  1. Trends in Global Vegetation Activity and Climatic Drivers Indicate a Decoupled Response to Climate Change

    Detailed understanding of a possible decoupling between climatic drivers of plant productivity and the response of ecosystems vegetation is required. We compared trends in six NDVI metrics (1982–...

  2. CO2 emissions from fuel combustion Part III: Total Greenhouse Gas Emissions; 2015 Edition

    To show the changes in energy-related CO 2 emission in response to economic and policy developments, the annual reference publication “CO 2 emissions from fuel combustion” by the...

  3. Integration and Convergence in Regional Europe

    Place-based smart specialisation strategies are one of the prerequisites to access Structural Funds as of 2014. However, policy research analysing regional smart specialisation strategies has been...

  4. Exploring resource efficiency for energy, land and phosphorus use: Implications for resource scarcity and the global environment

    In this paper, we present four model-based scenarios exploring the potential for resource efficiency for energy, land and phosphorus use, and implications for resource depletion, climate change and...

  5. Joint Actions for Air Quality and Climate Mitigation in Europe

    Combined action for air and climate can be undertaken by (i) targeting atmospheric compounds that happen to have detrimental impacts on health, ecosystem and climate at the same time (short lived...

  6. Assessing Intended Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Climate Agreement

    Climate plans submitted by countries in the run-up to the Paris Summit could, if fully implemented, deliver significant reductions in the emission of greenhouse gases. Without new climate policy,...

  7. Cross-roads of Life on Earth: Exploring means to meet the 2010 Biodiversity Target

    The continuing economic and demographic growth, and the accompanying increase in food production, forestry, intensification of agriculture, fragmentation and climate change are causing the...

  8. Implications of long-term scenarios for medium-term targets (2050)

    If fast and substantial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is postponed further, there are fewer options available to stay below a 2 °C warming at the end of the century. Delayed action is...

  9. CityDelta: a model intercomparison study to explore the impact of emission reductions in European cities in 2010

    In the context of the Clean Air For Europe programme of the European Commission, the CityDelta project was designed to evaluate the impact of emission-reduction strategies on air quality at the...

  10. Uncertainty assessment of local NO2 concentrations derived from error-in-variable external drift kriging and its relationship to the 2010 air quality standard

    Local NO 2 concentrations near Rotterdam (Netherlands) were assessed for the year 2010, focusing on the uncertainties and the changes in exceedance of European air quality standards.
