Carbon Dioxide Fluxes and Concentrations in Cotton Field of Northwestern China: Effects of Plastic Mulching and Drip Irrigation
In northwestern China, there has been a change from traditional cultivation system (TC) with no mulching and flood irrigation to a more modern cultivation system (MC) using plastic film mulching with drip irrigation. A field study was conducted to compare soil CO2 concentrations and soil surface CO2fluxes between TC and MC systems during a cotton growing season.
East Asian Studies of Tropospheric Aerosols and Their Impact on Regional Climate (EASTAIRC): An overview
As the most populated region of the world, Asia is a major source of aerosols with potential large impact over vast downstream areas. Papers published in this special section describe the variety of aerosols observed in China and their effects and interactions with the regional climate as part of the East Asian Study of Tropospheric Aerosols and their Impact on Regional Climate (EAST-AIRC).
In this study we explore the potentialapplications of MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) -like satellite sensors in air quality research for some Asian regions. The MODIS aerosol optical thickness (AOT), NCEP global reanalysis meteorological data, and daily surface PM10 concentrations over China and Thailand from 2001 to 2009 were analyzed using simple and multiple regression models.

A Systematic Method for Vegetation Height Retrieval from ICESat Data: Application in White Mountain National Forest New Hampshire, USA
Vegetation structure retrieval accuracies from spaceborne Geoscience Laser
Altimeter System (GLAS) on the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) data are affected by surface topography, background noise and sensor saturation. This study uses a physical approach to remove surface topography effect from lidar returns to retrieve vegetation height from ICESat/GLAS data over slope terrains.
In this study, a first-order radiative transfer (RT) model is developed to more accurately account for vegetation canopy scattering by modifying the basic τ-ω model (the zero-order RT solution).
