  1. 1. Permafrost Modelling and Climate Change Simulations in Northern Sweden

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Petter Hällberg; [2018]
    Nyckelord :permafrost; BTS; climate change; modelling; projections; permafrost; BTS; klimatförändringar; modellering; projektioner;

    Sammanfattning : Permafrost is an important component in Arctic environments and has been hypothesized to be diminishing due to global warming. A growing concern is that large quantities of stored organic carbon will be mobilized and released to the atmosphere as the potent greenhouse gas methane if the ground thaws. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Watershed delineation for runoff estimations to culverts in the Swedish road network : a comparison between two GIS based hydrological modelling methods and a manually delineated watershed

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Iris Behrens; [2017]
    Nyckelord :GIS; hydrological modelling; watershed: single flow direction algorithm; multiple flow direction algorithm; climate change adaption; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The anticipated climate changes are predicted to alter the precipitation patterns in Sweden. Increased episodes of intense short-duration rainfall and higher intensities of day long-duration rainfall are expected. Road sections are often a target of flooding, causing impassable roads, due to the lack of capacity of drainage systems. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Effects of climate change on freezing damage in three subarctic bryophyte species

    Master-uppsats, Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Författare :Marlene Kassel; [2017]
    Nyckelord :freezing damage; bryophytes; subarctic; climate change;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is expected to have a strong impact on subarctic ecosystems. Increased temperatures as well as altered precipitation and snow cover patterns are predicted to change species distribution and affect biogeochemical processes in the subarctic tundra. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Uncertainties Associated with Hydrological Terrain Analysis in Flat Topography Wetlands

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Staffan Druid; [2017]
    Nyckelord :uncertainty; runoff; flat landscapes; wetlands; osäkerhet; avrinning; flackt landskap; våtmarker;

    Sammanfattning :  Describing how water flows in flat landscapes is generally difficult as the main driving force behind surface runoff is elevation differences. In an experiment designed to delineate the uncertainty in catchment areas created in software for geographical information systems (GIS), a flow algorithm that distributes the flow from one point to all of the neighbours with lower elevation was used.

  5. 5. De tysta åren : Ekofeminism i svensk tryckt press 1995-2016

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för humaniora

    Författare :Angelina Elander; [2017]
    Nyckelord :ecofeminism; feminism; Swedish press; visual text analysis; power; semiotics; patriarchate; environmental communication; disinformation; strategic communication; media; sociology; ekofeminism; feminism; svensk tryckt press; visuell textanalys; makt; semiotik; patriarkat; miljökommunikation; desinformation; strategisk kommunikation; sociologi;

    Sammanfattning : Ekofeminism figurerar i både politiska och filosofiska sammanhang och är en ideologi som kombinerar feminism med miljöpolitik. Den bygger sin ideologi på att motarbeta ett patriarkalt förtryck mot både kvinnor och natur och säger att detta förtryck härrör från en historisk föreställning om kvinnan som stående närmare naturen.
