The transdisciplinary contributions chosen for inclusion during this e-book handle those matters with an summary of the various fields of analysis on the topic of sustainability. This number of paintings is meant to pave the best way for additional collaboration between scientists and international locations as well.

The cost of damage in the different areas is very similar because Japan is primarily mountainous and only has small plain areas. Therefore, inundation areas do not expand to wider regions, even though the floodwater depth increases. This means that damage costs in the same areas increase as rainfall intensity increases. Large and highly populated cities have large damage costs due to the concentration of assets. These cities include Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka, which are located in lowlands. 0 Rate of increase in extreme rainfall Fig.

3). As time passes, winds mix the lake to greater depths, and the thermocline gradually deepens. As the atmosphere cools, the surface water continues to cool, leaving it unstable. This cold water plunges in a turbulent plume, mixing with the water beneath. When surface and bottom waters approach the same temperature and density, winds can mix the entire lake; the lake is said to “turn over” (see Fig. 3 and March 07 line). Mixing distributes oxygen throughout the lake. Lakes that do not mix, or that have high oxygen demand, may have low oxygen levels in the hypolimnion.
