Pan, YiWen; et al. (2019): A sea trial of air-lift concept artificial upwelling in the East China Sea

Pan, YiWen; Li, Yifan; Fan, Wei; Zhang, DaHai; Qiang, Yongfa; Jiang, ZongPei; Chen, Ying (2019): A sea trial of air-lift concept artificial upwelling in the East China Sea. In: Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology. DOI: 10.1175/JTECH-D-18-0238.1.

"In this work, a sea-trial of an air-lift concept AU system driven by self-powered energy was carried out in the East China Sea (ECS) (30°8′14″N, 122°44′59″E) to assess the logistics of at-sea deployment and the durability of the equipment under extremely complex hydrodynamic condition from Sep 3rd to 7th, 2014."

C2G: Climate Colonialism and Large-Scale Land Acquisitions

"In an era of climate change, large-scale land acquisitions threaten to revive classic tactics of colonialism in new institutional forms. Countries and corporations – often working in concert – have been buying land around the world. The political implications of this slow transfer of the material means of critical resource security from the Global South to the Global North are vast and dire. They also complicate the politics of our responses to the climate crisis, which include the prospects for genuinely participatory carbon removal."
