  1. 1. Carbon stock and fluxes in Nyungwe forest and Ruhande Arboretum in Rwanda

    Author : Donat Nsabimana; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon stock; Litterfall production; Soil CO2 efflux; or soil respiration; Soil temperature; Soil water content; Spatial variation; Seasonal and diurnal variations;

    Abstract : Conservation and sequestration of carbon in forest ecosystems are potential strategies to reduce or stabilize the atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and mitigate climate change. Estimating the... READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon stocks and fluxes in a young Siberian larch (Larix sibirica) plantation in Iceland

    Author : Brynhildur Bjarnadottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interannual variability; carbon balance; Larix sibirica; afforestation; stock-change method; carbon sequestration; eddy covariance; biomass functions;

    Abstract : The understanding of how forests function with respect to carbon (C) balance and its interaction with the climate system is a fundamental question in climate change research. Another important question is how large the sink for CO2 is in northern forests and how it varies with forest type, management, stand age and with external factors, such as climate variability.

  3. 3. Bottom-Up Modeling of Building Stock Dynamics - Investigating the Effect of Policy and Decisions on the Distribution of Energy and Climate Impacts in Building Stocks over Time

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Claudio Nägeli; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building stock modeling; building stock dynamics; energy efficiency; synthetic building stock; agent-based modeling; GHG emissions; renewable energy;

    Abstract : In Europe, residential and commercial buildings are directly and indirectly responsible for approximately 30–40% of the overall energy demand and emitted greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A large share of these buildings was erected before minimum energy-efficiency standards were implemented and are therefore not energy- or carbon-efficient. READ MORE

  4. 4. Carbon Balance Implications of Forest Biomass Production Potential

    University dissertation from Östersund : Mid Sweden University

    Author : Bishnu Chandra Poudel; Mittuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik; forest management; silviculture; clear-cut forestry; continuous-cover forestry; substitution; total carbon; climate benefit; climate change;

    Abstract : Forests in boreal and temperate forest-ecosystems have importance for carbonbalance since they sequester large amount of atmospheric carbon by uptake ofcarbon-dioxide during photosynthesis, and transfer and store carbon in the forestecosystem. Forest material can be used for bio-fuel purposes and substitute fossilfuels, and supply wood products, which can replace carbon-and-energy-intensivematerials. READ MORE
