  1. 1. Addressing water scarcity in the Bolivian Altiplano for sustainable water management

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Claudia Canedo Rosso; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-05-16]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Climatology; climate modes; Drought; Water balance; ENSO; Soil moisture; crop yield; Remote sensing; Bolivian highlands; arid and semiarid regions; Climate anomaly;

    Abstract : Water scarcity is a consequence of complex interactions between water access and water use. In fact, the time period over which precipitation deficit accumulates is a determing factor for the occurrence of drought. Drought induces crop production losses and far-reaching societal effects. In the South American Altiplano, drought is a major hazard. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the intra-seasonal to decadal climate variability over South-Asia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Faisal Saeed Syed; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; South Asia; monsoon; western disturbances; fog; climate variability; climate dynamics; teleconnections; ENSO; NAO; CGT; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : South Asia, a land of contrasting landscapes, seasons and climates, is highly vulnerable to climate variability over intra-seasonal to decadal time scales. In winter, precipitation over the western parts of south Asia and fog over the Indo-Gangetic (IG) plains are the two major climatic features. READ MORE

  3. 3. Atmospheric circulation regimes and climate change

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Author : Jenny Brandefelt; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atmospheric large-scale circulation; greenhouse gas forcing; climate sensitivity; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi;

    Abstract : The Earth's atmosphere is expected to warm in response to increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG). The response of the Earth's complex and chaotic climate system to the GHG emissions is, however, difficult to assess. In this thesis, two issues of importance for the assessment of this response are studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Smart Cities and Climate Targets Reducing cities' energy use with ICT and travel information

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anna Kramers; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : This thesis examines use of ICT in helping to reduce energy use in cities, thereby contributing to sustainable development and achievement of cities’ climate targets. It explores how targets can be developed in a consistent and transparent way, how to identify the main ICT ‘hotspots’ as regards reducing citizens’ energy use and how they can be included in city planning.

  5. 5. Multiple stressors in rotifer communities: : Effects of predation, climate change, and brownification

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Huan Zhang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-10]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; community dynamic; brownification; heat wave; inducible defense; rotifer; plasticity; multiple stressors; Predation; prey;

    Abstract : Most organisms on Earth live in an environment where they are exposed to multiple pressures, including predation and climate change. In many aquatic ecosystems, organisms have to handle additional challenges such as brownification, co-occurring with climate warming. READ MORE
