  1. 1. Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces

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

    Författare :Jip Jan van Zoonen; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Digital Elevation Model; DEM; Glaciology; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces This study explores methods to quantify and evaluate error in digital elevation models (DEMs) built from remotely sensed elevation data of the Hintereisferner glacier. A special focus lies on glacier surfaces because glaciers are often inaccessible for field observations but at the same time prone to measurement errors. LÄS MER

  2. 2. "Tourism Rules Everything Around Me" : A Case Study on Alienation and Tourism in the Alps

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Humanekologi

    Författare :Franz-Josef Greiter; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Tourism; Alienation; Mountain Tourism; Acceleration; Extended Case Method; Human Ecology; Austrian Alps; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Tourism has become one of the largest and fastest growing industries of the global capitalist economy. In the case of Austria, it is responsible for nearly one sixth of the GDP. This development is connected to an incredible economic growth and structural changes in formerly remote mountain villages in the Austrian Alps. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Processes of lateral moraine formation at a debris-covered glacier, Suldenferner (Vedretta di Solda), Italy

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Författare :Monika Rabanser; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Lateral moraines; Moraine genesis; Moraine stability; Debris-covered glaciers; Clast shape; Alps; Sedimentology; Glacier fluctuations; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Lateral moraines are key features of glacial landscapes in high-alpine mountain areas. Research on lateral moraine formation is mostly limited to clean-ice glaciers; lateral moraine formation at the margins of debris-covered glaciers is currently poorly understood in an Alpine and sedimentological context.

  4. 4. Miniaturization of a Low Power Harmonic Radar for UAV use

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Författare :Saleh Aljaser; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Harmonic; Radar; Insects; Tracking; Detection; UAV; FMCW; Small; Low Power; Wireless; Communications; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : The aim with this Master thesis work is to design, build and test a small size, light weight and low power consumption harmonic radar system that will be installed in a flying drone for the purpose of tracking and localizing tagged Bogong moths near their aestivation caves and crevices in Australia during summer. A FMCW harmonic radar is proposed, it comprises a radar transmitter, receiver and a signal processor. LÄS MER

  5. 5. UAV based hyperspectral grassland monitoring in an alpine shallow erosion area : lessons learnt from classifying vegetation indicating shallow erosion risk

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

    Författare :John Peitz; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; Shallow Erosion; Blaiken; UAV; Hyperspectral Imaging; Alps; Grassland; Spectral Signatures; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : UAV based hyperspectral grassland monitoring in an alpine shallow erosion area Recent research in the Alps found that a reduction in grassland management is correlated to an increase in a certain type of shallow erosion areas called blaiken. This change also entails changes to the dominant grassland vegetation. LÄS MER
