Global Warming Alert: Taking Action in Nonthaburi Municipality, Thailand

27.02.2008
The Nonthaburi Municipality, Thailand, in cooperation with the Southeast Asia Urban Environmental Management Applications Project at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), will organize a half-day policy workshop to help local stakeholders address air pollution problems and global warming issues caused by burning agricultural waste.

The half-day workshop will be conducted in Thai language and will be held on March 03, 2008 at the Richmond Hotel in Nonthaburi. Climate change experts Dr. Monthip Tabucanon of the Ministry of Natural Resources (MONRE) and Dr. Nguyen Kim Oanh from AIT will be on hand to discuss relevant environmental measures on climate change and how these can be effectively implemented in Thailand. Nonthaburi Province Governor Churdvit Ridhiprasart and Nonthaburi Mayor Somnuk Thanadechakul will also attend the event.

Aside from global warming and climate change policy issues, the forum will also discuss alternative measures to control open burning of agricultural residues. These alternative measures will not only improve local air quality and lessen the impact of global warming; these can also be a source of additional income for local rice farmers.

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
