The 2018 Travel Grant

The BUP Travel Grant 2018 goes to support PhD student YAROSLAV BEZYK, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland, research visit to Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine.

The BUP Travel Grant 2018 committee recommends supporting PhD student’s YAROSLAV BEZYK, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, research visit to Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine.

The on-going research is significant for the assessment of carbon cycle in urban territories, thus, contributing to the development of sustainable cities. At the same time, the elaborated model could be widely replicated to the countries of the Baltic region. The visit will contribute to the development of spatial regression model for construction of carbon balance in urban ecosystems. The model will quantify carbon cycle in cities under global climate change conditions by validating emissions of Green House Gases at regional and local levels. The model, based on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) regression-mapping technique and Life Cycle assessment (LCA) approach, will contribute to the assessment of CO2 and CH4 fluxes and uptakes under different environmental and dispersion conditions.
