  1. 1. Uncertainties in tropical precipitation and radiative feedbacks under climate change

    Author : Alejandro Uribe Cortes; Thorsten Mauritsen; Frida Bender; Caroline Muller; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; radiative feedback; tropical precipitation; tropical extreme precipitation; climate modeling; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : Clouds have a significant impact on climate. They contribute to controlling the planetary energy balance, and the precipitation distribution. Global Climate Models (GCMs) designed to reproduce the state of the climate system, however, have difficulties representing clouds. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tropical cyclone induced extreme wind, rainfall, and floods in the Mekong River Basin

    Author : Aifang Chen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Mekong River Basin; Climate extremes; Tropical cyclones; Precipitation; Floods; Satellite data; Reanalysis data;

    Abstract : Increasing magnitude and frequency of climate extremes under global warming are threatening the socioeconomic development in many parts of the world. The Mekong River Basin (MRB) is a good example for how climate extremes can affect society, as the transboundary MRB has experienced hydroclimate changes and fast socioeconomic development during the past decades.

  3. 3. Inter-annual variability of rainfall in Central America : Connection with global and regional climate modulators

    Author : Tito Maldonado; Björn Claremar; Eric J. Alfaro; Jorge A. Amador; Michael Taylor; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Precipitation; climate variability; El Niño Southern Oscillation; Tropical North Atlantic; Canonical Correlation Analysis; EC-EARTH; Caribbean Low-Level Jet;

    Abstract : Central America is a region regularly affected by natural disasters, with most of them having a hydro-meteorological origin. Therefore, the understanding of annual changes of precipitation upon the region is relevant for planning and mitigation of natural disasters. READ MORE

  4. 4. Persistent organic pollutants in the atmosphere - spatial and temporal variations

    Author : Cecilia Backe; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tropical and temperate regions; global transport; temperature; latitudinal fractionation; fugacity; soil organic matter; soil-air exchange; washout ratio; rain; precipitation; atmosphere; spatial and temporal variations; DDT; PCB; persistent organic pollutants; polychlorinated biphenyls; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Ecology; Ekologi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : In these thesis I have studied the spatial and temporal variations of PCBs in the atmosphere and in precipitation in southern Sweden. Further, soil-air exchange processes of PCBs were investigated. Finally, the long-range transport of PCBs and DDT was studied in the Baltic Sea region and in a tropical vs. a temporal region.

  5. 5. Analysis and speciation of organic phosphorus in environmental matrices : Development of methods to improve 31P NMR analysis

    Author : Johan Vestergren; Gröbner Gerhard; Jurgen Schleucher; Ulrik Ilstedt; Per Persson; Reiner Giesler; Benjamin L. Turner; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Phosphorus; soil; 31P NMR; NaOH EDTA; terrestrial; sulfide; speciation; bioavailability; paramagnetic; humus; boreal; tropical; multi-dimensional; agroforestry; chronosequence; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Phosphorus (P) is an essential element for life on our planet. It is central in numerous biochemical processes in terrestrial and aqueous ecosystems including food production; and it is the primary growth-limiting nutrient in some of the world’s biomes. READ MORE
