Keywords: Web-based modelling Big Data Web services OGC standards a b s t r a c t Recent evolutions in computing science and web technology provide the environmental community with continuously expanding resources for data collection and analysis that pose unprecedented challenges to the design of analysis methods, workflows, and interaction with data sets.(More)
Changing food consumption patterns and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been a matter of scientific debate for decades. The agricultural sector is one of the major GHG emitters and thus holds a large potential for climate change mitigation through optimal management and dietary changes. We assess this potential, project emissions, and(More)
Global food production needs to be increased by 60-110% between 2005 and 2050 to meet growing food and feed demand. Intensification and/or expansion of agriculture are the two main options available to meet the growing crop demands. Land conversion to expand cultivated land increases GHG emissions and impacts biodiversity and ecosystem services. Closing(More)
The intention of the presented study is to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that caused the bimodal rainfall–runoff responses which occurred up to the mid-1970s regularly in the Schäfertal catchment and vanished after the onset of mining activities. Understanding this process is a first step to understanding the ongoing hydrological change in(More)
Human development has far-reaching impacts on the surface of the globe. The transformation of natural land cover occurs in different forms, and urban growth is one of the most eminent transformative processes. We analyze global land cover data and extract cities as defined by maximally connected urban clusters. The analysis of the city size distribution for(More)
The importance of model uncertainties arising from different assumptions about human behavior as opposed to parameter uncertainty is often neglected in integrated models for policy development. In this study, so-called agent model uncertainty is estimated in relation to the choice of agent rationality. A classification scheme is proposed which allows us(More)
There are errors in the Materials and Methods under the subheading " Assessing Fossil Energy and GHG Emissions. " The correct text is: For estimating fossil energy and GHG emissions associated with the dietary patterns, we combined data on agricultural energy output/input (O/ I) ratio (R O/I) [5], on agricultural non-CO 2 GHG emissions [8], on feed supply(More)
