  1. 1. Climate vulnerability assessment methodology : Agriculture under climate change in the Nordic region

    Author : Lotten Wiréhn; Tina-Simone Schmid Neset; Björn-Ola Linnér; Giuseppe Feola; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Agriculture; Assessment methodology; Climate change; Geographic Visualization; Indicator-based methods; Vulnerability; Bedömningsmetodologi; Geografisk Visualisering; Indikatorbaserade metoder; Jordbruk; Klimatförändringar; Sårbarhet;

    Abstract : Food security and climate change mitigation are crucial missions for the agricultural sector and for global work on sustainable development. Concurrently, agricultural production is directly dependent on climatic conditions, making climate change adaptation strategies essential for the agricultural sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atlantic Water in the Nordic Seas : A satellite altimetry perspective on ocean circulation

    Author : Sara Broomé; Johan Nilsson; Jonas Nycander; Léon Chafik; Michael A. Spall; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic Ocean climate; ocean heat transport; sea surface height; topographic control; Lagrangian trajectories; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The Atlantic Water in the Nordic Seas contributes to the mild climate of Northern Europe and is the main oceanic source of heat for the Arctic. The northward bound transport of the warm and saline Atlantic Water is mediated by a topographically constrained cyclonic boundary current along the Norwegian continental slope. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deglacial impact of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet on the North Atlantic climate system

    Author : Francesco Muschitiello; Barbara Wohlfarth; Raimund Muscheler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; climate; North Atlantic; last deglaciation; isotope geochemistry; chronology; climate modeling; Marine Geology; maringeologi;

    Abstract : The long warming transition from the Last Ice Age into the present Interglacial period, the last deglaciation, holds the key to our understanding of future abrupt climate change. In the last decades, a great effort has been put into deciphering the linkage between freshwater fluxes from melting ice sheets and rapid shifts in global ocean-atmospheric circulation that characterized this puzzling climate period.

  4. 4. Common Energy and Climate Strategies for the Nordic Countries - A Model Analysis

    Author : Thomas Unger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : MARKAL; tradable green certificates; electricity trade; Nordic countries; climate policy; energy systems modeling;

    Abstract : Increased competition and market integration into a wider geographical context are currently on the energy- and climate-policy agenda in Northern Europe. It is likely that several energy-and environment-related markets will coexist within a near future, for example markets for electricity and emission permits for CO2. READ MORE

  5. 5. Carbon exchange in boreal ecosystems: upscaling and the impacts of natural disturbances

    Author : Julia Kelly; BECC: Biodiversity and Ecosystem services in a Changing Climate; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon fluxes; CH4; Climate change; CO2; Drought; Ecosystem respiration; Forest; Peatland; Remote sensing; Temperature; Thermal camera; UAV; Wildfire;

    Abstract : Boreal forests and peatlands are globally significant carbon stores but they are threatened by rising air temperatures and changes in precipitation regimes and the frequency of natural disturbances. Predicting how the boreal biome will respond to climate change depends on being able to accurately model and upscale the greenhouse gas fluxes between these ecosystems and the atmosphere. READ MORE
