  1. 1. Arctic Climate and Water Change : Information Relevance for Assessment and Adaptation

    Author : Arvid Bring; Georgia Destouni; Richard Lammers; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Monitoring; Arctic; Climate Change; Adaptatation; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The Arctic is subject to growing economic and political interest. Meanwhile, its water and climate systems are in rapid transformation. Relevant and accessible information about water and climate is therefore vital to detect, understand and adapt to the changes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atmospheric & Oceanic Applications of Eulerian and Lagrangian Transport Modelling

    Author : Joakim Kjellsson; Kristofer Döös; Jonas Nycander; Joseph LaCasce; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eulerian; Lagrangian; trajectory; climate; atmosphere; ocean; modelling; drifter; thermodynamic; climate change; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This thesis presents several ways to understand transports of air and water masses in the atmosphere and ocean, and the transports of energy that they imply. It presents work using various kinds of observations as well as computer simulations of the atmosphere and oceans. READ MORE

  3. 3. Understanding the Impacts of Weather and Climate Change on Travel Behaviour

    Author : Liu Chengxi; Yusak O. Susilo; Karlström Anders; Kelly J. Clifton; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; impacts of weather; climate change; travel survey; spatial heterogeneity; activity-travel pattern; weather perception; passenger transport CO2 emission; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Human behaviour produces massive greenhouse gas emissions, which trigger climate change and more unpredictable weather conditions. The fluctuation of daily weather corresponds to variations of everyday travel behaviour. This influence, although is less noticeable, can have a strong impact on the transport system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Model analysis of ocean carbon storage and transport across climate states

    Author : Malin Ödalen; Jonas Nycander; Johan Nilsson; Kevin I. C. Oliver; Nathaelle Bouttes-Mauhourat; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oceanography; Climate; Climate model; Carbon cycle; Paleoclimate; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : The ocean carbon cycle plays a fundamental role in the Earth’s climate system, on decadal to multi-millennial timescales. Of the carbon held in the ocean, the atmosphere, and the terrestrial biosphere combined, more than 90% resides in the ocean. Carbon enters the surface ocean through air-sea gas exchange and from terrestrial sources. READ MORE

  5. 5. Confronting new challenges in chemical assessment : emerging contaminants and climate change

    Author : Deguo Kong; Ian Cousins; Matthew MacLeod; Mick Whelan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; emerging chemicals; climate change; fate; multimedia model; risk assessment; physical-chemical property; uncertainty; Arctic; Baltic; time series; persistent organic pollutants; temporal trend; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Both chemical-specific (e.g. physical-chemical properties) and environmental (e.g. READ MORE
