The current review on atmospheric M/NPs is therefore focusing on sampling, sample preparation and identification methods. The approach will enable knowledge gaps to be identified, and recommendations to be made to support standardized and comparable future research
The article describes how to turn waste plastics into high-quality liquid oils by thermal and catalytic pyrolysis.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd every year to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The theme for Earth day 2023 is Invest In Our Planet. Elsevier is proud to highlight these freely accessible book chapters and journal articles in honour of this event.
This study showed that agricultural intensification reduced fungal Shannon diversity and weakened soil multifunctionality, where fungal diversity was the major driver of soil multifunctionality. The Authors suggested that sustaining microbial diversity, especially fungal diversity can reduce the effect of agricultural intensification on soil multifunctionality.
This paper provides 57 site velocity measurements, with interpretation, for the Hatay Triple Junction in the region of the 6 February 2023 M 7.8 Pazarcik earthquake sequence in Southeastern Turkey. Given the significance of this earthquake sequence, and the potential uses for future earthquake predictions, this paper would apply to SDG 15 -Life on land.

This paper sought to explore similarities, variations and determinants of sustainable plastics consumption behavior within a sample of approximately 7600 respondents from eight European countries. We find that most consumers engage in sustainable plastics behavior during the usage phase, by reusing plastic containers and refilling water bottles. The regression analysis suggests that personal responsibility, having high values for nature, being a member of a nature organization and feeling knowledgeable about plastic pollution are important predictors of sustainable plastics consumption.
