1. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern KenyaUniversity essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
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
2. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment ToolUniversity essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.
