Identification of the key factors affecting Chinese carbon intensity and their historical trends using random forest algorithm
TANG Zhipeng, MEI Ziao, LIU Weidong, and XIA Yan
The Chinese government ratified the Paris Climate Agreement in 2016. Accordingly, China aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions per unit of gross domestic product (carbon intensity) to 60%-65% of 2005 levels by 2030. However, since numerous factors influence carbon intensity in China, it is critical to assess their rel

Spatiotemporal evolution of urban carbon emission performance in China and prediction of future trends
WANG Shaojian, GAO Shuang, HUANG Yongyuan, and SHI Chenyi
Climate change resulting from CO2 emissions has become an important global environmental issue in recent years. Improving carbon emission performance is one way to reduce carbon emissions. Although carbon emission performance has been discussed at the national and industrial levels, city-level studies are lacking due t

Analysis of critical river discharge for saltwater intrusion control in the upper South Branch of the Yangtze River Estuary
SUN Zhaohua, FAN Jiewei, YAN Xin, and XIE Cuisong
Saltwater intrusion in the estuary area threatens the use of freshwater resources. If river discharge increases to a critical value, then saltwater intrusion frequency and salinity level decreases. In this study, long-term river discharge and tidal range data in the Yangtze River Estuary (YRE) and salinity data obtaine

Simulation on the stochastic evolution of hydraulic geometry relationships with the stochastic changing bankfull discharges in the Lower Yellow River
SONG Xiaolong, ZHONG Deyu, and WANG Guangqian
Extreme weather is an important noise factor in affecting dynamic access to river morphology information. The response characteristics of river channel on climate disturbances draw us to develop a method to investigate the dynamic evolution of bankfull channel geometries (including the hydraulic geometry variables and
