Abrupt shift to hotter and drier climate over inner East Asia beyond the tipping point

The analysis demonstrates that the magnitude of the warm and dry anomalies compounding in the recent two decades is unprecedented over the quarter of a millennium, and this trend clearly exceeds the natural variability range.

Impact of Climate on the NDVI of Northern Mongolia

The climate of Mongolia is harsh continental with sharply defined seasons, high annual and diurnal temperature fluctuations, low rainfall and a very short growing season. Mongolia has experienced

Ambient Particulate Air Pollution and Daily Mortality in 652 Cities.

The data show independent associations between short-term exposure to PM10 and PM2.5 and daily all-cause, cardiovascular, and respiratory mortality in more than 600 cities across the globe, and reinforce the evidence of a link between mortality and PM concentration established in regional and local studies.
