Urban Expansion Monitoring Based on the Digital Surface Model—A Case Study of the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei Plain

Description: This article presents a study of urban expansion in the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei plain based on ALOS Global Digital Surface Model “ALOS World 3D-30 m” (AW3D30 DSM), Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) DSM, and Landsat 7 ETM+ images. The method proposed in this paper can provide rapid and large-scale statistics to study urban construction expansion in the world.

An Ethnic Spring in the Food Desert? How State Policy Affects Food Environments and Business Entrepreneurships

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "An Ethnic Spring in the Food Desert? How State Policy Affects Food Environments and Business Entrepreneurships." In food system research, the reduced quality of one's food environment (the combination of food security and food access) is a direct symptom of social, political, and economic disparities. Our research has three primary objectives: Aim 1: To determine the role of state policy in the food environment of immigrant communities and communities of color in the United States, Aim 2: To dissect how state and local policies affect the participation of these communities in the U.S. food system, local food environments, and food business ownership, and Aim 3: To explain the current role and the future role of local policy in the food environment of immigrant communities and communities of color in the United States.

Collaborative Research: MRA: Particulates in canopy flowpaths: A missing mass flux at the macrosystem scale?

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "Collaborative Research: MRA: Particulates in canopy flowpaths: A missing mass flux at the macrosystem scale?" This research will investigate a vital, but currently uncharacterized, macrosystem biogeochemical function within forest canopies at the very start of the terrestrial hydrologic cycle: particulate concentration, flux, and composition in rainwaters draining from forest canopies. We will address three major objectives: (1) Estimate the net rainfall (TF+ SF) water and particulate mass flux across forest types; (2) Characterize the particulate composition (C:N:P, including C components, like total C, organic C, black C, and microplastic C) of TF and SF; and (3) Identify major drivers of macrosystem variability in net rainfall particulate flux and composition.

Content Analysis of Expressive Writing Narratives About Stressful Relational Events Using Interpersonal Decentering

Description: Article from a study completed using secondary analysis of data from two studies of expressive writing about stressful relational events to first describe the relations of word use to social-cognitive maturity of role-taking using Feffer’s Interpersonal Decentering scoring system and then to test hypotheses about active processing of relational information versus event closure. This is the Accepted Manuscript version of a published article.

Beyond Traits and States: Interpersonal Decentering Is Also Activated Social Information Processing

Description: Article drawing on a process-focused model of interpersonal decentering's causal validity, the authors manipulated activation experimentally, comparing decentering scores from expressive writing essays under standard instructions (activation condition) versus control instructions, then correlated decentering scores with use of activated language. With condition controlled, both decentering scores correlated significantly with greater proportions of present-tense verbs, positive emotion words, and cognitive words, showing trait effects.

Victims of "adaptation": climate change, sacred mountains, and perverse resilience

Description: This article proposes the concept of "perverse adaptation", where one actor or institution's adaptation to climate change in fact produces aftershocks and secondary impacts upon other groups. Drawing on ethnographic and sociolinguistic research in northern Arizona regarding artificial snowmaking at a ski resort on a sacred mountain, the author elucidates resort supporters' and others' attempts to frame snowmaking as a sustainable adaptation to drought (and, implicitly, climate change) while counterpoising these framings with narratives from local activists as well as Diné (Navajo) individuals.
