  1. 1. Investigation Of Source Parameters Of Earthquakes In Northern Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Geofysik

    Författare :María González-Caneda; [2019]
    Nyckelord :spectral analysis; earthquake source observations; ω-2 source model; moment magnitude; local magnitude; Northern Sweden seismicity.;

    Sammanfattning : By studying the frequency domain of seismic signals generated by earthquakes, the source parameters can be recovered, i.e., the seismic moment (M0) and the stress drop (Δσ). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Determining shallow P-wave velocity and its engineering implication in Adama City, Ethiopia

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/GeofysikUppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Författare :Tasnim Laskar; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Ethiopia; seismic refraction; earthquake;

    Sammanfattning : A great number of the urban areas in Ethiopia are situated within the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia, a system consisting of depressions and large faults. As a region with significant seismic activities, it is vital that careful planning is implemented to avoid constructing buildings on flat surfaces as they can amplify ground motion in the case of an earthquake.

  3. 3. When Traditional Power Structures are Trembling : A qualitative analysis of aid agencies focus on gender roles and contribution to potential changes in those following the earthquakes in Nepal 2015.

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Elina Hedman; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Disaster; gender; women; vulnerability; humanitarian aid; earthquake; Nepal; empowerment; window of opportunity; double disaster; qualitative content analysis.;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines how and to what extent humanitarian aid organizations strategically focus on gender roles following disasters, and how they contribute to potential changes in gender roles. The case selected for the study is Nepal after the 2015 earthquakes where the reports of four international humanitarian aid organizations were examined through a qualitative content analysis.

  4. 4. Where’s Waddan? Missing Maps and cross-cultural voluntary engagement in ICT4D initiatives

    Magister-uppsats, Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Författare :Joanna Keenan; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Communications; Development; ICT4D; Volunteering; Slacktivism; crowdsourcing; data; humanitarian; mapping;

    Sammanfattning : In the wake of the Haiti earthquake response in 2010, crowdsourced humanitarian mapping has taken off, and today is considered an essential tool by many humanitarian agencies providing assistance in disaster-affected and under-resourced countries and contexts. But what happens when there is no information on a map to help agencies decide how to respond? If they cannot find roads to take to get there? If they do not know how many houses are in a village? What if the map is – missing? In response to this all-too-common problem, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), American Red Cross, British Red Cross and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) created and launched Missing Maps in 2014.

  5. 5. Seismic Analysis of Norra Tornen : A Comparison Based on the Requirements in Eurocode 8

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Författare :Andreas Barbaranelli; Andreas Wallin; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Earthquake design; High-Rise buildings; Tall buildings; Seismic Performance; Earthquake Engineering; Modal analysis; FE-analysis; Eurocode 8; Geotechnical engineering; Design Concepts; Foundation;

    Sammanfattning : In Sweden, buildings are not designed to withstand earthquakes due to the rarity of an earthquake event and its consequential damage. However, the aim of this thesis was to study the seismic performance of some of the highest buildings in Stockholm, called Innovationen and Helix. LÄS MER
