Climate changes impact on the terrestrial water cycle and water resource Groundwater is a critical freshwater resource for humans and ecosystems. This international cooperation research led by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, College of Science, National Taiwan University, investigates the potential groundwater storage changes in the 21st century. The study is published online in Nature Communication in July 2020.Groundwater provides critical freshwater supply, particularly in dry regions where surface water availability is limited. This research used a fully coupled climate model to investigate groundwater changes over seven vital aquifers identified…

NTU oceanographer and international team discovered ongoing and future tropical diversity decline Source:Services for Media, HKU How can patterns in the marine biodiversity of the past help us to understand how it may change in the future? A recent research by Drs Moriaki Yasuhara (School of Biological Sciences and Swire Institute of Marine Science, The University of Hong Kong), Chih-Lin Wei (Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University) and numerous international collaborators finds that the tropical diversity decline now seen in the ocean is not purely human induced, but nonetheless will…

Truncated age structure and warming temperature drive marine fishes into uneven spatial distribution, weakening their sustainability Jheng-Yu Wang, Ting-Chun Kuo, and Chih-hao Hsieh Prof. Chih-hao Hsieh and his master student Jheng-Yu Wang from NTU Institute of Oceanography together with Prof. Ting-Chun Kuo from NTOU found that fishing-induced age truncation and warming temperature drove marine fishes into uneven spatial distribution, weakening their sustainability. This study, published in Nature Communications (May 26), provides empirical evidence for long-lasting hypotheses explaining complex mechanisms underlying spatial distribution of marine fishes. These findings bear important implications…

A millennial coral record of Indian Ocean climate oscillation  This summer of 2019/20 in Australia, a positive Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) event set up extremely hot and dry conditions for the historically worst fires that ravaged Australia. An unprecedented 20% of the forest has been burned, resulting in ecological havoc, environmental pollution, and enormous property damage. Climate simulations also pointed out that this extreme climate will severely change the climate and environment of the countries around the Indian Ocean under the current global warming trend. But will this implication be…
