  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. A Comparison of the Ecological, Social and Economic Sustainability in Adaptation Strategies in The Maldives and Kiribati

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Author : Charlotte Blomberg; Sandra Blomvall; [2020]
    Keywords : Maldives; Kiribati; sustainable development; sea level rise; climate change; adaptation; SIDS; NAPA;

    Abstract : Havsnivån stiger över hela världen på grund av termisk expansion och smältande glaciärer orsakade av den globala uppvärmningen. Maldiverna och Kiribati är några av de lägst liggande atolländerna i världen vilket gör dem särskilt utsatta för den förväntade havsnivåhöjningen. READ MORE

  3. 3. GIS-based approach to estimate direct economic damages of fluvial flooding under various future scenarios: A case study of the Neckar river basin (Germany)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Ruben Prütz; [2020]
    Keywords : climate change; flood damage; fluvial flood; GIS; HEC-GeoRAS; HEC-RAS; MOLUSCE; Neckar; river basin; stage-damage; strength of knowledge; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Fluvial floods can cause significant damages to inundated assets. The frequency and magnitude of fluvial floods are related to precipitation amounts, which are expected to change throughout the 21st century due to global warming. READ MORE

  4. 4. Challenges of Achieving a Green Future and Financial Security - A Multiple Case Study of Swedish Pension Firms' Green Bond Assessment Processes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Keywords : Green bonds; ESG Assessment; Conventional Bond Assessment; Socially Responsible Investing; Institutional Logics; Pension Firms; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Deriving from an increased awareness of the devastating effects of global warming consequences, the interest for green bonds is growing at an explosive pace. However, researchers and practitioners have raised concerns about the challenges of assessing green bonds. READ MORE

  5. 5. Secondary aerosol formation from dimethyl sulfide - Smog chamber experiments and detailed process modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Dana Lüdemann; [2020]
    Keywords : aerosol modelling; atmospheric physics and chemistry; marine aerosols; ADCHAM; aerosol; dimethyl sulfide; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the secondary aerosol formation from dimethylsulfide (DMS) using the aerosol dynamics, gas- and particle-phase chemistry kinetic multi-layer model, ADCHAM. The first simulations, concerning the butanol oxidation via hydroxyl radicals (OH), were performed to characterize the UV-light source of the AURA smog chamber (Aarhus university, Denmark), later used for the DMS experiments.
