Trees Found to Reduce up to 12 Degree Celsius Land Surface Area Temperature

  A group of scientists with the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science, ETH Zurich, has found proof that demonstrates that stands of trees can decrease land surface region temperatures in urban areas up to 12°C. In their paper distributed in the diary Nature Communications, the gathering depicts how they examined satellite symbolism for many urban areas across Europe and what they realized.  Earlier exploration has recommended that adding green spaces to urban communities can assist with decreasing high air temperatures during the warm months—urban areas are normally more blazing than encompassing regions because of the gigantic spans of black-top and concrete that assimilate heat. In this new exertion, the analysts checked out conceivable temperature impacts ashore surface regions rather than air temperatures. Such temperatures are not felt as distinctly as air temperatures by individuals in the area since it is beneath their feet rather than encompassing them.  The work by t

According to a defence spokesperson, the JCO and a jawan were critically injured during a counter-terrorist operation in the Nar Khas forest area in Mendhar sub-division on Thursday evening. Both of them succumbed to their injuries subsequently.

The operation is ongoing, he added.

While the body of the jawan has been retrieved, that of the JCO is yet to be retrieved from the area, the spokesperson said.

Efforts are on to retrieve the body, he said, adding that the area is mountainous and the forest is dense, which makes the operation difficult and dangerous.

The Jammu and Kashmir police on Tuesday said terrorists involved in a recent attack on security forces in Poonch, in which five Army personnel including a JCO were killed, were present in the area for the last two to three months.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Rajouri-Poonch range Vivek Gupta told reporters that the terrorists have been confined to a particular area.

"The group has been present in the area for two to three months," he said.

Rising incidents of terror

Several counter-terrorist operations and encounters have taken place in the twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch this year.

On October 11, five Army personnel, including a JCO, were killed during an encounter between security forces and terrorists at Dera Ki Gali (DKG) in the Surankote area of Poonch.

On September 12, an unidentified terrorist was killed in an encounter with security forces following a search operation in the upper reaches of Manjakote in Rajouri.

On August 19, a JCO was killed in an encounter with terrorists in the Thanamandi area of Rajouri.
