Evaluation of Soil Carbon Pool potential under different Land use system and Its Correlation with different Soil Properties in North Wales, UK
Kasahun Kitila Hunde
The study was conducted at Henfeas research center in the north Wales, UK where Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.) and Red alder (Alnus rubra) were planted in integration with the grasslands. It was aimed to determine the soil organic carbon pool under different land use system. The soil samples were collected to the depth of 30cm at different depth intervals (0-10, 10-20 and 20-30cm) having five treatments: under and outside the canopy of both Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.) and Red alder (Alnus rubra) and under the control grassland.

New approach: Exploitation of non-conventional water in irrigation
Among the most common problems and currently rocking the world, quoting the reuse of raw wastewater, particularly in agriculture, which consumes more than 80% of water resources exploited. The reuse of untreated wastewater in irrigation for plants provides a source of nutrients that can reduce the purchase of fertilizers and organic materials. But it poses serious risks to health such as untreated sewage is a factor of transmitting pathogens and hazardous chemicals in the human body.

Understanding Cooperative Behavior against Climate Change through a Public - Goods Game
Medha Kumar, Varun Dutt
Atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions are increasing at an alarming rate. If this increase remains unchecked, then it would lead to disastrous consequences like temperature change, sea-level rise, and diseases world over. Therefore, it is important to study how global cooperation emerges against climate rechange.

Earthquake triggering rainfall in Taiwan
This study objectively investigates the potential of rainfall to trigger earthquakes. Earthquakes (ML >3.0) and rainfall from 1995 to 2012 were examined in Taiwan. The earthquakes have a significant positive relationship with rainfall after the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake as demonstrated using the Chi-square test.
