  1. 11. Greenhouse gas emission from tropical reservoirs Spatial and temporal dynamics

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Annika Linkhorst; Sebastian Sobek; Frédéric Guérin; [2019]

    Sammanfattning : The emission of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from reservoirs has been estimated to make up for about 1.3% of the global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emission. The impoundment of a river leads to the accumulation of sediment that is brought in from inflowing rivers, and the sediment organic matter is degraded to CH4 and CO2. LÄS MER

  2. 12. Constructing Safety: Influence of Safety Climate and Psychological Climate on Safety Behaviour in Construction Industry

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Susanna Larsson; [2005]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; safety performance; safety climate; organisational climate; construction industry; safety behaviour; occuopational safety; accident prevention; psychological climate;

    Sammanfattning : Although, significant progress has been made in improving occupational safety in construction industry the number of deaths and injuries are still unacceptably high. In the recent years, extensive research on safety climate, part of the organisational climate research body, has been perfromed. LÄS MER

  3. 13. Comparing Climate Forcers on a Common Scale

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Erik Sterner; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial-temporal Optimization; Carbon Cycle; Greenhouse Gases; Short-lived Climate Forcers; Upwelling-Diffusion; Metric; Energy Balance; Sea Level Rise; Non-cooperative Nash Equilibrium; Resource Extraction;

    Sammanfattning : The climate is changing at a rapid pace. Through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the world has agreed to hold the on-going temperature increase below 2 °C. Climate change is caused by emissions of different atmospheric species (climate forcers). LÄS MER

  4. 14. Acclimation of boreal Norway spruce to climate change: Empirical and modelling approaches

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborgs universitet

    Författare :Shubhangi Lamba; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Norway spruce; Climate change; Acclimation; MAESTRA; Whole Tree Chamber;

    Sammanfattning : The findings of this thesis have important implications for the projections of future carbon and water fluxes for the boreal region. The observed boreal longterm acclimation responses of respiration and stomatal regulation differ from those of most temperate regions. LÄS MER

  5. 15. National Appropriateness of International Climate Policy Frameworks in India, Brazil, and South Africa

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Prabhat Upadhyaya; Björn-Ola Linnér; Mathias Fridahl; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Policy process; Institutions; Domestic Politics; Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions; National; Climate Policy; India; Brazil; South Africa; Institutional Capacity; Norms; Nationally Determined Contributions; Policyprocess; Institutioner; Nationellt Lämpliga Utsläppsminskande Åtgärder; Nationell; Klimatpolicy; Indien; Brasilien; Sydafrika; Institutionell kapacitet; Nationellt Fastställda Bidrag.;

    Sammanfattning : How does the international climate policy frameworks influence the domestic institutional responses to climate mitigation in emerging economies? And how, in turn, do domestic institutions and politics in emerging economies influence the fate of international climate policy frameworks? The thesis provides answers to these questions by studying domestic engagements with Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions in three emerging economies – India, Brazil, and South Africa. The thesis specifically studies how these engagements were influenced by the domestic institutional context provided by national climate policy, norms, and institutional capacity in the three countries.
