The existing methods for detection of the cloud scenes are applied at relatively small spectral range within shortwave upwelling radiative wavelength flux. We have reported a new method for detection of the cloud scenes based on the Radiance Enhancement (RE). This method can be used to cover a significantly wider spectral range from 1100 nm to 1700 nm by using datasets from the space-orbiting micro-spectrometer Argus 1000. Due to high sunlight reflection of the smoke originated from the forest… Expand

Fire deficit increases wildfire risk for many communities in the Canadian boreal forest
TLDR
It is shown that decades of aggressive fire suppression in the boreal biome of Canada has reduced the proportion of recently burned forests (RBF) near human communities, and thereby inadvertently increased the risk of wildfire. Expand
Fossil Fuel Combustion Is Driving Indoor CO2 Toward Levels Harmful to Human Cognition
TLDR
It is concluded that indoor CO2 levels may indeed reach levels harmful to cognition by the end of this century, and the best way to prevent this hidden consequence of climate change is to reduce fossil fuel emissions. Expand
