Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A preliminary but comprehensive analysis of the 2022 wildfire season in southwest Europe is presented in this paper , which highlights the need for landscape level fuel management also in protected areas, to avoid fire-induced biodiversity losses and landscape scale degradation.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article , the authors summarize the current state of knowledge on the vertical transport of MPs influenced by their physicochemical properties and marine organisms, and discuss their potential impact on MPs deposition.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The Irish Water Quality Index (IEWQI) as discussed by the authors is a model for assessing transitional and coastal water quality in an effort to improve the method and develop a tool that can be used by environmental regulators to abate water pollution in Ireland.

Journal ArticleDOI
