Built Environment Factors (BEF) and Residential Land Carbon Emissions (RLCE)
Evaluating the effects of built environment factors (BEF) on residential land carbon emissions (RLCE) is an effective way to reduce RLCE and promote low-carbon development from the perspective of
Human Fecal Pollution Monitoring and Microbial Risk Assessment for Water Reuse Potential in a Coastal Industrial–Residential Mixed-Use Watershed
Microbial monitoring combined with a Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) could provide better insights into fecal pollution patterns and the associated risks, facilitating effective water quality management and appropriate prior treatments for water reuse.


Cities, traffic, and CO2: A multidecadal assessment of trends, drivers, and scaling relationships
A highly nonlinear relationship between population density and emissions is found, and large biases in regional estimates of CO2 from inventories that rely on population as a linear predictor of vehicle activity are identified.
Urban Structure and Energy—A Review
The nature and form of the urban environment is a critical determinant of the sustainability of our society, as it is responsible directly for a large proportion of consumed energy, and influences
Travel and the Built Environment
A meta-analysis of the built environment-travel literature existing at the end of 2009 is conducted in order to draw generalizable conclusions for practice, and finds that vehicle miles traveled is most strongly related to measures of accessibility to destinations and secondarily to street network design variables.

Although much attention on mitigating climate change has focused on alternative fuels, vehicles, and electricity generation, better urban design represents an important yet undervalued opportunity that can reduce long-term carbon emissions.
