Katastrophen machen Geschichte : Umweltgeschichtliche Prozesse im Spannungsfeld von Ressourcennutzung und Extremereignis (2010)
Göttingen : Universitätsverlag Göttingen
Notes: Naturkatastrophen bedeuten nicht nur momenthafte Zerstörung, die nach erfolgtem Wiederaufbau wieder vergessen ist. Katastrophen haben häufig nachhaltige Auswirkungen auf Politik und Gesellschaft und damit auf die menschliche Geschichte. Sie führen mitunter zu Verordnungen, Institutionenbildung, Politikwechsel und gesellschaftlichem Umdenken, können aber auch Anlass zu Aufbruchstimmung und Fortschrittsoptimismus geben. Durch die aktuelle Diskussion zum globalen Klimawandel hat sich in der Öffentlichkeit ein stärkeres Bewusstsein für die gesellschaftliche Relevanz von Naturkatastrophen entwickelt. Welche Rolle extreme Ereignisse in der Geschichte gespielt haben und welche Strategien zu ihrer Bewältigung in verschiedenen Zeiten wirksam waren, bilden die zentralen Fragen des Sammelbandes. Die Autoren untersuchen neben klassischen Naturkatastrophen auch Seuchen und Schädlingskalamitäten in historischer Perspektive und widmen sich theoretischen Fragen zu deren Genese und Auswirkungen. Der vorliegende Band ist das Ergebnis eines Workshops, der von den Herausgebern im Rahmen des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs „Interdisziplinäre Umweltgeschichte“ unter dem Titel „Katastrophen machen Geschichte – Umweltgeschichtliche Prozesse im Spannungsfeld von Ressourcennutzung und Extremereignis“ am 6. und 7. Mai 2009 in Göttingen veranstaltet wurde.

Handeln in Hungerkrisen : Neue Perspektiven auf soziale und klimatische Vulnerabilität (2012)
Göttingen : Universitätsverlag Göttingen
Notes: In der Hungerforschung zeichnet sich ein neues Forschungsnarrativ ab, das naturale Umwelt und menschliches Handeln als eng miteinander verflochten versteht. Das Konzept der „Vulnerabilität“ menschlicher Gesellschaften spielt in diesem Zusammenhang eine zentrale Rolle. Dieser Zugang sucht die postkoloniale Frontstellung von klima- und sozialdeterministischen Hungermodellen zugunsten einer integrativen Perspektive auf das Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Natur zu überwinden. Die Praktiken der Akteure, ihr „Handeln in Hungerkrisen“, stehen dabei im Zentrum. Ziel des Bandes ist es, den Vulnerabilitätsansatz als mögliches „Brückenkonzept“ der multidisziplinär organisierten Hungerforschung vorzustellen. Das Buch vereint zu diesem Zweck Autorinnen und Autoren aus den Bereichen der Anthropologie, der Soziologie, der Geographie, der Geschichtswissenschaft und der Entwicklungsforschung. Die Beiträge analysieren aus historisierender, umweltgeschichtlicher Perspektive, wie das konstitutive Wechselspiel klimatischer und kultureller Faktoren den Betroffenen Handlungsspielräume eröffnet. Damit ermöglicht der Band nicht nur einen neuen Blick auf ein Feld, das mit dem globalen Klimawandel wieder zu einem Gegenwartsproblem geworden ist. Er weist auch darüber hinaus und illustriert die vielfältigen Formen der „Sozialisierung“ klimatischer Impulse.

Natur und Gesellschaft : Perspektiven der interdisziplinären Umweltgeschichte (2014)
Göttingen : Universitätsverlag Göttingen
Notes: Umweltgeschichte hat sich zu einem bedeutenden Themenfeld historischer Forschung entwickelt. Die Betrachtung vergangener Mensch-Umwelt-Interaktionen kann zum Verständnis heutiger Wechselwirkungen beitragen und Orientierungswissen für aktuelle gesellschaftliche und politische Umwelt-Debatten bereitstellen. Die Einrichtung des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs 1024 „Interdisziplinäre Umweltgeschichte. Naturale Umwelt und gesellschaftliches Handeln in Mitteleuropa“ an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen 2004 war ein wichtiger Schritt zur Etablierung der Umweltgeschichte in der deutschen Forschungslandschaft. Kennzeichnend für die Göttinger Forschungen war stets der interdisziplinäre Ansatz, welcher naturwissenschaftliche und kulturwissenschaftliche Forschungsmethoden und Forschungsfragen zu verbinden versucht. Nach neunjähriger Förderzeit beendete das Kolleg im Jahr 2013 seine Arbeit. Der vorliegende Band enthält Beiträge des Abschlussworkshops. Unter den Themenkomplexen „Die Umwelt erfassen“, „Die Umwelt planen“ und „Der Umwelt widerstehen“ geben die Autoren anhand ausgewählter Fallstudien Einblicke in einige der erreichten Forschungsergebnisse des Graduiertenkollegs.

Arctic climate and water change : Information relevance for assessment and adaptation (2013)
Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University
Call number: AWI 13-0052
Location: AWI
Branch Library: AWI Library
Keywords: Hydrology ; Monitoring ; Climate Change ; Adaptatation ; Arctic ; Arktis
Notes: The Arctic is subject to growing economic and political interest. Meanwhile, its water and climate systems are in rapid transformation. Relevant and accessible information about water and climate is therefore vital to detect, understand and adapt to the changes. This thesis investigates hydrological monitoring systems, climate model data, and our understanding of hydro-climatic change, for adaptation to water system changes in the Arctic. Results indicate a lack of harmonized water chemistry data, which may impede efforts to understand transport and origin of key waterborne constituents. Further development of monitoring cannot rely only on a reconciliation of observations and projections on where climate change will be the most severe, as they diverge in this regard. Climate model simulations of drainage basin temperature and precipitation have improved between two recent model generations, but large inaccuracies remain for precipitation projections. Late 20th-century discharge changes in major Arctic rivers generally show excess of water relative to precipitation changes. This indicates a possible contribution of stored water from permafrost or groundwater to sea level rise. The river contribution to the increasing Arctic Ocean freshwater inflow matches that of glaciers, which underlines the importance of considering all sources when assessing change. To provide adequate information for research and policy, Arctic hydrological and hydrochemical monitoring needs to be extended, better integrated and made more accessible. This especially applies to hydrochemistry monitoring, where a more complete set of monitored basins is motivated, including a general extension for the large unmonitored areas close to the Arctic Ocean. Improvements in climate model parameterizations are needed, in particular for precipitation projections. Finally, further water-focused data and modeling efforts are required to resolve the source of excess discharge in Arctic rivers.
