  1. 1. Meteorologiska mätningar med drönare

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära

    Författare :Christopher Greenland; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Drones; UAV; wind speed; wind direction; carbon dioxide; temperature; relative humidity; quadcopter; vertical profile; Drönare; UAV; vindhastighet; vindriktning; koldioxid; temperatur; relativ fuktighet; quadcopter; vertikal profil;

    Sammanfattning : Studien handlade om att belysa hur UAV:s kan komma till nytta i meteorologisk forskning och att ta reda på hur bra drönare är på att mäta meteorologiska storheter. Drönare, som också kallas UAV:s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) är mindre obemmanade luftfartyg som kan flyga autonomt eller fjärrstyras. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Spatial and Temporal Variations in a Perennial Firn Aquifer on Lomonosovfonna, Svalbard

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Monika Hawrylak; Emma Nilsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :perennial firn aquifer; ground penetrating radar; Svalbard; Lomonosovfonna; flerårig firnakvifer; georadar; Svalbard; Lomonosovfonna;

    Sammanfattning : A firn aquifer is a type of englacial water storage that forms when surface meltwater fills up the pore space in porous firn. If the retention time exceeds one year the feature is regarded as perennial. The melt and accumulation rates as well as the available pore space determine the formation and extent of the firn aquifer. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Nowhere in the world is there more proof of climate change than in Greenland, Ilulissat is no exception. With climate change and visible climatic shifts things are rapidly changing and already affecting the life of the people who live there. Those dramatic changes are not only affecting the Arctic but the whole global community. LÄS MER
