Using Shanghai as a case, this study introduced a new analytical framework to integrate models of coastal flooding, local population growth, and medical resource supply-demand estimation.
In this paper, a method of identifying snowmelt flood hazards is proposed, and a large-scale snowmelt flood hazard zonation scheme based on historical recordings and multisource remote sensing data is established.
This study explored integrating transportation system analysis with economic modeling to capture the regional economic ripple effect. A state-of-the-art spatial computable general equilibrium model is used to simulate the operation of the economic system.
This paper explores how claims for transformative adaptation toward more equitable and sustainable societies can be assessed, using a theoretical framework describing transformative adaptation across four elements of the public-sector adaptation lifecycle
This study proposes an analytical framework for urban disaster recovery and resilience based on social media data that can analyze short-term disaster recovery and assess disaster resilience from the perspectives of infrastructure.
This study aimed to investigate the effects of heat events defined with different intensities and durations on PTB throughout pregnancy, and to determine thresholds for the high-risk heat events.
This study combines a more comprehensive evaluation of resilience levels with a study of the structural factors of flood resilience. In countries with major flood-prone cities, research is necessary for urban communities to coexist with flood threats.
Based on the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS), this study estimated associations between long-term apparent temperature, extreme temperature, and depressive symptoms in middle-aged and older adults.
