  1. 6. European Energy Policy in Transition: Critical Aspects of Emissions Trading

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Markus Wråke; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Energy policy; climate policy; carbon dioxide; climate change; emissions trading; EU ETS; efficiency; distributional effects; closures; new entrants; electricity; allocation; auctions; carbon leakage; competitiveness; peat; radiative forcing;

    Abstract : The overarching theme of the thesis is European energy and climate policy, with a particular focus on the role of emissions trading. The thesis consists of eight papers. Paper 1 outlines the origins and characteristics of the European Union’s Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), launched in January 2005. READ MORE

  2. 7. Fabrication and Characterization of Composite TiO2/Carbon Nanofilms with Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Raja Sellappan; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TiO2; carbon; photoluminescence; photodegradation; recombination.; Photocatalysis;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis is dedicated to fabrication and characterization of an efficient thin film photocatalyst for environmental cleaning and solar fuel applications. Because of its simplicity and reproducible fabrication, the chosen combination of nanometer thin titania and carbon films serves also as a model system for a wider class of photoactive materials.

  3. 8. Ectomycorrhizal fungi: Their role in nitrogen retention and carbon sequestration in northern coniferous forests

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Adam Bahr; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Carbon sequestration; Nitrogen deposition; Nitrogen leakage; Field survey; Boreo-nemoral forest; Boreal Forest; Ergosterol; Free ergosterol; Mesh-bags; Multivariate analysis;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vanliga skogssvampar är viktiga för kretsloppen av kol och kväve Ektomykorrhiza I alla skogar växande i ett klimat liknande Sveriges, lever nästan samtliga trädarter i ett nära samspel (symbios) med svampar. Till skillnad från nedbrytarsvampar (som kan leva enbart på dött organiskt material) är flera av de kända skogsvamparna såsom kantareller, soppar, flugsvampar, kremlor och riskor beroende av denna symbios med träd för att överleva.

  4. 9. Ecosystems in the Anthropocene: the role of cropland management for carbon and nitrogen cycle processes

    University dissertation from Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Olin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon; Nitrogen; DVM; Ecosystem modelling; Cropland; Management; Yields;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Människan har märkbart ändrat Jordens ekosystem och dess funktioner. Genom avskogning och konvertering av naturliga ekosystem till åkrar och betesmarker så har människor skapat helt nya typer av ekosystem. READ MORE

  5. 10. To leak or not to leak? Land‐Use Displacement and Carbon Leakage from Forest Conservation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Sabine Henders; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; land‐use change and deforestation; accounting methods; consumer and producer responsibility; REDD ; Klimatförändring; markanvändning och avskogning; redovisningsmetoder; konsument‐ och producentansvaret; REDD ;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the question how emissions from land‐use displacement can be assessed and accounted for, using the example of carbon‐leakage accounting in the planned UNFCCC mechanism on ‘Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation’ (REDD). REDD serves here as example of an international forest conservation policy that might be effective locally but could lead to displacement of deforestation to other countries. READ MORE
