In this article the author discusses the impact of the low-carbon energy systems in Indianapolis, Indiana. He mentions that the transition to a low-carbon economy brought great challenges for Hoosier Inc. businesses. He adds that preparation is the most important thing to overcome and supporting...
- Climate response to the physiological impact of carbon dioxide on plants in the Met Office Unified Model HadCM3. Boucher, Olivier; Jones, Andy; Betts, Richard A. // Climate Dynamics;Feb2009, Vol. 32 Issue 2/3, p237
The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere acts to control the stomatal conductance of plants. There is observational and modelling evidence that an increase in the atmospheric concentration of CO2 would suppress the evapotranspiration (ET) rate over land. This process is known as CO2...
