A Review on Waste Management Options to Lessen Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Paper

This study hired a spreadsheet model to simulate the greenhouse gas emissions (GGEs) from the newspaper production and intake system. The GGEs made by newspaper in Australia during 1994/95 were equal to about 13.5Mt of CO2, related to almost 2.5% of Australia’s emission total. Over fifty percent of the amount contains CH4 emissions from landfilled.. Read More

Spatial and temporal analysis of a 17-year lightning climatology over Bangladesh with LIS data

Using NASA’s TRMM Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) data from 1998 to 2014, this paper presents a 17-year lightning climatology of Bangladesh, at 0.5° × 0.5° spatial resolution. Diurnal, seasonal, monthly and annual variations in the occurrence of lightning flashes were explored. The diurnal regime of lightning is dominated by afternoon/evening events. Overall, peak lightning activity occurs in.. Read More
