MAPPS President Jeff Lower, (PAR, LLC, Bossier City, LA) said, "Greater emphasis has been paid to monitoring sea level rise, coastal conservation and emergency preparedness and response in the wake of natural and manmade disasters. This Digital Coast Act will coordinate the pooling of resources from multiple agencies (Federal, state, and local) and other stakeholders to map the various needs once, and then utilize and apply the high-quality data and products numerous times, thus reducing taxpayer waste while maximizing the return on investment for all stakeholders."
"By using science, we can address the vulnerability of certain coastal areas to storm surge of Typhoon Yolanda level,” said Japanese researcher Masaya Yoshikai during his presentation."
...4% in the 2010s. The average C density of 163.7 Mg C/ha in Hainan's forest ecosystems in this study was slightly higher than that of China " s mainland forests, but was remarkably lower than that in the tropical forests worldwide. Total forest ecosystem C storage in Hainan increased from 109.51 Tg in 1993 to 279.17 Tg in 2008. Soil C accounted for more than 70% of total forest ecosystem C The spatial distribution of forest C storage in Hainan was uneven, reflecting differences in land use change and forest management. The potential carbon sequestration of forest ecosystems was 77.3 Tg C if all forested lands were restored to natural tropical forests. To increase the C sequestration potential on Hainan Island, future forest management should focus on the conservation of natural forests, selection of tree species, planting of understory species, and implementation of sustainable practices."
