  1. 1. How the projects seeking to enhance the nature-based solution of wild grassland carbon sinks can benefit from carbon markets at present

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Stanzi Litjens; [2019]
    Keywords : Carbon Markets; Carbon Storage and Sequestration; Natural Carbon Sinks; Nature-based Solutions; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : This exploratory mixed-methods case study research is guided by the question of what kind of role carbon markets can currently play in crafting a business model to support nature-based solutions of wild grassland carbon sinks in Europe. By developing a carbon offset project for the nature organisation Rewilding Europe, this research engages with and connects the literature on carbon markets and carbon storage and sequestration to critically reflect on their combined potential to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions.

  2. 2. Potential Carbon Storage and Albedo Change due to Reforestation of Pasture in Scania.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Elin Backström; [2019]
    Keywords : Reforestation; Carbon storage; Albedo; Radiative forcing; Scania; Climate mitigation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Using reforestation for climate change mitigation is complex due to the multiple impacts forest has on climate. This study analyses the effectiveness in using reforestation on pasture in Scania (south Sweden) as a tool for climate mitigation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy balance closure, water balance, carbon exchange, and water use efficiency : observed and modeled outcomes for a managed, hemiboreal forest in Southern Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Linsey Marie Avila; [2019]
    Keywords : Energy balance; energy balance closure; energy balance ratio; net radiation; sensible heat; latent heat; turbulent fluxes; ground heat flux; energy storage; available energy; Bowen ratio; evaporative fraction; latent heat of vaporization; water balance; evapotranspiration; precipitation; water storage; water discharge; gross primary production; ecosystem respiration; net ecosystem production; carbon exchange; water use efficiency; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The claims for the potential of boreal and sub-boreal forests to combat negative effects of climate change have been substantial with over half of Earth’s primary forests found within boreal and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Given the likely occurrence of more extreme climate events in the future, ascertaining a better understanding of how climate effects, such as profound fluctuations in precipitation, decreases in yearly snow, faster snow melt rates, variability in evapotranspiration due to environmental stress, and related changes in the energy, hydrological, and carbon cycles will change these northern, boreal landscapes is crucial.

  4. 4. Carbon budgets in northern Swedish Forests, 1800-2013

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Gustav Stål; [2018]
    Keywords : climate change mitigation; northern Swedish forests; carbon dept; substitution; harvested wood products; klimatförändringar; norra Sveriges skogar; kolskuld; substitution; träprodukter;

    Abstract : Forests and forest management can mitigate increased carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in the atmosphere through sequestration of carbon and/or substitution. A major question has been whether it is better to use or conserve forests, with some claiming that European forests carry a huge carbon debt as a result of forestry. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of nutrient emission factors for different manure and digestate management systems

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Author : Caroline Ryding; [2018]
    Keywords : Ammonia; carbon sequestration; digestate; methane; manure; nitrous oxide;

    Abstract : An efficient management of organic fertilizers (here animal manure and digestate) is of large concern in today´s agriculture. When evaluating the efficiency of alternative management systems, differences in nutrient losses (emissions) must be taken into consideration. Those can be rather specific for e.g. READ MORE
