Spatial Relation between Wind Stress and Storm Surge during Hurricanes Laura and Delta in 2020

Received: 25 July 2021;  Published: 02 September 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2103022

Abstract

Spatial relation between wind stress and storm surge during two hurricanes in 2020 is investigated. It is found that, during Laura’s landfall, the area inside of 65 knots (34 m s -1) isotach or line of equal wind speed can produce up to 18 ft (5.5 m) inundation and [...]

Normalized Difference Vegetative Index-related Assessment for Climate Change Impact on Indigenous Communities from High Resolution IKONOS Satellite Imagery in West Papua

Received: 29 October 2020;  Published: 09 July 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2103018

Abstract

High-resolution satellite imagery permits acquisition of critical data to observe climate-change and environmental impact on conflict-impacted indigenous communities with co-existing socio-economic factors, often within unstable regimes. Conflict may prevent direct access in remote regio [...]

Modelling the Cumulative Number of COVID-19 Cases

Received: 14 April 2021;  Published: 10 June 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2102014

Abstract

Each country has its own characteristics of COVID-19 infection trajectory and epidemic waves. Differences in government-implemented restrictions and social regulations result in variability of the virus transmissions and spread dynamics. This in turn results in various shapes of the grow [...]
