  1. 1. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

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

    Författare :Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The nomadic pastoralists of the Sahel are often identified as a group at the frontline of global climate change. Their existence in arid and semi-arid regions and their reliance on seasonal rainfall are among the factors that contribute to their vulnerability to drought and climate shocks. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Deformation monitoring using GNSS:A study on a local network with preset displacements

    Magister-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Samhällsbyggnad

    Författare :Peshawa Mohammed; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Deformation detection; processing parameters; GNSS; online post-processing;

    Sammanfattning : In the past two decades, the number of observations and the accuracy of satellite-basedgeodetic measurements like Global Navigation satellite systems (GNSS) greatly increased,providing measured values of displacements and velocities of permanent geodetic stations.Establishment of the geodetic control networks and collecting geodetic observations, indifferent epochs, are a commonly used method for detection of displacements andconsequently disaster management.

    Sammanfattning : Mozambique is one of the countries most affected by natural hazards in the world. Therefore it can benefit greatly from enhancements on its early warning system. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Blockchain Technology in Disaster Risk Management: Transforming the Delivery of Emergency Relief

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Författare :Carolina Källner; [2019]
    Nyckelord :blockchain technology; cash-based transfers; emergency relief; humanitarian aid; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Persisting challenges such as corruption and a lack of coordination among humanitarian organisations continuously lead to almost a third of all development assistance not reaching those in need. As various attempts of solving this dilemma have not been successful, an innovative approach is required. LÄS MER
