15 February 2019CEC is in an expansive phase and the number of doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and administrative staff increased during 2018.
1 February 2019Growing forests can limit climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon in their biomass as they grow. How much carbon a forest stores varies between tree species, the forests age, weather conditions and how the forest is managed.
11 January 2019Global environmental problems can be addressed by means of policy instruments such as carbon dioxide taxes, building and technology standards and support for new technology, but the issues are complex and several environmental challenges must be addressed simultaneously in order to achieve optimal effect. This is evident from the article Policy design for the Anthropocene published in the journal Nature Sustainability.
10 January 2019Simon Herzog has studied what factors determine the fate of iron from boreal rivers and is now defending his thesis Fate of riverine iron over estuarine salinity gradients.
5 December 2018Soil security provides a framework for appreciating the importance of soils for planetary health and in turn human wellbeing.
5 December 2018The region is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth and its polar bears and melting glaciers have become key symbols of climate change. But the Arctic, it seems, is not as well researched as we think it is.
4 December 2018The Integrated Carbon Observation System, ICOS, announces that Norunda and additional 14 greenhouse gas measurement stations have been certified for standardized data production. ICOS data helps to reveal the carbon emissions and sinks on a European level, essential for predicting climate change and mitigating its consequences.
30 November 2018The Center for Environmental and Climate Research, CEC, received positive responses on research applications from both the European Research Council and Formas, why the organization can continue to develop and recruit both researchers and administrative staff during 2019.
29 November 2018It is important to make science relevant for policy makers, CECs Jasmine Livingston argues in her recent thesis.
27 November 2018Today Lina Herbertsson from the CEC will take part in the final of Researchers Grand Prix, where researchers from Swedish universities challenge each other making the best oral presentation of their research.
