Keine Trendwende beim CO2-Ausstoss

ost - 2 Oct 14
Eine neue Studie in Nature Geoscience zum Global Carbon Project, das alle Daten zum CO2-Kreislauf zusammenfasst, zeigt: Die CO2-Emissionen wachsen aktuell immer noch um rund 2.5 Prozent pro Jahr. Damit laufe uns die Zeit für ein griffiges Klimaabkommen immer mehr davon, sagt Reto Knutti im Zukunftsblog (Nature Geoscience, Tages-Anzeiger, St. Galler Tagblatt Online, 20 Minuten Online).

Our research

We study the processes and interactions of different environmental systems on various scales, from the molecular scale to global environmental, production and supply systems. The approach of our research is systems-oriented and interdisciplinary.

Agro-ecosystems and world food system  Atmosphere and climate  Biogeochemistry and pollutant dynamics  Ecology, evolution and health  Human and environment  Soil and landuse

 

What we teach

In our two study programmes, we teach the scientific foundation to analyse complex sound environmental and food systems. Based on a scientific understanding of the problem, students learn to analyse problems and develop solutions to quantitatively evaluate and implement them.

Impact of selective logging in tropical forests underestimated

For the first time ETH Zurich doctoral student Zuzana Burivalova and her colleagues have studied how much the impact on biodiversity depends on logging intensity. [31.07.2014]

Body odour reveals malarial infection

muecken
An infection with malaria pathogens changes the scent of infected mice, making those infected more attractive to mosquitos. These are the findings of a team of researchers from ETH Zurich and Pennsylvania State University, headed by Prof. Consuelo De Moraes in a new study. [30.06.2014]

Straw albedo mitigates extreme heat

albedo

Fields that are not tilled after crop harvesting reflect a greater amount of solar radiation than tilled fields. This phenomenon can reduce temperatures in heat waves by as much as 2 °C, as researchers from ETH have demonstrated in a recent study. [23.06.2014]
