  1. 1. The Greenhouse - Icehouse Transition : a dinoflagellate perspective

    Author : Caroline A. van Mourik; Henk Brinkhuis; Malgorzata Moczydlowska-Vidal; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : Eocene - Oligocene; dinoflagellate cysts; biostratigraphy; paleoecology; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Through the analysis of the stratigraphic and spatial distribution of organic walled dinoflagellate cysts (dinocysts) from climatologically and oceanographically key sites, this project aims to contribute to a better understanding of the Eocene-Oligocene (E/O) environmental changes and their timing. A central issue is to identify the global environmental changes which are responsible for the Eocene cooling and its underlying mechanisms with the focus on the Oligocene isotope-1 (Oi-1) event, thought to mark the onset of major Antarctic glaciation.

  2. 2. Structural Violence as a Constraint to African Policy Formation in the 1990s : Respositioning Education in International Relations

    Abstract : This study is a meta-analysis of the manner in which global relations impact on national level policy spaces and policy formation. As the International Financial Institutions tighten their grip through the Structural Adjustment Programmes over African countries, and donors steadily shift their ground and push conditionality beyond economic policy into institutional arrangements, the issue of political sovereignty of African countries, and of indirect rule through aid becomes a key concern.

    Abstract : The African Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate variability at different time scales. It is an arid to semi-arid region with limited water resources. The summer rainfall is one of these sources, but it exhibits pronounced interannual variability. This thesis presents several aspects of Sahelian Sudan rainfall. READ MORE
