  1. 1. Evaluating vegetation carbon storage by primary forests in Sweden using LPJ-GUESS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Sacha van der Vleuten; [2022]
    Keywords : Carbon storage; LPJ-GUESS; Primary forests; Sweden; Natural forests; Potential natural vegetation; Dynamic vegetation model; Model optimization; LPJ-GUESS evaluation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Over the past 200 years, the structure of forests in Sweden has changed drastically, with forestry becoming the dominant land use. This has led to the loss of primary forests, which has major impacts on different ecosystem services, including carbon storage. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of the LPJ-GUESS crop model under ambient and elevated CO2 concentrations.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Annika Nitschke; [2022]
    Keywords : LPJ-GUESS; free-air carbon dioxide enrichment experiments; elevated CO2; climate change; wheat yield; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : In the future atmospheric CO2 concentrations might exceed 550 ppm according to the RCP8.5 scenario by mid-century from our current 410 ppm, while our world population is projected to surpass the 9.7 billion threshold within the same time span. This challenge leads to the raising of questions addressing future food security. READ MORE

  3. 3. The land carbon sink of Lithuanian forests in the light of climate change: A model approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Patricija Marijauskaite; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Physical geography; Ecosystem analysis; Ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; Climate change; Forest sequestration; Land carbon sink; Norway spruce; Scot s pine; Silver birch; monoculture; silviculture; NPP; NBP; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forests form the backbone of the European terrestrial carbon sink (State Forest Service & Ministry of Environment, 2018). As the European Union (EU) strives to become climate neutral by 2050, forests are accounted for the natural carbon absorption mechanism (European Commission, n.d.). READ MORE

  4. 4. Testing the potential to evaluate vegetation optical depth with ecosystem water dynamics in a temperate forest

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ainahu Abdul Hamid; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical geography; Ecosystem analysis; Vegetation optical depth; Temperate Forest; Climate; LPJ-GUESS; Evapotranspiration; Leaf water potential; Isohydricity; Hydraulic failure; Carbon starvation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Warming trends have been associated with drought which induces and heightens agents and factors that cause tree mortality. Remotely sensed observations are increasingly being used in vegetation studies and are obtained from Earth observation satellites. READ MORE

  5. 5. Expressing ecosystem model output and Swedish forestry goals with composite indictors

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nicolas Tarasewicz; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; forest management; multifunctionality; LPJ-GUESS; ecosystem services; composite indicator; climate change; biodiversity; SDGs; Sweden; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forest ecosystems provide a wide range of services necessary for maintaining environmental health and human well-being. Ecosystem models help inform how various management strategies respond in different regions to changing climate conditions. READ MORE
