The Recharge Channels of the Sierra Nevada Range (Spain) and the Peruvian Andes as Ancient Nature-Based Solutions for the Ecological Transition

Abstract Nature-Based Solutions for Integrated Water Resources Management (NbS-IWRM) involve natural, or nature-mimicking, processes used to improve water availability in quantity and quality sustainably, reduce the risks of water-related disasters, enhance adaptation to climate change and increase both biodiversity and the social-ecological system’s resilience. United Nations and the European Commission promote their research as a […]

A data-driven methodological routine to identify key indicators for social-ecological system archetype mapping

Abstract The spatial mapping of social-ecological system (SES) archetypes constitutes a fundamental tool to operationalize the SES concept in empirical research. Approaches to detect, map, and characterize SES archetypes have evolved over the last decade towards more integrative and comparable perspectives guided by SES conceptual frameworks and reference lists of variables. However, hardly any studies […]

Deployment of bioeconomy at local scale: Institutions, policies and actors

Abstract Institutions, policies and companies are the main drivers of the transition of production systems towards a circular bioeconomy. However, it is sometimes necessary to recognise the important role of certain individuals in the success of such important initiatives. This article looks at the main actors in the deployment of the circular bioeconomy in Spain's […]

Soils in warmer and less developed countries have less micronutrients globally

Abstract Soil micronutrients are capital for the delivery of ecosystem functioning and food provision worldwide. Yet, despite their importance, the global biogeography and ecological drivers of soil micronutrients remain virtually unknown, limiting our capacity to anticipate abrupt unexpected changes in soil micronutrients in the face of climate change. Here, we analyzed >1300 topsoil samples to […]

Volcanic controls on the microbial habitability of Mars‐analogue hydrothermal environments

Abstract Due to their potential to support chemolithotrophic life, relic hydrothermal systems on Mars are a key target for astrobiological exploration. We analysed water and sediments at six geothermal pools from the rhyolitic Kerlingarfjöll and basaltic Kverkfjöll volcanoes in Iceland, to investigate the localised controls on the habitability of these systems in terms of microbial […]

Abrupt lowstands of Laguna de Zoñar (southern Spain) during the Iberian Roman Humid Period recorded by stable isotopes of gypsum hydration water

Abstract Centimeter-thick layers of gypsum (CaSO4·2H2O) were deposited at the bottom of Laguna de Zoñar (Córdoba Province, southern Spain) from ~2120 to ~1900 cal yr BP [1], coinciding with the apogee of the Roman Empire in the Iberian Peninsula. The presence of gypsum deposits in lake sediments is generally interpreted as evidence of dry climatic […]

A simple approach for the study of the relationship between temperature and precipitation

Abstract The relationship between temperature and precipitation is not simple. Several physical processes can determine whether this relationship is positive or negative, depending on the geographic location and the season. This paper proposes new indices for studying this relationship at a seasonal level, based on daily data of accumulated precipitation and mean temperature: the Rt(T75) […]

Early meteorological observations in West Africa during the 18th century

Abstract This paper aims to present new meteorological data from West Africa during the 18th century. The data sources used are colonial reports, medical treatises on the health conditions in the region, and accounts of exploratory expeditions. The data correspond to five locations in West Africa: Saint-Louis and Gorée (Senegal), Bulama (Guinea-Bissau), Freetown (Sierra Leone), […]

Exploring Combined Influences of Seasonal East Atlantic (EA) and North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) on the Temperature-Precipitation Relationship in the Iberian Peninsula

Abstract The combined influence of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and the East Atlantic (EA) patterns on the covariability of temperatures and precipitation in 35 stations of the Iberian Peninsula during the period 1950–2019 is analysed in this work. Four EA-NAO composites were defined from teleconnection patterns’ positive and negative phases: EA+NAO+, EA+NAO-, EA-NAO+ and […]
