Natural disasters and climate change: how science expects the unexpected
With the 18th Conference of the Parties (COP18) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) coming up in Doha, Qatar, in November, this issue of Research*EU results magazine focuses on ‘Natural disasters and climate change: how science expects the unexpected’.
The ‘environment and society’ section then continues with many more examples of research for better understanding, forecasting and preparedness of natural disasters and climate change, starting with ‘Early warning of potential “desertification”’.
The ‘biology and medicine’ section starts with an article entitled ‘Improved treatment of neurodegenerative disorders’, while the feature article of the ‘energy and transport’ section is ‘Drinking water from the sea using solar energy’.
The ‘IT and telecommunications’ section also enters ‘expecting the unexpected’ territory with its opening article, ‘Search technology that can gauge opinion and predict the future’, while the ‘industrial technologies’ section starts with ‘Removing hazardous substances from the air’.
