  1. 1. Perspectives on low carbon lifestyles

    Författare :David Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; GHG emissions; climate change; satisfaction with travel scale; sustainable consumption; materialistic values; air travel; rebound effect.; congestion charge; households; subjective well-being;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is one of the most severe problems facing the world today. If extensive measures are not undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within the near future, the natural conditions under which life depends will change for the worse (Pachauri et al, 2014).

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is about whether it is a good idea to place monetary value on nature, to remedy the fact that we treat it as having no particular value to us humans, although it clearly has. The thesis is based on five research papers that can be said to position themselves on opposite sides in the debate on monetisation of nature. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Low Temperature Austenite Decomposition in Carbon Steels

    Författare :Albin Stormvinter; Annika Borgenstam; John Ågren; Peter Hedström; John G. Speer; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Carbon steels; Electron backscattered diffraction; Martensite; Microscopy; Microstructure; Thermodynamic modeling;

    Sammanfattning : Martensitic steels have become very important engineering materials in modern society. Crucial parts of everyday products are made of martensitic steels, from surgical needles and razor blades to car components and large-scale excavators. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Carbon Nanotube Polymer Composites: Mechanical, Electrical and Photorefractive Properties

    Författare :Liliana Licea Jimenez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :carbon nanotubes; electrical properties; photorefractive properties.; polymer matrix nanocomposites; mechanical properties;

    Sammanfattning : Incorporation of carbon nanotubes (CNT) into polymers is attractive due to the generally good processability of polymers and unprecedented properties of nanotubes. In this work, preparation and matrix known earlier but not employed so-far for nanocomposites are studied towards enhanced mechanical and electrical performances. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Making Blue Carbon : Coastal Ecosystems at the Science-Policy Interface

    Författare :Terese Thoni; BECC - Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; UNFCCC; science-policy interface; Blue Carbon; coastal ecosystems; klimatförändringarna; kustnära ekosystem; blått kol; relationen mellan vetenskap och politik; UNFCCC;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is a growing threat to mankind. The message from the scientific community is clear: we need to act fast and profoundly. The political response has, however, been slow. The likelihood that we will be able to meet our political climate goals only by reducing emissions is slim. LÄS MER
