Application of nonlinear hierarchical models to the kinetic evaluation of chemical degradation data

Guidance for the use of an R markdown template file


In this report, nonlinear hierarchical models and their use for the kinetic evaluation of chemical degradation data are presented. These models allow for a joint evaluation of multiple data sets, directly resulting in overall degradation parameters and their statistical distribution. Common problems occurring in the separate kinetic evaluation of each dataset with subsequent amalgamation of the ki...read more

Environmental Protection in the Arctic – support of German activities in the Arctic Council in terms of a pilot study on monitoring plastic litter on arctic coastlines applying remote sensing techniques


Uniform monitoring of beach litter in the Arctic is crucial for assessing the state of the environment and the success of measures against plastic debris to protect the marine environment. In this project, remote sensing methods such as satellite imagery and drone imagery were used to efficiently survey beaches in the Arctic. The results show that a combination of satellite imagery, drone imagery,...read more

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) - Contribution to the discussion on its integration into national climate action strategies


The UBA position paper assesses the usefullness of carbon capture and storage (⁠CCS⁠ for short) as a climate protection instrument. It describes guidelines for sustainable use, as well as the necessary monitoring and risk prevention. The effects of CCS on human health and the environment are also considered. According to the paper, CCS cannot replace greenhouse gas reductions and the...read more
