  1. 1. Carbon sequestration processes in tropical seagrass beds

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Författare :Liberatus Dominick Lyimo; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Seagrass; Carbon sequestration; Carbon sink; Eutrophication; Productivity; Nitrous oxide; Methane; Greenhouse gases; Tropical; Eastern Africa; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Seagrass meadows may play a substantial role in climate change mitigation as they are capable to sequester and store substantial amounts of anthropogenic carbon in plant biomass and, more importantly, in their underlying sediments. In this PhD thesis, the carbon-burial potential was assessed by quantifying the amount of organic carbon stored in different seagrass meadows, each dominated by one of the four major seagrass species in the Western Indian Ocean region.

  2. 2. Flocculation of Allochthonous Dissolved Organic Matter – a Significant Pathway of Sedimentation and Carbon Burial in Lakes

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Författare :Eddie von Wachenfeldt; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flocculation; dissolved organic carbon; allochthonous; carbon sequestration; carbon cycle; boreal lakes; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Inland waters receive substantial amounts of organic carbon from adjacent watersheds. Only about half of the carbon exported from inland waters reaches the oceans, while the remainder is lost en route. This thesis identifies flocculation as an important and significant fate of carbon in the boreal landscape. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Permafrost carbon in a changing Arctic On periglacial landscape dynamics, organic matter characteristics, and the stability of a globally significant carbon pool

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Författare :Niels Weiss; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Permafrost; Carbon; Climate; Arctic; Soil; Organic Matter; Cryosphere; Geomorphology; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Sammanfattning : Organic matter (OM) in arctic permafrost ground contains about twice as much carbon (C) as is currently present in the atmosphere. Climate change is particularly strong in the Arctic, and could cause a considerable part of the OM in permafrost to thaw out, decompose, and be released as greenhouse gases; further enhancing global warming.

  4. 4. An evaluation of solar powered irrigation as carbon offset projects

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Alexander Olsson; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; carbon offset; carbon sequestration; clean development mechanism; climate change adaptation; desertification; solar power water pumping; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Carbon offsets have been developed as one tool to incentivise investments by developed nations in climate change mitigation activities in developing countries. The carbon offsets can be used towards the countries’ own mitigation targets but are also meant to benefit developing countries by providing a pathway to clean development. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Carbon stocks and fluxes in a young Siberian larch (Larix sibirica) plantation in Iceland

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Brynhildur Bjarnadottir; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interannual variability; carbon balance; Larix sibirica; afforestation; stock-change method; carbon sequestration; eddy covariance; biomass functions;

    Sammanfattning : The understanding of how forests function with respect to carbon (C) balance and its interaction with the climate system is a fundamental question in climate change research. Another important question is how large the sink for CO2 is in northern forests and how it varies with forest type, management, stand age and with external factors, such as climate variability.
