AVOID 1: Mitigation scenarios of ocean acidification using simple and complex models

October 29, 2009

Ocean acidification as a result of absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere is believed to have potentially detrimental impacts on ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, affecting both its productivity and its ability to act as a “buffer” to climate change.

A combination of simple and complex […]

AVOID 1: Report on costs of different paths towards a low carbon world

October 9, 2009

This report describes running nine AVOID emissions scenarios through the WITCH economic model, the results of which are that:

temperature stabilization compatible with the targets of the European Union and the G8 might have important economic repercussions. The costs of such policies depend on when the transaction to […]

AVOID 1: Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions Review (LULUCF)

October 9, 2009

This report assess the current knowledge about CO2 emissions from land use change over the last century. For the previous 25 years, 20% of all anthropogenic CO2 emissions came from LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry). Most landuse change emissions are from deforestation, but there is […]

AVOID 1: Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions Review

September 28, 2009

The aim of this report is to review existing global emission inventories of the six Kyoto greenhouse gases (GHGs) including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).

The following data sources are considered:

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate […]

AVOID 1: Review of Literature subsequent to IPCC AR4

July 25, 2009

This report provides a review of the most relevant recent literature in the areas of climate science, impacts of climate change and climate change economics, with a focus on post IPCC Fourth Assessment report work. It also provides information on the key research gaps which might have a […]
