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 ...

How to make a carbon tax reform progressive

Klenert, David Christian; Mattauch, Linus (2016)

This letter analyzes the distributional effects of a carbon tax reform when households must consume carbon-intensive goods above a subsistence level. The reform is progressive if revenues are recyc...

Rents, taxes, and distribution

Franks, Robert Maximilian (2016)

Economists commonly perceive climate change as a negative environmental externality, and in the political arena, environmental ministries are in charge of finding solutions to the problem of climat...

Making benefit-sharing a success

Soliev, Ilkhom (2016)

In the light of growing global water crises, benefit sharing has been increasingly suggested to transform a potential conflict over transboundary water resources into an opportunity to enhance coop...

Common goods & distribution

Klenert, David Christian (2016)

Tax policy in the 21st century faces three key challenges: mitigating inequality, the possibility of high levels of global warming through the unregulated release of greenhouse gases into the atmos...

Key ecosystem engineers in estuarine vegetation

Heuner, Maike (2016)

One key service of estuarine marsh vegetation is flooding and storm surge protection by virtue of them dissipating the energy of waves and currents. This vegetation-based shoreline protection is mo...

Sommerfrische als Symbol- und Erlebnisraum bürgerlichen Lebensstils

Lippmann, Hans-Christian (2016)

This book shall contribute to the theory and history of touristic use of rural open spaces that are labeled as ‘idyllic’, ‘natural’, ‘rural’ or ‘original’ in the language of tourism. Travelers an...

Derivation of spatiotemporal landslide activity for large areas using long-term multi-sensor satellite time series data

Behling, Robert (2016)

The main principle in landslide hazard and risk assessment is that conditions of past and present landslide activity indicate future landslide occurrence. Hence, the probabilistic assessment of lan...

Steinplatz meets Campus – minimalinvasive landschaftsarchitektonische Umgestaltung

(2016)

Wettbewerbe verdeutlichen die Vielfalt der Ergebnisse und bieten Betroffenen die unentbehrliche Diskussionsgrundlage für räumliche Entscheidungen. Dies trifft auch für den Steinplatz in Berlin zu. ...
