  1. 1. Understanding the Impacts of Weather and Climate Change on Travel Behaviour

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Liu Chengxi; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; impacts of weather; climate change; travel survey; spatial heterogeneity; activity-travel pattern; weather perception; passenger transport CO2 emission; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Human behaviour produces massive greenhouse gas emissions, which trigger climate change and more unpredictable weather conditions. The fluctuation of daily weather corresponds to variations of everyday travel behaviour. This influence, although is less noticeable, can have a strong impact on the transport system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Statistical Downscaling of Precipitation from Large-scale Atmospheric Circulation Comparison of Methods and Climate Regions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Fredrik Wetterhall; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Statistical; Downscaling; Precipitation; Large-scale circulation; PCA; TWS; Weather pattern; Regression; Weather generator; Hydrologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : A global climate change may have large impacts on water resources on regional and global scales. General circulation models (GCMs) are the most used tools to evaluate climate-change scenarios on a global scale. They are, however, insufficiently describing the effects at the local scale.

  3. 3. Stopover Ecology of Mallards Where, when and how to do what?

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Daniel Bengtsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Age characters; body condition; departure decision; effects of influenza A virus; habitat selection; mallard; movement; Ottenby Bird Observatory; stopover ecology; weather; wild birds; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : The mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) is the most numerous and widespread duck in the northern hemisphere and a model species in ecology and harvest management. Migration is a crucial life stage for many birds and understanding the drivers of migration has important implications for conservation biology and assessment of animal population responses to global changes.

  4. 4. Modelling of the daytime and night-time urban thermal environment

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Shiho Onomura; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; urban thermal environment; microclimate modelling; air temperature; mean radiant temperature; nocturnal cooling rates; synoptic weather types;

    Abstract : The world’s urban population is expected to increase over the coming decades. To maintain and improve the health and well-being of urban citizens, it is important to increase our knowledge and develop methods for evaluating the urban thermal environment to support urban planning.

  5. 5. Spatiotemporal climate and atmospheric circulation variability in Asia inferred from tree rings

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Andrea Seim; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Asia; atmospheric circulation; Central Asia; dendroclimatology; growth-climate relationship; objectively classified weather types; teleconnections; tree-ring networks;

    Abstract : Observed 20th century warming trends accompanied by more frequent weather extremes such as droughts or intense rainfall events have consequences for societies and environments alike. In Asia, where the majority of the population depend on agricultural productivity, recent climate change is likely to increase societal hardships. READ MORE
