Volume 24 Nos. 1 & 2

One of the most pressing problems nowadays is global warming brought about by the increasing levels of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), in the atmosphere. This issue of Sylvatrop features a study that explored the carbon sequestration potential of Jatropha curcas. Two studies dealt with vulnerability assessment on the different watershed in the Philippines and their vulnerability to various hazards and risk factors. The last study is a water pricing study that aims to determine the value of water supply as input to the management of the Caniaw Watershed in Ilocos Sur.

Volume 23 Nos. 1 & 2

One of the studies aimed to establish trends of levels of acidity (pH), conductivity (EC), and concentrations of anions (SO4 2-, NO3-, Cl-) and cations (NH4+, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+) in rainwater on urban and rural acid deposition monitoring sites in the Philippines. The results of the study proved to be significant in establishing local acid deposition baseline data to prove or disprove acid deposition occurs in the Philippines and to provide useful inputs for decision-making aimed at preventing or reducing adverse impacts of acid deposition.
