ASIACOVER - Towards the Development and Applications of a Multi-purpose Environmental and Natural Resources Information Base for Food Security and Sustainable Development
The renewable natural resources of many Asian countries have come under severe strain over the past two or three decades and most indicators point towards a continuation of this trend. Whilst a large amount of data related to land cover exist in Asia, most are not consistent over large geographic areas and therefore cannot be aggregated at regional and/or sub-regional scale. Hence, the aim of the ... more

El Niņo situation and prospects: April 2002
April 2002. This report is a coupled atmospheric and oceanic phenomenon; predictions are based on several independent observations. To estimate future El Niņo-Southern Oscillation (or ENSO) conditions, a common practice is to compare different reputable models that currently represent the state-of-the-art as far as dynamical and statistical ENSO prediction systems are concerned.

TEMS (Terrestrial Ecosystem Monitoring Sites database)
The New TEMS database is now on line. The Terrestrial Ecosystem Monitoring Sites database (TEMS) is an international directory of sites (T.Sites) and networks that carry out long-term terrestrial monitoring and research activities. Based on a core list of 110 variables, the database provides information on the "who, what and where" of long term terrestrial monitoring for use by both the scientific... more
