  1. Utilization-focused scientific policy advice: a six-point checklist 

    Kaufmann, David; Sager, Fritz; Mavrot, Céline; et al. (2020)
    ISTP4Public Video Series
    In this video of our "ISTP4Public" series, Prof. David Kaufmann from ETH Zurich’s Spatial Development and Urban Policy Group highlights the need for policy advice that includes considerations of implementability and acceptance of the proposed policy. To help climate scientists provide such utilization-focused policy advice, Prof. Kaufmann worked together with various researchers and formulated a six-point checklist. One of their key ...

  2. Policy packaging can make food system transformation feasible 

    Fesenfeld, Lukas Paul; Wicki, Michael; Sun, Yixian; et al. (2020)
    ISTP4Public Video Series
    “ISTP4Public” started its journey with a recent article on food system transformation, which was published in Nature Food. This study examines how potentially effective policy instruments may be designed and combined so as to reduce public backlash and ensure political feasibility of transforming the food system.

  3. What drives public support for policies to enhance electric vehicle adoption? 

    Brückmann, Gracia; Bernauer, Thomas; Voudrisli, Marina; et al. (2020)
    ISTP4Public Video Series
    The second video of the "ISTP4Public" video series provides fresh insights into the public support and the political feasibility of policy options for promoting EV adoption. Based on a choice experiment, ISTP PhD student Gracia Brückmann and Prof. Thomas Bernauer found that pull measures, such as subsidies for electric cars, attract more public support even when policy funding is revealed. This suggests that more ambitious pull measures ...

  4. Improved on-farm storage reduces seasonal food insecurity of smallholder farmer households 

    Brander, Michael; Huss, Matthias; Bernauer, Thomas; et al. (2020)
    ISTP4Public Video Series
    In this "ISTP4Public" video, we focused on a research project investigating low-cost technology for improved on-farm storage. The multi-disciplinary research team responsible for the project includes researchers in Switzerland (ETH Zurich; University of Zurich), research institutes in Africa, and NGOs/IGOS specialized in rural development (Helvetas; UN World Food Programme’s Global Post Harvest Knowledge & Operations Centre). To analyse ...

  8. Borehole Camera Video of Englacial Conduit 

    Church, Gregory James (2020)
    During a 2018 field campaign on Rhonegletscher, several hot water boreholes were drilled in order to provide direct observations into an active englacial conduit network. The presented video shows the borehole camera being lowered into the active englacial conduit. The camera is initially lowered into murky water before reaching the active conduit. Whilst positioned in the conduit the camera is violently shaken, as a result of flowing ...

  10. Detailed evolution of warm conveyor belt ascent and associated upper-level potential vorticity field in a convection-resolving simulation 

    Oertel, Annika (2020)
    Warm conveyor belts are typically described as coherent ensemble of slowly and slantwise ascending trajectories. However, rapid quasi-vertical convective ascent can be embedded within the region of larger-scale WCB ascent. This WCB-embedded convection can be represented by online trajectories in high-resolution convection-resolving simulations of the atmospheric flow. The strong diabatic processes associated with WCB ascent and its embedded ...

  11. Animation of the Hangai and Gobi-Altai resistivity model (Mongolia) 

    Käufl, Johannes S. (2020)
    A video animation of the electrical resistivity model of the Hangai and Gobi-Altai region in Mongolia. The model was created with a multiscale inversion of magnetotelluric data. Measurement locations are shown by grey spheres. Additional geologic information is shown in the end of the video. Fault traces are shown by grey lines, cenozoic volcanism by red spheres, geothermal activity by light blue spheres and a geothermal high heat flow ...

  12. Videos of Subglacial Till Dynamics 

    Gräff, Dominik; Walter, Fabian (2019)
    During a field campaign at Rhonegletscher in summer 2018 we drilled several holes through 190 m ice to the glacier bed. We deployed a borehole camera approximately 15 cm above the glacier bed in different boreholes for a timespan of 20 days in total. The presented dataset contains two time lapse videos of the borehole camera that shows the basal till dynamics on a time scale of hours. Additionally, one video shows how we actively dug into ...
