    Sammanfattning : Vehicle manufactures have adopted different strategies for improving the environmental performance of their fleet including lightweight design and alternative drivetrains such as EVs. Both strategies reduce energy during use but may result in a relative increase of the impact during other stages. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Satellie Monitoring of Urban Growth and Indicator-based Assessment of Environmental Impact

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

    Författare :Dorothy Furberg; KTH.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Urban growth; remote sensing; landcover classification; landscape metrics; environmental indicators; environmental impact; Greater Toronto Area; Stockholm; Shanghai;

    Sammanfattning : One of the major consequences of urbanization is the transformation of land surfaces from rural/natural environments to built-up land that supports diverse forms of human activity. These transformations impact the local geology, climate, hydrology, flora and fauna and human-life supporting ecosystem services in the region. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Foresight and Feedback: Monitoring and assessing the environmental implications of emerging technologies

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

    Sammanfattning : The magnitude of the change required to approach sustainability indicates an effort that will have to be sustained over decades, during which vast new technology systems will have to be developed and deployed. Yet technological development is a double edged sword, and these efforts will inevitably incur unintended consequences. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Urban environmental stewardship Roles and reasons for civic engagements in governance of social-ecological systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Författare :Johan Enqvist; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
