona and Surroundings for the Period 2006–2020

Received: 28 October 2020;  Published: 14 April 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2102004

Abstract

The Metropolitan Area of Barcelona is a very densely populated region in the NE of the Iberian Peninsula. Besides, infrastructures in the area have a concrete height in the economy of this part of Europe. The combination of the Mediterranean Sea and the complex topography plays a role in the occurre [...]

Linking Population and Forest Dynamics over the Conterminous US for the 1990s and 2000s

Received: 24 September 2020;  Published: 09 March 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2101003

Abstract

Few studies have investigated deforestation and population connections in the U.S. at large spatial extents or small scales. We examined forest cover changes over two decades, 1990-2000 and 2000-2010, in the continental U.S. at the county scale. Forest dynamics were estimated using the National Land [...]

How to Prioritize Voluntary Dietary Modification

Received: 03 August 2020;  Published: 25 December 2020;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2004005

Abstract

Environmentally motivated voluntary diet modifications are the focus of much research and public discourse. Yet the nuanced multi-faceted, multi-dimensional nature of agriculture-earth interactions, and limited public environmental knowledge likely combine to undermine the efficacy of environmentall [...]

Impact of COVID-19 Lockdowns and Australian Bushfires on Aerosol Loading over the Downwind Oceanic Regions

Received: 21 August 2020;  Published: 23 November 2020;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2004003

Abstract

Nearly 40 years of aerosol optical thickness (AOT) climate data record (CDR) from AVHRR satellite observations over the global ocean is used to study the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns and Australian bushfires on aerosol loading over downwind oceanic regions. Recent similar impact studies, by contrast [...]
