ABSTRACT

Climate change is modifying scientific attitudes toward pre- and post-event assessments of natural hazards. Unprecedented levels of destruction need renewed focus on addressing and protecting communities forcing the decision makers to change their attention to vulnerability and risk assessment. In particular, society and economy rely heavily on infrastructures, as fundamental links for movement of goods and people, and are extremely vulnerable to multiple hazards (such as droughts, floods, storms, and coastal hazards).

Climate Smart Advisory Services in Agriculture to Mitigate Risks of Climate Change

ABSTRACT

Agricultural practices could survive delivering outward blows to the climate, but now that years of poor management has caught up, farming is struggling to bear the brunt of climate change and wrath it brings in the form of unprecedented pest attacks, scorching temperatures, inundating rains – all irregular and each as devastating as the last. Having these issues highlighted to an extent where it is impossible to ignore, coupled with the realization that climate change and its effects are very real, there has been increased and urgent efforts to innovate solutions that help mitigate these risks. The brainchild of these efforts emerged as Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA), with the aim of tackling current and future challenges based on 3 pillars, namely – increasing productivity and sustainability, enhancing resilience and adaptation, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Oman

ABSTRACT

The remote sensing applications that show the successful implementation of artificial intelligence techniques are intelligent onboard processing, advanced database examination, and the automated analysis of multispectral imagery. AI methods can represent knowledge and develop control structures for organizing such expertise in complex studies of airborne remotely sensed images.

The Report of Climate Sciences in the Adaptation to Climate Change: The Case of UHI

RESALLIENCE by Sixense, Paris

France

ABSTRACT

Climate change is a major contemporary phenomenon with multiple consequences. One of its effects is the increase in the frequency and intensity of heat waves. These are exacerbated in cities by the urban heat island effect and thus constitute an increased threat to the health of populations and their thermal comfort, particularly in dense urban areas. Appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures can be implemented with the contribution of climate sciences to fight against these more intense UHI.

RESALLIENCE by Sixense, Paris

France

ABSTRACT

In this perspective, we propose a comparative study, both on multiple terrains in France and internationally, in Japan, but also through different but complementary assessment methods. First, we propose to model the urban heat island and thermal comfort by using satellite data illustrating the morphology and land use of the studied territory (climatic index, vegetation, presence of water, morphology, impervious surfaces). In a second step, we will present two numerical modeling projects of perspective simulation of urban heat islands by quantifying the evapotranspiration of vegetation in hot and uncomfortable weather conditions. The objective of this type of study is to evaluate the cooling potential of an urban development project.

Purifico Water System: Water Distiller Using Sand Power

Lebanon

ABSTRACT

The focus of this paper is to outline a novel sand-based system capable of tackling global freshwater shortages considered one of the main global issues of our time. The design entitled Purifico System aims at boosting desalination plants’ freshwater production and decreasing operational costs using a scalable system that is adaptable to various needs and environments.

ABSTRACT

The synoptic perspective of satellite borne remote sensors can prove to be of great value in the fields of waste management and remediation which require cost effective and timely information from space monitoring techniques. At present, there exists a gap in literature regarding monitoring and assessment of municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill sites using image processing techniques on satellite data. 

Groundwater Potential Zones Using Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques in Villipuram District, Tamil Nadu, India

ABSTRACT

The groundwater is the most precious resources around the world and is shrinking day by day. As the demand and needs of population towards water is growing the value of water is felt in all sectors. At the same time, surface water resources are becoming insufficient to fulfill the water demand. So that systematic planning of groundwater improvement using modern technique is fundamental for the proper management and utilization of this precious resource. Assessing the groundwater potential zone is particularly important for the safety of water quality and the management of groundwater system.

Sustainable Fossil Energy production for Mitigating of land Subsidence and Climate Change: Case study of the Niger Delta, Nigeria

ABSTRACT

Production of Fossil fuels for driving industrialization is fraught with several environmental challenges such s ground subsidence, waste water effluent discharges, greenhouse gas emissions and gas flaring. Carbon, a major bye product in fossil fuel consumption is one of the major culprits in ozone layer depletion and temperature inversion in the stratosphere thereby heat up the earth and exacerbating climate change.
