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

    Author : Brynhildur Bjarnadottir; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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.

  2. 2. The Role of the Forest in Climate Policy

    Author : Mathilda Eriksson; Runar Brännlund; Tommy Lundgren; Brent Sohngen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; climate change; integrated assessment; forest carbon sequestration; forest bioenergy; avoided deforestation; afforestation; uncertainty; dynamic modeling; DICE; RICE; nationalekonomi; Economics;

    Abstract : AbstractIn Paper [I], I develop the FOR-DICE model to analyze optimal global forest carbon management. The FOR-DICE is a simple framework for assessing the role of the boreal, tropical, and temperate forests as both a source of renewable energy and a resource to sequester and store carbon. READ MORE

  3. 3. Changing land cover as a driver of surface water browning

    Author : Martin Skerlep; Enhet akvatisk ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organic matter; iron; land cover; browning; afforestation; biogeochemistry; spruce;

    Abstract : Streams, rivers and lakes across wide areas of the Northern hemisphere have been subject to an increase in water color over the last decades. This increase, also known as browning, is a result of rising dissolved organic matter (DOM) and iron (Fe) concentrations in the water. READ MORE

  4. 4. Land Use in Climate Policy - Forest Based Options at Local Level with Cases from India

    Author : Matilda Palm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Carbon sequestration; sustainable development; bioenergy; afforestation; CDM; rural development; rural development;

    Abstract : With India’s large population, an increased pressure on forest and agricultural land indicate a growing demand for environmental services that is sustainable for the future. Fertile agricultural land is limited and with an increased demand for energy production the development expands to degraded lands, the wasteland. READ MORE
