The successful Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation at Umeå University is now kicking off twelve new doctoral projects with ten new industrial partners. Co-funded doctoral education is a win-win situation providing companies and doctoral students with valuable experience.
Due to their worldwide distribution, trees have an extraordinary role in removing excessive amounts of CO2 released by our highly industrialized and mobile modern societies from the atmosphere. So far however, no tool exists which would enable scientists to precisely calculate the carbon dioxide upt...
Many current climate studies focus solely on increases in temperature, and in doing so, the ecosystem effects caused by climate change may be misinterpreted. In a new study, Umeå researchers are emphasising that shortage of nitrogen can limit how arctic streams respond to global warming. The results...
