    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Lovisa Svensson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Pollen data; compositional data; Dirichlet distribution; spatio-temporal reconstruction; Kronecker product; Gaussian Markov random field GMRF ; Markov Chain Monte Carlo MCMC ; Metropolis Hastings MH ; Metropolis adjusted Langevin algorithm MALA ; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : Given a pollen data set from Europe over a time period, the aim is to reconstruct the past land cover by interpolating from the pollen data values to a continuous map. The data is on compositional form with three vegetation categories; coniferous forest, broadleaved forest and open land. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hållbar boskapsproduktion : växthusgaser från nötkreatur och möjliga strategier för minskade utsläpp

    Nyckelord :koldioxid; lustgas; metan; silvopastoral; ekologisk;

    Sammanfattning : Hållning av nötboskap genererar utsläpp av de tre växthusgaserna koldioxid, lustgas och metan. Alla tre har stor betydelse för klimatet på jorden då de bidrar till den pågående globala uppvärmningen. Utsläpp från dessa växthusgaser kan delas in de som kommer direkt ur korna samt indirekta utsläpp som genereras vid skötseln av dem. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The UNFCCC initiated mechanism Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) is an important policy instrument for combating climate change, using payments to create economic incentives for developing countries to preserve their forests. However, there is a need for closer scrutiny of whether the mechanism is able to generate its intended outputs and outcomes. LÄS MER
