  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; marklära; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; geomorphology; runoff map; projection of future runoff; Environmental studies; Miljöstudier; Physical geography; hydrological modelling; trends; climate change; climate variability; Iceland; water resources; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik; kartografi; klimatologi; Civil engineering; hydraulic engineering;

    Abstract : Hydropower is the main source of electricity production in Iceland. In 2005, 80.8% of all electricity was generated by hydropower (7015 GWh). Hydropower production is affected both by variations and changes in discharge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluating energy efficient buildings : Energy- and moisture performance considering future climate change

    University dissertation from Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Author : Björn Berggren; [2019-05-21]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Net Zero Energy Building; passive house; thermal bridge; building envelope; energy performance; moisture performance; multi criteria decision making; climate change; climate scenarios; EN ISO 13789; EN ISO 10211;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges the world is facing is climate change. The need of reduction of energy use and an increased use of renewable energy in buildings constitutes important climate change mitigation measures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling regional climate-vegetation interactions in Europe A palaeo perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Gustav Strandberg; Erik Kjellström; Qiong Zhang; Johan Nilsson; Hans Renssen; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Palaeoclimate; climate model; vegetation; vegetation changes; land-cover; changes; proxy data; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : Studies in paleoclimate are important because they give us knowledge about how the climate system works and puts the current climate change in necessary perspective. By studying (pre)historic periods we increase our knowledge not just about these periods, but also about the processes that are important for climatic variations and changes. READ MORE
