  1. 1. Environmental Kuznets Curve in Sweden - A regression analysis of the relationship between CO2 emissions and economic growth in Sweden during the years of 1960-2018

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Daniel Forsström; Oscar Johansson; [2020-07-06]
    Keywords : Environmental Kuznets Curve; EKC; CO2 emissions in Sweden;

    Abstract : The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) is a theory suggesting the existence of an inverted U-shaped relationshipbetween emissions and economic growth. In today’s world of environmental awareness, it is an interesting topicsince it suggests that when economic growth reaches a certain point, pollution actually starts decreasing as economicwelfare increases.

  2. 2. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

    Author : Elizabeth McNamee; [2020]
    Keywords : cement; concrete; decarbonizing technologies; novel alternative green cements concretes; demand-side; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Accounting for approximately 8% of global CO2 emissions, the cement industry is one of the greatest contributors to climate change, despite the lack of focus on this sector in popular discourse. Deep cuts in this sector are challenging to achieve due to necessitated alteration of material components and formulation of the traditional product in addressing non-energy related ‘process emissions’.
