  4. Market-mediated environmental impacts of biofuels

    03 Dec 2021 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lan Zhao, Carol Song, Larry Biehl

    This paper surveys the evidence on market-mediated environmental impacts of biofuels, with special attention to the indirect greenhouse gas emissions stemming from land cover change in the wake of increased demand for biofuel feedstocks. We find clear evidence that market mediated land use...

  5. Energy prices will play an important role in determining global land use in the twenty first century

    03 Dec 2021 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lan Zhao, Carol Song, Larry Biehl

    Global land use research to date has focused on quantifying uncertainty effects of three major drivers affecting competition for land: the uncertainty in energy and climate policies affecting competition between food and biofuels, the uncertainty of climate impacts on agriculture and forestry,...

  6. AgMIP Tool: A GEOSHARE tool for aggregating outputs from the AgMIP's Global Gridded Crop Modeling Initiative (Ag-GRID)

    03 Dec 2021 | Tools | Contributor(s): Lan Zhao, Carol Song, Larry Biehl

    Aggregate the yield shocks provided by the AgMIP project from their original 30x30 min resolution to any user specified level.

  12. A seasonal-scale climatological analysis correlating spring tornadic activity with antecedent fall–winter drought in the southeastern United States

    03 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Using rain gauge and satellite-based rainfall climatologies and the NOAA Storm PredictionCenter tornado database (1952–2007), this study found a statistically significant tendency forfall–winter drought conditions to be correlated with below-normal tornado days the followingspring in north...

  13. A copula-based joint deficit index for droughts

    03 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Current drought information is based on indices that do not capture the joint behaviors of hydrologic variables. To address this limitation, the potential of copulas in characterizing droughts from multiplevariables is explored in this study. Starting from the standardized index (SI) algorithm, a...

  14. A spatio-temporal drought analysis for the Midwestern US

    03 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Droughts are prolonged abnormalities of moisture deficits that vary widely across temporal and spatial scales. Many hydrometeorologic variables are used to monitor the status of a drought. However, because of the dependence structure between all affecting variables under various temporal windows,...
