What do you picture when you think of Antarctica? ❄️☃️🐧. . . . This is one of my images from the Coppermine Peninsula Antarctic Specially Protected Area (ASPA 112) on the Antarctic Peninsula. The area is protected for its unique floral and faunal biodiversity, including giant sea birds like the petrel and albatross, furr seals, elephant seals, penguins, and these extensive turf-like moss beds which extend as far as the eye can see and are absolutely teaming with microscopic life, just like a forest! . . . Mosses are the dominant form of vegetation in Antarctica and the Coppermine Peninsula is one of the very few places in Antarctica with such extensive moss beds. . . . Because of this, these mosses are important for conservation, which is what my research aims to facilitate 🌱 #AntarcticMoss #WiSTEM #MossTalk #Antarctica #Biodiversity #Conservation #Microclimate #NationalGeographic #Nature #Pure #Untouched #Scientist #Biologist #PhDLife #Lucky #Plants #PlantsOfInstagram #HardWorkPaysOff #MotherNature #BlueBird #Explore #Adventure #ChaseYourDreams #BelowZero #Travel #Opportunity #Canon800D

FRANCIA - SANCERRE⠀ Siamo nella Valle della Loira, ma molto vicino alla Borgogna, a soli 50 Km da Chablis di cui condivide i famosi terreni kimmeridgiani. La denominazione è famosa per i Sauvignon Blanc vivamente acidi ed aromatici. ⠀ ⠀ Il clima è temperato con influenza continentale e la stagione della crescita è relativamente secca. Qui nascono Sauvignon Blanc dalle mille sfaccettature: eleganti e raffinati se provengono da terreni calcarei, complessi e minerali se il suolo ha una composizione mista tra calcare e argilla, meno immediati e a maturazione più lunga se la silice prevale nella composizione del terreno. ⠀ ⠀ Il disciplinare, però, non si ferma qui: è possibile ad esempio produrre dello Sancerre rosso da uve Pinot Noir, che piano piano sta acquistando una buona reputazione, e persino dei Sancerre rosé. I classici vini di Sancerre hanno profumi di uva spina, erba, ortiche e note minerali. Esempi più ricchi e maturi, provenienti da siti più caldi, presentano spesso note di frutto della passione e scorza di limone. ⠀ ⠀ A confronto con zone del Nuovo Mondo diventate famose per questo vitigno, i Sancerre risultano meno erbacei rispetto a Marlborough in Nuova Zelanda e meno agrumeti rispetto a Casablanca in Cile. ⠀ ⠀ #italianwineacademy #sauvignonblanc #vindeloire #aromaticwine #sancerrewine # vindesancerre #centralvineyards #loirevalleywines #microclimate #terroir #winemaking #winemaker #wineregion #winetourism #winetourist #winetour #winetours #winetouring #finewine #winegram #winegrapes #grapes #wineroad #wineroute #wineproducer #winelovers #winegeek #winetime #vinotime #wsetverona.

The Hawaiian Islands claim 10 of the "supposed" 14 world climate zones - the only place on Earth with so many concentrated in one small area. We experienced this on a recent trip to Maui which has several microclimates. It could be dry & sunny in one part, but lush/green & rainy in another part. The trick was finding the sun... . . 📷: @roxane_seguy

Enjoying a morning swim and the plants wich grow on the dike. The microclimate is so unique that there are certain plants, and especially moss growing on the boulders, wich you wouldnt' find on many other places. It is world on its' own there. Every season is different, and I enjoy that as well! #lake #lovenature #dike #holland #microclimate #sedumalbum #sedum

On Saturday as part of London Festival of Architecture 2019, I gave a hands-on walking tour on the topic of ‘urban air pollution’, the world’s single biggest environmental health risk, linked to nearly 9,500 early death each year in London! I had a great turn out and attendees travelled from far and wide to learn more about urban form and its significant influence on the formation of undesirable microclimate which increases the concentration of air pollution in outdoor spaces and respectively triggers adverse impact on human health. It was great to meet so many enthusiastic and like-minded people from various disciplines who care about similar issues and most of all eager to create a better future for our cities. We concluded that improving the air quality in cities is no easy and simple, feat and a multidisciplinary approach and collaboration is needed. However, we also agreed that with recent advancement in technology, especially on how we can study the full breadth of the impact of our current actions on future generation and environment; the time is right to look into other opportunities to accelerate our effort in improving air quality. #LFA2019 #urbanform #microclimate #airpollution #humanhealth #vegetation #trees #uniofwestminster #mayoroflondon #particulatematter

Dispatches from Beaujolais. Quite the heat wave. Temperatures are hitting 40 degrees (104 F). Reminds me of the summer I spent in Bordeaux in 2003 which was famously sweltering throughout France. Even the cold, thick walls of the Chateaux were sweating. I'm told there is no emergency as of yet - the spring was so rainy, there is plenty of moisture in the earth. Let's hope this breaks soon!! 🙏

Look~ 2 Views 💚 It's very surprising that bulbs like this can grow outside in Phoenix, in temperatures that range from freezing in December and January, to 110°+ in July and August! This plant has been outside, shaded from afternoon sun, for over 2 years, and is thriving! P.S. I've been 10 months on IG as of today!💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 . #gardening #plants #gardendesign #summer #gardenlife #beautiful #macro #landscape #nature #green #bulbs #instagarden #botany #instagood #microclimate #plantsofinstagram #nature #jardin #love #beautiful #green #organic

It will be hot, hot, hot, in the Netherlands the coming week! ‘Weather in the City, How Design Shapes the Urban Climate’ is highly a relevant book due to global climate change: solutions for a more comfortable urban climates in temperate regions. The book, by Sanda Lenzholzer, shows how clever urban design can make the city more comfortable. We all know examples of urban and landscape architectural design that doesn’t sufficiently take the urban climate into account. This book is a reference work as well as an inspirational book for everyone working on a liveable city: commissioners, policymakers, professionals and students in urban design, landscape architecture and planning. #weather #netherlands #weatherinthecity #climatechange #urbandesign #nai010publishers #microclimate #urbanplanning #book #architecture #livablecity #landscapearchitecture #planning

Crape Myrtle already in bloom in Philadelphia. I remember when this species was non-existent in Philadelphia in the late 1960’s. These are planted in front of a protected south facing wall producing lots of reflected light and heat. Is this early bloom a result of microclimate, global warming, or a bit of both? Is it a product of the hybridizer’s art - hardiness and / or early bloom? #crapemyrtle #lagerstroemia #lagerstroemiaindica #microclimate #globalwarming #globalwarmingisreal # #ourphilly # #plant #plants #plantsofinstagram #plantlove #plantsman #botanist #plantfanatic #plantaholic #plantfantastic #suburbangardener #urbangardener #publicgarden #publicplanting

Its winter time here in Melbourne, Australia. My strawberries 🍓 are still trying to produce these tiny berries. Ive come to the conclusion that it’s because they sit by the bricks which warm up during the sunny winter days and are very protected from any harsh wind. 🍂 #ruthstoutmethod #gardengrubs #organicgardening #organicvegetables #dustysurbangarden #growyourown #winter #melbourne #australia #microclimate #sunnydays #wintersolstice #vegetablegardening #permaculture #adayinthegarden

Urban Nature Co-existence . On the outside, Marina One looked like a regular but massive four piece mixed use building, but the hidden nature of its heart within really gave it a 180. . The scale of this soft urban area was extremely large and the curvilinear design focuses on capturing the air currents surrounding the ever growing rainforest nature that shades the people. From waterfalls to fresh plants, the cooled space has become an escape from the hot and humid Singapore. . Singapore is one country that continues impress me with their push on such innovations and showcases the possibility of our world's future while dealing with the everlasting climate change. .

Did you know that Boeri Studio @stefanoboeriarchitetti an Italian Architectural firm, has developed a model for sustainable building to merge humans and nature within an urban environment? This spot is the project developed in 2014 called The Vertical Forest (Bosco Verticale) in Central Milan. Vertical Forest is a project for metropolitan reforestation contributing to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the implication of expanding the city upon the territory. This spot consists is host to 4,500 shrubs and 15,000 plants from a wide range distributed according to the sun exposure of the facade. The vegetal system of the Vertical Forest contributes to the construction of a microclimate, produces humidity, absorbs CO2 and produces oxygen to ultimately filter dust particles which are present in the urban environment. Inspired by this vertical forest concept, the firm has been recently commissioned for projects in Wuham and Shanghai (Picture 2). This innovative initiative is reflecting a shifting attitude towards smart living and sustainable practices; this is further demonstrated by the increasing number of similar projects all around Canada (Picture 3) and Europe (Picture 4). This spot is located in Milan, Italy. A vertical forest… could this be a solution to combat CO2 emissions within the urban perimeters? Help your spot become a SecoPOT #verticalforest #smartarchitecture #ecodesign #green #greentech #milan #shanghai #boscoverticale #architecture #reforestation #regeration #biodiversity #plants #co2 #microclimate #urban More info: https://www.scmp.com/business/article/2176303/china-has-become-hotspot-vertical-forest-building-concept-says-design-firm

I often discuss micro-climates with gardeners as they visit the store, in the context of growing plants outside their natural range. While we talk about it every day in the "bigger picture", it took a fingerlime thorn to make me pause and consider how small a microclimate can be. Whether it is the slow growth, location in the nursery, or some mystical plant communication, the fingerlimes always have the most abundant primitive companions. I'm not talking weeds, but mosses, liverworts and other bryophytes, and the golden slime mould! I suspect some sort of slime mould - I would love ID suggestions. These tiny ecosystems blow my mind, keep an eye out and let me know what you find! #bryophyte #slime #fingerlime #ecosystem #microclimate #moss #liverwort #nurserylife #tinyplants #seedling #slimemould

Introducing the 2015 Tannat from Bella Collina Vineyard! This West Side Tannat is totally different compared to the Allegretto Tannat from the East Side of Paso! This Tannat is bright and tart, with lingering notes of cherry and oak. Come in to the tasting room to experience a side-by-side tasting of these two Tannat's!

How do you push the limits of your hardiness zone? Figs are a challenge in zone 6b. I placed this one in the warmest, sunniest corner of my yard.

Did you know that Knoll House was visited regularly by Enid Blyton in the 1950s/60s? It is thought that a Studland policeman at the time was the inspiration for PC Plod in the Noddy books. We have a wonderful collection of memorabilia on show at the hotel. What's your favourite Blyton book? @enidblytonofficial #enidblyton #noddy #knollhouse
