Telecoupling. Understanding how small and connected the world is. New methods, new paths to sustainability
Published on September 5, 2017
Between 1900 and 2010, the global volume of natural resources used in buildings and transport infrastructure increased 23 fold. Sand and gravel are the largest portion of these primary material inputs (79% or 28.6 Gigatons per year in 2010)

Apply the telecoupling framework to better understand the impacts of local and more distant socioeconomic and environmental interactions that alter fisheries productivity.
LAND -- The Sino-Brazilian Telecoupled Soybean System and Cascading Effects for the Exporting Country
Published on August 31, 2017
We use the telecoupling framework to analyze (i) the international trade dynamics between Brazil and China as the cause of the increased production of Brazilian soybean since 2000.

We evaluate whether recent land-system science research into telecoupling provides a basis to set normative goals or priorities for addressing sustainability in coupled human-natural systems.
SUSTAINABILITY - Metacoupled Tourism and Wildlife Translocations Affect Synergies and Trade-offs among Sustainable Development Goals across Spillover Systems
Published on September 17, 2020
We used a new integrated framework to guide SDG synergy and trade-off analysis within and across systems, as influenced by cross-boundary tourism and wildlife translocations.
NATURE SUSTAINABILITY -- Impacts of International Trade on Achieving Global Sustainable Development Goals
Published on July 13, 2020
International trade positively affected global progress towards seven environment-related SDGs. International trade improved SDG scores of most evaluated developed countries but reduced the SDG scores of over 60% of the evaluated developing countries

Urban areas such as megacities (those with populations greater than 10 million) are hotspots of global water use and thus face intense water management challenges
Published on February 27, 2015
Systems integration—holistic approaches to integrating various components of coupled human and natural systems—is critical to understand socioeconomic and environmental interconnections and to create sustainability solutions.

Book chapter -- preview of first 20 pages
Published on March 29, 2019
We constructed and analyzed interprovincial virtual water and energy transfer networks, using China (the largest energy consumer and is undergoing severe water scarcity) as a demonstration.
APPLIED GEOGRAPHY -- The Telecoupling GeoApp: A Web-GIS application to systematically analyze telecouplings and sustainable development
Published on May 16, 2018
To operationalize the framework, we have developed the Telecoupling GeoApp, a new web-based component of the Telecoupling Toolbox that provides researchers and practitioners with a useful platform to address globally important issues.

Even a protected area like the Wolong Nature Reserve for giant pandas in southwest China has multiple telecoupling processes with the rest of the world.
GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE - Quantifying interregional flows of multiple ecosystem services – A case study for Germany
Published on March 20, 2020
A first multi-ES quantification of a nation's use of ecosystem services from abroad.
ECOLOGY AND SOCIETY - Network analysis as a tool for quantifying the dynamics of metacoupled systems: an example using global soybean trade
Published on October 14, 2018
Network analysis is a powerful and flexible tool that has been used to quantify social, economic, and ecological systems. We evaluate the utility of network analysis for quantifying metacoupled systems by assessing global soybean trade among 217 countries.
Published on October 19, 2018
We suggest systems approaches such as nexus approaches and flow-centered governance to help China achieve ecological civilization and become an environmental leader on a metacoupled planet.
RETHINKING GLOBAL LAND USE IN AN URBAN ERA - Significance of Telecoupling for Exploration of Land-Use Change
Published on April 22, 2014
