  1. 1. Reconstruction of Past European Land Cover Based on Fossil Pollen Data : Gaussian Markov Random Field Models for Compositional Data

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Centre for Environmental and Climate Research

    Author : Behnaz Pirzamanbein; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-11]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spatial Statistics; Adaptive Markov Chain Monte Carlo; Dirichlet Observation; Confidence Region; Palaeoecology; Past Human Land Use; Stochastic Partial Differential Equation;

    Abstract : Spatial distribution of land cover plays an important role in climate system andglobal carbon cycle. Research shows that changes in land cover are associated with large climatic effects. These changes are either due to climate change or human activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. From Sea to Society - Climate Change, Microbial Community Interactions and Assessing Climate Risk on Society

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Gurpreet Kaur-Kahlon; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Phytoplankton; Bacteria; Climate change; Quorum sensing; Microbial blooms; Vulnerability factors; Arabian Sea; Southwest India;

    Abstract : Unicellular organisms, microalgae and bacteria, less than one millimeter in size make the world go round. Phytoplankton and cyanobacteria, for example, plays an inevitable role contributing 50-85% to the world’s oxygen via photosynthesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Climate Change, Dengue and Aedes Mosquitoes Past Trends and Future Scenarios

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jing Liu-Helmersson; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dengue; mathematical modelling; vectorial capacity; DTR; Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; climate change; Europe; vector invasion; abundance; dengue; matematisk modellering; vektorkapacitet; DTR; Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; klimatförändring; Europa; vektor invasion; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Abstract : Background Climate change, global travel and trade have facilitated the spread of Aedes mosquitoes and have consequently enabled the diseases they transmit (dengue fever, Chikungunya, Zika and yellow fever) to emerge and re-emerge in uninfected areas. Large dengue outbreaks occurred in Athens in 1927 and in Portuguese island, Madeira in 2012, but there are almost no recent reports of Aedes aegypti, the principal vector, in Europe. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling climate change impacts on pesticide leaching

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Karin Anna Steffens; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Climate change projections for Sweden indicate increases in both temperature and precipitation. In a warmer and wetter climate, weed and pest pressures are likely to increase, which might in turn trigger an increased use of pesticides. READ MORE

  5. 5. Water resources in Iceland - Impacts of climate variability and climate change

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Jona Finndis Jonsdottir; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
