Global erosivity map shows differences between climatic regions

Πέμ, 06/07/2017 - 10:37

The first ever global erosivity map gives new insights into the geography of the rain's impact on soil erosion. The underlying JRC research, published in the Nature Group's Scientific Reports, highlights differences between climatic regions and calls for global action to protect our soils.

Soil is our most important source of food. And yet, much of the world's soils are being eroded faster than they are formed.

Extreme weather conditions and climate change account for 40% of global wheat production variability

Πέμ, 06/07/2017 - 10:36

JRC scientists have proposed a new approach for identifying the impacts of climate change and extreme weather on the variability of global and regional wheat production. The study analysed the effect of heat and water anomalies on crop losses over a 30-year period.

JRC scientists studied the relative importance of heat stress and drought on wheat yields between 1980 and 2010. They developed a new Combined Stress Index in order to better understand the effects of concurrent heat and water stress events.

JRC mentoring scheme for refugee scientists

Τετ, 21/06/2017 - 09:17

In 2017, the JRC launched a pilot programme to welcome refugee scientists for one-week training programmes at the JRC. The objective of the programme is to introduce them to the European research context, which would allow them to pursue scientific activities in their field of expertise and to help them build up work experience, qualifications and contacts for future employment in Europe.

This scheme is in line with the efforts of the EU, academia and NGOs to help refugee scientists and researchers use their skills and experience to connect to other European researchers.

4 Vacancies at the Women in Science Excel (WISE) programme

Δευ, 19/06/2017 - 13:29

Big fish in big trouble in Europe

Παρ, 02/06/2017 - 09:17

A new study by an international team of scientists, published in Nature Ecology & Evolution, warns that many large fish species, including many of the sharks and rays of Europe, are threatened with extinction. Confirming the findings of previous studies, the scientists highlight regional differences in fish stock status in Europe and point to overfishing in the Mediterranean.

Atlas of the Human Planet 2017 – how exposed are we to natural hazards?

Πέμ, 25/05/2017 - 09:38

One out of three people in the world is exposed to earthquakes, a number which almost doubled in the past 40 years. Around 1 billion in 155 countries are exposed to floods and 414 million live near one of the 220 most dangerous volcanoes. The 2017 edition of the JRC Atlas of the Human Planet looks at the exposure of people and built-up areas to the six major natural hazards, and its evolution over the last 40 years. The atlas will be presented during the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction meeting in Cancun, Mexico.

Calculating the potential impacts of Ecological Focus Areas on biodiversity and ecosystem services

Δευ, 03/04/2017 - 11:59

A new JRC Technical Report explores the potential impact of the implementation of Ecological Focus Areas (EFAs) on the environment.

An Ecological Focus Area (EFA) is an area of land subjected to agricultural practices that are beneficial for the climate and the environment. According to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), farmers with more than 15 ha of arable land must ensure that at least 5% of this land is an EFA. This obligation was introduced as part of the CAP reform in 2013 to safeguard and improve biodiversity on farms.
