    • CO2 emissions from biomass combustion for bioenergy: atmospheric decay and contribution to global warming 

      Cherubini, Francesco; Peters, Glen Philip; Berntsen, Terje Koren; Strømman, Anders Hammer; Hertwich, Edgar G. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from biomass combustion are traditionally assumed climate neutral if the bioenergy system is carbon (C) flux neutral, i.e. the CO2 released from biofuel combustion approximately equals the ...
    • A credible compliance enforcement system for the climate regime 

      Hovi, Jon; Greaker, Mads; Hagem, Cathrine; Holtsmark, Bjart (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The compliance enforcement system of the Kyoto Protocol provides only weak incentives for Parties to comply with their commitments. For example, the penalties for non-compliant countries are not legally binding, and moreover, ...
    • Capital Gains and Income Arising from Nonrenewable Resources 

      Wei, Taoyuan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Should capital gains be included in income arising from nonrenewable resources? In the present paper, I show that capital gains from a nonrenewable resource can be divided into two terms: real price change effects and real ...
    • Can conditional commitments break the climate change negotiations deadlock? 

      Underdal, Arild; Hovi, Jon; Kallbekken, Steffen; Skodvin, Tora (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
      Can a conditional commitment by a major actor (for example, the European Union) induce other major actors (such as the USA, China, India, or Japan) to do more to mitigate global climate change? We analyse this question by ...
    • Why the United States did not become a party to the Kyoto Protocol: German, Norwegian, and US perspectives 

      Hovi, Jon; Sprinz, Detlef F.; Bang, Guri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      According to two-level game theory, negotiators tailor agreements at the international level to be ratifiable at the domestic level. This did not happen in the Kyoto negotiations, however, in the US case. We interviewed ...

    • Wealth-dependent and interdependent strategies in the Saami reindeer husbandry, Norway 

      Næss, Marius Warg; Bårdsen, Bård-Jørgen; Tveraa, Torkild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
      It has been argued that decisions in relation to choosing strategies to a large degree depend on an organism's state. For nomadic pastoralists, wealth is an important state variable since it has been argued that differences ...
    • Cooperative Pastoral Production: Reconceptualizing the Relationship between Pastoral Labor and Production 

      Næss, Marius Warg (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      A review of the literature concerning nomadic pastoralism reveals a prevalent assumption of a positive effect of labor inputs on pastoral production. However, studies that have tried to quantify the relationship between ...
    • The acceptability of efficiency-enhancing environmental taxes, subsidies and regulation: An experimental investigation 

      Cherry, Todd; Kallbekken, Steffen; Kroll, Stephan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
      Public opposition to efficiency-enhancing policies is a significant barrier to addressing many environmental challenges. We use a market experiment to explore the acceptability of three types of instruments: Pigouvian taxes ...
    • Mean-curvature watersheds: A simple method for segmentation of a digital elevation model into terrain units 

      Romstad, Bård; Etzelmuller, Bernd (Journal article, 2012)
      Terrain segmentation is the process of subdividing a continuous terrain surface into discrete terrain units. If the resulting units represent meaningful geomorphic objects the approach may facilitate studies of not only ...
    • Comparing approaches to valuing sectoral net investments 

      Wei, Taoyuan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      In the literature of comprehensive national accounts, national net investments are used to indicate dynamic welfare improvement in an economy. A well-known approach associates national net investments with the shadow value ...
    • Climate change, risk management and the end of Nomadic pastoralism 

      Næss, Marius Warg (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Mobility has been argued to be the single factor explaining why some pastoralists do relatively well during extreme climatic events, while others do not, because mobility works by taking advantage of the spatial and temporal ...
    • The Australian terrestrial carbon budget 

      Haverd, V.; Raupach, MR; Briggs, P.R.; Canadell, JG; Davis, S.J.; Law, R.M.; Meyer, C.P.; Peters, Glen Philip; Pickett-Heaps, C.; Sherman, B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      This paper reports a study of the full carbon (C-CO2) budget of the Australian continent, focussing on 1990–2011 in the context of estimates over two centuries. The work is a contribution to the RECCAP (REgional Carbon ...
