Sammanfattning : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. LÄS MER
2. Seeing and Knowing the Earth as a System : An Effective History of Global Environmental Change Research as Scientific and Political Practice
Sammanfattning : Previous research connecting scientific knowledge production with governing of the global environment usually start in international climate change negotiations and related assessments. From that vantage point Earth system science and models are studied as an expansion of Global Circulation Models. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Surface gravity waves alter the turbulence of the bottom atmosphere and the upper ocean. Accordingly, they can affect momentum flux, heat fluxes, gas exchange and atmospheric mixing. However, in most state-of-the-art Earth System Models (ESMs), surface wave influences are not fully considered or even included. LÄS MER
5. Geospatial Knowledge Discovery using Volunteered Geographic Information : a Complex System Perspective
