  1. 1. Seasonality and variability of stratospheric water vapour

    Author : Tongmei Wang; Abdel Hannachi; Qiong Zhang; Alexey Karpechko; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stratospheric water vapour; seasonality; variability; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : Stratospheric water vapour (SWV) plays a critical role in the climate system by modulating the radiation budget and influencing the stratospheric chemistry. Studying changes of SWV on global scale is helpful for our understanding of climate change. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon stocks and fluxes in a young Siberian larch (Larix sibirica) plantation in Iceland

    Author : Brynhildur Bjarnadottir; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interannual variability; carbon balance; Larix sibirica; afforestation; stock-change method; carbon sequestration; eddy covariance; biomass functions;

    Abstract : The understanding of how forests function with respect to carbon (C) balance and its interaction with the climate system is a fundamental question in climate change research. Another important question is how large the sink for CO2 is in northern forests and how it varies with forest type, management, stand age and with external factors, such as climate variability.

  3. 3. Variability and feedbacks in the middle atmosphere

    Author : Maartje Kuilman; Bodil Karlsson; Qiong Zhang; Hauke Schmidt; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Middle atmosphere dynamics; noctilucent clouds; solar cycle effects; climate feedbacks; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : The importance of the middle atmosphere for the weather and climate on Earth is increasingly realized. Variability and feedback processes in the middle atmosphere need to be better understood and form the subject of this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Uncertainties and variability in the global carbon cycle

    Author : Stephens Craig; Martin Heimann; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Meteorology; Meteorologi; meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are perturbing the radiation balance of the atmosphere that ultimately determines the climate for all life on Earth. The prediction of future climate change and the explanation of observed changes are contingent on us quantitatively understanding the link between CO2 emissions and atmospheric concentrations that is provided by the biogeochemical carbon cycle.

  5. 5. Air Pollution Dependency on Climate Variability and Source Region : Past, Current and Future Air Pollution Scenarios over Europe

    Author : Camilla Andersson; Hans-Christen Hansson; Christer Johansson; Joakim Langner; David Simpson; Peter Builtjes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Acidification; Air Pollution; Climate Change; Europe; Numerical Model; Emission; Eutrophication; Key region; Nitrogen Dioxide; Particulate Matter; PM; Source region; Surface Ozone; Tropospheric Ozone; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The main objectives of this thesis were to investigate the dependency of European air pollution on climate variability and emission source region. Calculations with a chemistry transport model (CTM) were conducted to investigate the influence of climate variability. READ MORE
