Climate change - Learning from the past climate (Past4Future)

Start date: 01 Jan 2010, End date: 31 Dec 2014,

Past4Future will combine multidisciplinary paleoclimate records from ice cores, marine cores, speleothems, pollen and other records, concentrating on a global distribution of the records, to reconstruct climate change and variability during the present interglacial (the Holocene) and the last interglacial (known as the Eemian in northwestern Europe and as marine isotope stage 5e in the marine sedi ...

"The European integrating project COMBINE brings together research groups to advance Earth system models (ESMs) for more accurate climate projections and for reduced uncertainty in the prediction of climate and climate change in the next decades. COMBINE will contribute to better assessments of changes in the physical climate system and of their impacts in the societal and economic system. The pro ...

"The CONVERGE project will build from the concept of 'contraction and convergence' that informed the Kyoto process. C&C linked the key social concept of equal rights to emissions with the key ecological need for reduced emissions to issue a challenge to economic systems to develop fair processes for emissions reduction. CONVERGE aims to re-think globalisation by developing our understanding of con ...

Recycling Thermoset Composites of the SST (EURECOMP)

Start date: 01 May 2009, End date: 31 Jul 2012,

"The goal of this project is to set up a new route to recycle composites, which will decrease the cost of production waste disposal by 50%. The whole composites sector is now aware of the environmental rules about wastes from composites production (directive on End-of-life Vehicles 2000/53/EC or directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) which apply to their industry. The r ...

Advanced GaN packaging (AGAPAC)

Start date: 01 Oct 2008, End date: 31 Mar 2012,

"On the very last months, the Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology has made a remarked breakthrough in the world of the microwave electronics with the announcement of commercially available transistors from 5W to 180W at microwave frequencies. Coming from major transistor industrial vendors from Japon but also from US, it let equipment manufacturers and especially the one from space think that time ha ...

Conventional remediation-monitoring programmes, i.e. analysis of contaminant and metabolite concentrations over time and space, often provide inconclusive assessments due to inability to resolve among mixing of several contaminant sources, degradation, dispersion and other redistribution processes. The isoSoil objective is to firmly establish concentration-independent contaminant-specific isotope ...

"The fossil record is predominantly a record of organismal morphology. In the late 20th Century, techniques for mapping the universe of organismal form were developed – the so-called ‘morphospace’ plots – that provided a means of considering qualitatively the heterogeneity of morphospace occupation. The limitation of this approach has been that morphospaces became vehicles for discussion, not anal ...

"Model predictions are regularly made about the state of marine ecosystems and carbon cycle in a future high CO2 world. But while increased ocean stratification means lower future biological export production in some models, in others, higher temperatures inducing faster rates of biological activity drive completely the opposite response. Rates of nitrogen fixation may increase in a warmer ocean a ...

Glaciers cover 10% of the Earth’s land surface and represent an important, yet very little studied, ecosystem. The biogeochemical cycling of carbon in the glacial ecosystem is largely influenced by microbial communities on glacier surfaces that mainly consist of heterotrophic and photoautotrophic bacteria. They have the potential to play a significant role in regional carbon budgets by means of pr ...

"The fossil record provides a unique opportunity to study changes in ecological diversity over time. However, understanding palaeoecological structure is complicated by evolutionary convergence, which can cause morphologically distinct organisms to fill the same ecological niche. Integration of palaeobiomechanical methodology is necessary to understand changes in ecological structure at a function ...

"Statistical-mechanical theories will be developed and computer simulations carried out on model colloidal systems of semi-flexible rods and discs. The phase behaviour, structural and dynamical properties will be investigated as a function of the degree of internal particle flexibility. A more general virial theory for the isotropic-to-nematic phase transition in worm-like rods, which includes the ...

The convective circulation of the world's ocean exerts important controls on two key aspects of the climate system: the transport of heat around the Earth and the degree to which the oceans sequester greenhouse carbon dioxide away from the atmosphere. Models of the past circulation predict variations in its strength that have been implicated in climate change. Marine sediments record changes in oc ...

The project aims to connect the research in the metaphysics of dispositional properties with some interpretative issues brought about by quantum mechanics. One of the most intriguing phenomena occurring in the quantum world is the apparent causal connection between spatially separated systems, known as the phenomenon of non-locality. The initial goal of the project is to analyse the nature and met ...
