    The perceptions of climate change and adaptation choices made by farmers are important considerations in the design of adaptation strategies by policy makers and agricultural extension services. This paper seeks to determine ...
  • Badelt, Ole; Heuer, Philipp; M., Mamali; A., Kapiota; E., Ntouni (Hannover : Leibniz Universität Hannover, Institut für Umweltplanung, 2018)
    The phenomenon of urban heat islands (UHI) in Athens is well documented (LIVADA, S ANTAMOURIS and ASSIMAKOPOULOS 2007; MIHALAKAKOU , S ANTAMOURIS , P APANIKOLAOU , CARTALIS and T SANGRASSOULIS 2004). Studies range from ...
  • Igel, J.; Günther, T.; Kuntzer, M. (Göttingen : Copernicus GmbH, 2013)
    Freshwater lenses, as important resource for drinking water, are sensitive to climate changes and sea level rise. To simulate this impact on the groundwater systems, hydraulic subsurface models have to be designed. Geophysical ...
  • Lahdo, Rabi; Springer, André; Pfeifer, Ronny; Kaierle, Stefan; Overmeyer, Ludger (Amsterdam : Elsevier B.V., 2016)
    According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a worldwide reduction of CO2-emissions is indispensable to avoid global warming. Besides the automotive sector, lightweight construction is also of high ...

  • Sedhom, Amel Ben; Jordan, Hanna; Papaevangelou, Eleni (Hannover : Leibniz Universität Hannover, Institut für Umweltplanung, 2018)
    The city of Athens is characterised by urbanisation and migratory waves. In relation to the changing climate with an overall increasing temperature and a significantly higher amount of extreme events, the city is especially ...
  • Zorndt, Anna C.; Schlurmann, Torsten; Grabemann, Iris (Reston : American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012)
    The salinity and its longitudinal distribution in the Weser estuary, Germany, has implications for water management as the estuarine water is needed, e.g., for irrigation of the agricultural used hinterlands and as industrial ...
  • Zorndt, Anna C.; Goseberg, Nils; Schlurmann, Torsten (Reston : American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2014)
    The hydrodynamics of estuaries are forced by the tides from the open sea and the river runoff from the catchment area. The hinterland is often low-lying and densely populated and must therefore be protected by dikes. ...
