Stirling’s research papers for Scottish Climate Week #ScotClimateWeek

To mark Scottish Climate Week we’ve compiled a list of the climate related publications from the University of Stirling research repository: STORRE.


It’s great to see the broad range of work from across the University: from papers about governance dimensions of climate and energy security to managing climate change in conservation practice to carbon dependency and narratives of transition to a thesis on modelling climate change in Scotland upto 2100 to the disaster caused by climate change in Scotland in the Long Fourteenth Century!
