  1. 1. A Changing Arctic Climate Science and Policy in the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Annika E. Nilsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Arctic; climate; framing; knowledge production; regime; institution; actor network; co-production; indigenous knowledge; Arktis; klimat; kunskapsproduktion; regim; institution; aktörsnätverk; traditionell kunskap; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Climate change has often been framed as a global issue but slow progress in the global climate negotiations and an increasing need to plan for local adaptation have made it increasingly salient to also discuss the potential of other arenas for climate policy and knowledge production. This dissertation analyzes the interplay between science and policy at the international regional level based on a study of an assessment of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic. READ MORE

  2. 2. Arctic Climate and Water Change Information Relevance for Assessment and Adaptation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Arvid Bring; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Monitoring; Arctic; Climate Change; Adaptatation; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The Arctic is subject to growing economic and political interest. Meanwhile, its water and climate systems are in rapid transformation. Relevant and accessible information about water and climate is therefore vital to detect, understand and adapt to the changes. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Arctic Seasonal Cycle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Jonas Mortin; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic climate; Seasonal melt-freeze transitions; Arctic sea ice and snow; Active microwave measurements; Climate model evaluation; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The seasonal cycle of snow and sea ice is a fundamental feature of the Arctic climate system. In the Northern Hemisphere, about 55 million km2 of sea ice and snow undergo complete melt and freeze processes every year. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling the early to mid-Holocene Arctic climate

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Marit Berger; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arctic; early Holocene; mid-Holocene; climate modelling; paleoclimate; sea ice; climate change;

    Abstract : In the recent past it has become evident that the Earth's climate is changing, and that human activity play a significant role in these changes. One of the regions where the ongoing climate change has been most evident is in the Arctic: the surface temperature has increased twice as much in this region as compared to the global average, in addition, a significant decline in the Arctic sea-ice extent has been observed in the past decades.

  5. 5. On the Arctic Boundary Layer From Turbulence to Climate

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Author : Thorsten Mauritsen; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric boundary layers; Turbulence; Stable stratification; Gravity waves; Mesoscale motion; Arctic climate; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi; atmosfärvetenskap; Atmospheric Sciences;

    Abstract : The boundary layer is the part of the atmosphere that is in direct contact with the ground via turbulent motion. At mid-latitudes the boundary layer is usually one or a few kilometers deep, while in the Arctic it is much more shallow, typically a few hundred meters or less. READ MORE
