Direct and indirect climate change impacts in the land-use sector

Stevanović, Miodrag (2017)

Rapid exploitation of fossil resources has resulted in a massive release of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere. This anthropogenic perturbation of the complex climate system could result in...

Spatial nature conservation monitoring on the basis of ecological gradients using imaging spectroscopy

Neumann, Carsten (2017)

Ecosystem conservation and ecological restoration such as the preservation of species and habitat diversity have become recognized as an important ambition for an intentional anthropogenic exertion...

Few-layer antimonene by liquid-phase exfoliation

Gibaja, Carlos; Rodriguez-San-Miguel, David; Ares, Pablo; Gómez-Herrero, Julio; Varela, Maria; Gillen, Roland; Maultzsch, Janina; Hauke, Frank; Hirsch, Andreas; Abellán, Gonzalo; Zamora, Félix (2016)

We report on a fast and simple method to produce highly stable isopropanol/water (4:1) suspensions of few-layer antimonene by liquid-phase exfoliation of antimony crystals in a process that is assi...

From Targets to Action

Knopf, Brigitte; Fuss, Sabine; Hansen, Gerrit; Creutzig, Felix; Minx, Jan; Edenhofer, Ottmar (2017)

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015 ambitious targets for responding to the threat of climate change have been set: limiting global temperature increase to “well below ...

Challenges of the Energiewende from a policy analysis perspective

Joas, Fabian (2017)

Germany is currently restructuring its energy system, an endeavor its chancellor, Angela Merkel, called the project of the century. This Energiewende has moved into rough waters in recent years. Th...

Voraussetzungen und Hindernisse beim Zugang zu UVP-Dokumenten und Verfahrensinformationen

Odparlik, Lisa Friederike; Kerkemeyer, Andreas (2016)

Damit Verfahren mit Öffentlichkeitsbeteiligung gelingen können, bedarf es zuvor einer aktiven Information der Öffentlichkeit. Die fortschreitende Digitalisierung eröffnet hierbei den Behörden die M...

Are agencies turning a blind eye to public access to environmental assessment information?

Odparlik, Lisa Friederike (2015)

For environmental assessments (strategic environmental assessment (SEA) and environmental impact assessment (EIA)) a wide range of data and documents is gathered, processed, and produced. In planni...

Access to information and the role of environmental assessment registries for public participation

Odparlik, Lisa Friederike; Köppel, Johann (2013)

International practice shows an increasing use of web-based Environmental Assessment (EA) registries or project websites to provide public access to information. In support of statutory public part...

Environmental modelling and spatial ecology with focus on invasive Aedes mosquitoes and emergent mosquito-borne pathogens

Marcantonio, Matteo (2017)

Biological invasions are a side effect of globalisation and human modification of natural systems. Invasive mosquitoes and the pathogens that they carry are leading causes of human suffering. Mosqu...

Water security in the Syr Darya Basin

Wegerich, Kai; Van Rooijen, Daniel; Soliev, Ilkhom; Mukhamedova, Nozilakhon (2015)

The importance of water security has gained prominence on the international water agenda, but the focus seems to be directed towards water demand. An essential element of water security is the func...

The costs of benefit sharing

Soliev, Ilkhom; Wegerich, Kai; Kazbekov, Jusipbek (2015)

Ongoing discussions on water-energy-food nexus generally lack a historical perspective and more rigorous institutional analysis. Scrutinizing a relatively mature benefit sharing approach in the con...

Automated spatiotemporal landslide mapping over large areas using RapidEye time series data

Behling, Robert; Roessner, Sigrid; Kaufmann, Hermann; Kleinschmit, Birgit (2014)

In the past, different approaches for automated landslide identification based on multispectral satellite remote sensing were developed to focus on the analysis of the spatial distribution of lands...

Robust automated image co-registration of optical multi-sensor time series data

Behling, Robert; Roessner, Sigrid; Segl, Karl; Kleinschmit, Birgit; Kaufmann, Hermann (2014)

Reliable multi-temporal landslide detection over longer periods of time requires multi-sensor time series data characterized by high internal geometric stability, as well as high relative and absol...

Strategic environmental assessment for better flood risk planning in Pakistan

Hameed, Kiran (2017)

In this thesis, a possible protocol has been developed using Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in Pakistan for better flood management planning. The aim of the study was to streamline the en...

Naturalistische Pflanzungen

Köppler, Marc-Rajan (2017)

Städtische Grünflächen haben in den letzten Dekaden den Ruf bekommen schlecht gepflegt zu sein. Ökonomische Gründe werden oftmals als Ursache dafür angeführt. Neu gestaltete Anlagen versuchen in de...

Interoperability of geo-information in remote sensing-based biodiversity monitoring

Nieland, Simon (2017)

Rapid technological advances coupled with modern analysis methods has increased the quantity of geographical data and has therefore improved monitoring of local, regional and global environmental p...

"The grass is always greener on the other side": Access to environmental assessment documents in Germany in international comparison

Odparlik, Lisa Friederike (2017)

Since the first European Directive on EIA was transposed into German national law in 1990, projects with potentially harmful consequences must undergo an EIA before approval is granted. Since than,...

Infrastructure and inequality

Klenert, David Christian; Mattauch, Linus; Edenhofer, Ottmar; Lessmann, Kai (2016)

We study the impacts of investment in public capital on equity and efficiency. Taking into account stylized facts on wealth accumulation, we model agent heterogeneity through differences in savin...

Distributional effects of public investment when wealth and classes are back

Mattauch, Linus; Edenhofer, Ottmar; Klenert, David Christian; Bénard, Sophie (2016)

In developed economies, wealth inequality is high, while public capital is underprovided. Here, we study the impact of heterogeneity in saving behavior and income sources on the distributional effe...

Environmental taxation, inequality and Engel’s law

Klenert, David Christian; Schwerhoff, Gregor; Edenhofer, Ottmar; Mattauch, Linus (2016)

Empirical evidence shows that low-income households spend a high share of their income on pollution-intensive goods. This fuels the concern that an environmental tax reform could be regressive. We ...
