environmental research methods and techniques: quantitative and qualitative methods( to be done by one of the best environmental researcher please)
I am looking forward to getting help from a very professional and highly qualified environmental researcher. these are the past exam questions from oxford university. here are the following topics, would you please help me to present a clear structure of each topics by using bullet points under each argument. and make some intensive research if possible please sir. please outline the structure of each topic respectively and systematically, If 4 pages are not enough to finish, please tell me any time and I will expand my order. here are my topics:
? quantitative method
? Describe the principle components of the carbon stores and cycle of EITHER a European woodland OR a tropical forest. What techniques would you employ to quantify the main components and what are the key uncertainties?
? “Qualitative methodologies have considerable potential for researching contentious environmental issues.” Critically discuss this statement making reference to examples of published work and at least two qualitative methodologies.
? .Think of your dissertation research as a case study, and then articulate what your research is a case oj Briefly outline your topic, then argue for the data you have chosen to collect and how these data affect your ability to generalize to other contexts. You should be able to discuss where you believe your research lies on two spectra: case conceptions and units of analysis. Is the case conception (the idea behind your data) specific to your research (e.g., defined by you) or external to the project (e.g., collectively recognized by others, prior to the research)? As for the data themselves, what units are you analysing? Have you ‘found’ your case(s), or did you have to ‘make’ them?
? qualitative method
‘Qualitative methodologies have considerable potential for researching contentious environmental issues.’ Critically discuss this statement making reference to examples of published work.
? Outline potential gains and pitfalls of qualitative research into resource use, at either the household level or the institutional level. What are the most important considerations in designing such research in terms o f formulating questions, sampling, conducting the research and analysis of findings?
? Design a study using appropriate quantitative and qualitative methods to monitor ecosystem impacts and evaluate potential adaptation to global climate change in a vulnerable human community.
? Which innovations and technologies are most likely to help us reach lower carbon futures and sustainability in the energy sphere?
? Using an example of either a) a qualitative study or b) a quantitative study, discuss how in the case of a) the research objective could be better informed by using a more quantitative approach; and in the case of b) how the research objective could be better informed by using a more qualitative approach.
