  1. 1. Lokala fördelar av minskade klimatutsläpp?

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Författare :Jennifer Carlestam; [2020]
    Nyckelord :sidonyttor; synergier; positiva sidoeffekter; co-benefits; lokalt klimatarbete; klimatåtgärder; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : A growing research field shows that climate mitigation measures can entail numerous co-benefits for other policy areas, including improved air quality, enhanced energy security and reduced maintenance costs. One possible strategy for enhancing climate action can be to emphasize these co-benefits. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hur länder i Europa arbetar för att utveckla en systemarkitektur för e-mobilitet. En jämförande studie mellan Sverige, Frankrike samt Norge.

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

    Författare :Emelie Renman Åqvist; [2020]
    Nyckelord :elbil; växthusgaser; transportsektorn; electric car Sweden; electric car market; electric vehicle market; car fleet; public investigations; emission; environmental targets; greenhouse gases; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : På grund av klimatförändringar behöver världens länder sluta att tillföra växthusgaser till atmosfären och därmed sluta bränna fossila bränslen. En sektor i samhället som är extremt beroende av just fossila bränslen är transportsektorn, där en lösning för att minska detta beroende kan vara elfordon. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Assessing annual forest phenology: a comparison of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and phenocamera datasets

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Shangharsha Thapa; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; Near-surface Remote Sensing; UAV; Phenocamera; Forest Phenology; Phenophase; Seasonality; NDVI; GCC; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Near-surface remote sensing platforms such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and phenocameras appear to be potential platforms for keeping track of seasonal dynamics at a local scale. This research focusses on extracting time series of different vegetation indices (VIs) from both platforms, computing seasonality events from them and comparing the results against spectral sensor data.

  5. 5. Propelling the Commercialization of ‘Novel Cements’: An investigation of demand-side factors to accelerate decarbonizing technologies within the cement industry

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Författare :Elizabeth McNamee; [2020]
    Nyckelord :cement; concrete; decarbonizing technologies; novel alternative green cements concretes; demand-side; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Accounting for approximately 8% of global CO2 emissions, the cement industry is one of the greatest contributors to climate change, despite the lack of focus on this sector in popular discourse. Deep cuts in this sector are challenging to achieve due to necessitated alteration of material components and formulation of the traditional product in addressing non-energy related ‘process emissions’.
