Research follow-up: assessing groundwater beneath Africa — Last modified December 10, 2015 08:10
Alan MacDonald and colleagues published their map of African groundwater resources in Environmental Research Letters three years ago; since then there’s been much progress, including the commencement of the UPGro (Unlocking the Potential of Groundwater for the Poor) programme
The farmer’s dilemma: cut down virgin forest or convert existing pasture — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:15
Consider two oil palm plantations in Peru: row upon row of leafy fronds swaying gently in the breeze. To all intents and purposes the trees at both plantations look the same, the yields achieved are similar and the resulting products are high quality. But dig deeper and some major differences emerge. One of these plantations was, until recently, a tropical forest, and has resulted in much more global warming than the other, which was converted from abandoned pasture land.
Warming slow-down is climate pause — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:10
A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, university researchers have found.
Oceans slowed global temperature rise, scientists report — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:03
A new study of ocean temperature measurements shows that in recent years, extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the subsurface waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans, thus accounting for the slowdown in the global surface temperature increase observed during the past decade, researchers say.

Should abandoned croplands stay that way? — Last modified November 26, 2015 09:02
After the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, approximately 19 million hectares (Mha) of cropland, or 54%, were abandoned in Kazakhstan by the year 2000. Many people believe this land should be re-cultivated to increase the country's agricultural production and contribute to regional and global food security. But researchers from Germany, Denmark, the US and Kazakhstan instead want to see it used for conservation, preservation of ecosystem services and traditional extensive livestock grazing.
