These tests apply a standard econometric method, ordinary least squares, to predict consumption levels using household characteristics as input variables. LÄS MER
2. Aerosol Input and Snow Accumulation Rates on the Northern Greenland Ice Sheet : Reconstructed by means of Continuous Flow Analysis (CFA) of 6 shallow firn coresMaster-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : Ice, firn and snow cores from the Greenland ice sheet offer a unique opportunity to reconstruct past climate conditions. These can be analyzed with continuous flow analysis (CFA) in order to acquire proxy information about ancient atmospheric aerosol concentrations, snow accumulation rates or temperature variations, atmospheric composition, solar activity as well as volcanism and biological activity.
