  1. 1. Twenty-First Century Drought Projections in Swedish Catchments

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Elise Jonsson; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Drought; climate change; drought index; climate models; catchments; societal functions; Torka; klimatförändring; torkindex; klimatmodeller; avrinningsområde; samhällsfunktioner;

    Sammanfattning : Droughts can have far-reaching and devastating effects on all sectors of society and ecology and future changes to drought and flood patterns are uncertain. This uncertainty has led to a lax response from local officials in dealing with mitigation and adaptation, particularly in Sweden. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Spatio-temporal drought characteristics in the Limpopo basin from 1918 to 2018 - A case study based on analysis of the Standardized Precipitation Evaporation Index (SPEI)

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

    Författare :Sandra Domingos Sambo; [2021]
    Nyckelord :rdought; Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index; Limpopo River basin; Normalized difference vegetation index; Mann-Kendall Test; Correlation analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The identification of the characteristics of drought are of great importance in water resources planning and management. This study explored the characteristics of drought at Limpopo River Basin (LRB) from 1918 to 2018. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Författare :Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Sammanfattning : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

  5. 5. Swedish wheat in the changing climate : screening for stable spring wheat genotypes from 2017 and 2018 with focus on protein quality for bread-making

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Författare :Axel Belsing; [2021]
    Nyckelord :wheat; gluten protein; bread-making quality; stability; climate variation; breeding; SE-HPLC; micro-structure;

    Sammanfattning : In recent years, wheat production and protein quality in wheat have been affected by climatic changes in Sweden and in many other parts of the world. Protein quality of wheat, determining the bread-making quality of flour, is a parameter sensitive to climate fluctuations and its stability has not been studied so far. LÄS MER
