  1. 1. How Can Unit Pricing Be Employed and Improve Municipal Waste Management in Shanghai?

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Författare :Lan Li; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Pay As You Throw; Unit Pricing; Municipal Solid Waste Management; Source Separation; Waste Reduction; Recycling Behavior; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : China is on a transition to waste management charging reform and pursuing effective eco-nomic incentives on an individual level. Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT)/Unit pricing is recog-nized as an important and effective means to waste prevention and source segregation ren-dered by the government mostly in the developed countries.

  2. 2. Evaluation of water stress mapping methods in vineyards using airborne thermal imaging

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

    Författare :Alon Zuta; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Geography; Geographical information systems; GIS; Remote sensing; Cover crop; Thermal imaging; Spatial variability; vineyards; interpolation; water stress index; CWSI; Ig; stem water potential; UAV; Rheingau; Interpolation.; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : With low cost and high efficiency, use of airborne infrared thermography imaging from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has become a widely used technique to measure plant water stress. With that, the use of UAV mounted thermal camera as a precision agriculture technique to map crop water stress is not trivial and its success is depended on variety of factors which are still needed to be studied and understood.

  3. 3. Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

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

    Författare :Marwa al Kabban; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; GIS; Sea Level Rise; Vulnerability Assessment; Modelling Sea Level Rise; Impacts Assessment of Sea Level Rise; GIS application in Sea Level Rise; Disaster Risk Reduction DRR ; Government Information Sharing GIS ; ArcGIS Web App Builder Dashboard; Sea Level Rise Story Map; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : The phenomenon of global warming has become a fact, however; the uncertainty is about the magnitude and acceleration of its manifestations. Global mean sea level rise is one of the results induced by global warming and is happening with an undetectable accelerated pace. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Automatiserad mönsterigenkänning av stenmurar

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för datavetenskap och samhällsbyggnad; Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för datavetenskap och samhällsbyggnad

    Författare :Adam Bergström; David Larsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Automatic Pattern Recognition; Stone Walls; Dense Forest; LiDAR; SPL100; Automatisk mönsterigenkänning; Stenmurar; Tät skog; Li-DAR; SPL100;

    Sammanfattning : Automated pattern recognition of stone walls, within both point cloud and image processing, can help identify previously inaccessible areas than with only image pro-cessing. This is important as stone walls are biotopes and serve as structures and have ecological functions for both plants and animals. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Po Delta Biosphere Reserve: Management challenges and priorities deriving from anthropogenic pressure and sea level rise

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

    Författare :Damiano Vesentini; [2019]
    Nyckelord :geography; GIS; environmental pressure; water quality; nutrient accumulation; rising sea level; climate change; value for conservation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The Po Delta Biosphere Reserve is located in Northern Italy and has attained recognition by UNESCO in 2015 due to its unique natural and cultural value. The reserve covers an area of approximately 140 000 hectares, supporting a human population of 118 000, as well as a complex mosaic of ecosystems, which are found in this transitional waters landscape.
