  1. 1. Drivers of carbon sink function in tropical seagrass beds : influence of carbon import, plant composition, seascape configuration and human activities

    Author : Rashid O. Ismail; Mats Björk; Martin Gullström; Maria E. Asplund; Amelia S. Buriyo; Matern S.P. Mtolera; Teresa Alcoverro; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Carbon sequestration; tropical seagrass meadows; coastal seascape; landscape configuration and transformation; calcification; allochthonous carbon; community respiration; carbon sink; human disturbance; coastal conservation; Plant Physiology; växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : Seagrass meadows are effective carbon sinks, sequestering atmospheric CO2 and capturing allochthonous organic material, storing organic carbon (Corg) in their sediments, so called Blue Carbon. In tropical areas, seagrass meadows have a high number of calcareous organisms, which can offset carbon sequestration by releasing CO2 through their calcification. READ MORE

  2. 2. An evaluation of solar powered irrigation as carbon offset projects

    Author : Alexander Olsson; Jinyue Yan; Björn Frostell; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; carbon offset; carbon sequestration; clean development mechanism; climate change adaptation; desertification; solar power water pumping; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Carbon offsets have been developed as one tool to incentivise investments by developed nations in climate change mitigation activities in developing countries. The carbon offsets can be used towards the countries’ own mitigation targets but are also meant to benefit developing countries by providing a pathway to clean development. READ MORE

  3. 3. High-resolution mapping and spatial variability of soil organic carbon storage in permafrost environments

    Author : Matthias Benjamin Siewert; Gustaf Hugelius; Peter Kuhry; Iain Hartley; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon; soil organic carbon; permafrost; soil; land cover classification; digital soil mapping; machine-learning; ecosystem; mapping; landscape studies; Siberia; Arctic; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Large amounts of carbon are stored in soils of the northern circumpolar permafrost region. High-resolution mapping of this soil organic carbon (SOC) is important to better understand and predict local to global scale carbon dynamics. READ MORE

  4. 4. A green future with thawing permafrost mires? : a study of climate-vegetation interactions in European subarctic peatlands

    Author : Julia Bosiö; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fennoscandia; carbon; greenhouse gas; photosynthesis; PAR; snow; climate change; permafrost; peatland; subarctic;

    Abstract : Climate projections indicate that Arctic and sub-Arctic regions are facing a significant change in climate during the 21st century. With warmer temperatures precipitation is also expected to increase, and in particular winter precipitation. READ MORE

  5. 5. National Energy System Modelling of Industry : Optimising the Transition Towards Carbon Neutrality

    Author : Erik Sandberg; Anna Krook-Riekkola; Andrea Toffolo; Åsa Lindman; Peter Lund; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : Industry is a major user of energy and emitter of fossil CO2. At the same time, Sweden targets net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. Current policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change, and the transition of the energy system it requires, will present major challenges for industry. READ MORE
