Research reveals that a “finite pool of worry” constrains concern about and action on climate change. Nevertheless, a longitudinal panel survey of 1,858 UK residents, surveyed in April 2019 and June 2020, reveals little evidence for diminishing climate change concern during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, the sample identifies climate change as a bigger threat than COVID-19. The findings suggest climate change has become an intransigent concern within UK public consciousness.
Landscapes changes are a result of a wide range of interactions between actors and driving forces (DFs). In this study, we quantify the contribution of different types of DFs to processes of land change in the Northern Coast of São Paulo State (NCSP), Brazil, an important region for tourism and the energy sector. We analysed the relationship between DFs and the processes of land change from 1985 to 2000 and from 2000 to 2015 with partial least squares path modelling. The political and technol...
1. Plant pathogens are introduced to new geographical regions ever more frequently as global connectivity increases. Predicting the threat they pose to plant health can be difficult without in‐depth knowledge of behaviour, distribution and spread. Here, we evaluate the potential for using biological traits and phylogeny to predict global threats from emerging pathogens. 2. We use a species‐level trait database and phylogeny for 179 Phytophthora species: oomycete pathogens impacting natural, a...
We present a geomorphic map of Chukhung crater (38.47°N, 72.42°W) in central Tempe Terra, Mars. Chukhung crater formed ~3.6–2.1 Ga, between the early Hesperian and early Amazonian periods of Mars' geologic history. It hosts dendritic networks of crater wall valleys, broad crater floor valleys, mid- to late-Amazonian-aged debris-covered glaciers, moraine-like deposits, and a radial assemblage of sinuous ridge landforms. We explore the origins of landforms in Chukhung crater, focusing in partic...
This study deals with coastline extraction using multipolarization spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery acquired over coastal intertidal areas. The latter are very challenging environments where mud flats lead to a large variability of normalized radar cross section, which may trigger a significant number of false edges during the extraction process. The performance of SAR-based coastline extraction methods that rely on a joint combination of multipolarization information (either...
