15 March 2019Many BECC researchers has written a debate article that underlines that the demands from the youths are to be taken seriously and action is needed
6 February 2019The 6th and 7th of December 2018, the first multidisciplinary workshop gathering early career researcher from BECC was held in Halmstad, organized by Romain Carrié, Nils Droste and Marion Dupoux, all young researchers within BECC.
1 February 2019Growing forests can limit climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon in their biomass as they grow. How much carbon a forest stores varies between tree species, the forests age, weather conditions and how the forest is managed.
24 January 20196 PhD positions within the BECC area, covering drought, wetlands, post-fire forest ecosystems, microbial soil, sustainable forest management and balancing agriculture in a policy context.
20 December 2018A well visited full day with engaged and broad audience and speakers were the results of the first official BECC grand seminar jointly organized with MERGE. A grand seminar is defined as a full day filled with speakers and possibilities for discussions. November 26, BECC and MERGE jointly presented The Science and Politics of 1.5C. The organizers thank all participants and presenters of the day and we learned a lot today from many different disciplines.
5 December 2018The region is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth and its polar bears and melting glaciers have become key symbols of climate change. But the Arctic, it seems, is not as well researched as we think it is.
14 November 2018An exciting, interesting and well-visited BECC annual meeting went off October 17-18 at Falkenberg Grand Hotel. The program was filled with lessons from the past and implications for the future regarding biodiversity conservation and policy. The meeting ended with perspectives from a climate journalist and his great tips on how to communicate climate research to the public (and journalists!).
6 September 2018This year’s summer meeting in Höllviken used the theme ‘Land use and ecosystem-based climate adaptation’ as starting point for presentations and discussions.
5 September 2018The project Coastal adaptation to climate change by multiple ecosystem-based measures is multidisciplinary and involves partnership between natural science, social science, geotechnology, engineers, the citizens and public administration on all levels.
9 August 2018Arctic climate change research relies on field measurements and samples that are too scarce, and patchy at best. The researchers in the BECC action group looked at thousands of scientific studies, and found that around 30% of cited studies were clustered around only two research stations in the vast Arctic region. A paper in Nature Ecology & Evoloution was one of the result from the action group "Identifying gaps and priorities in Arctic environmental research".
