- Magister-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : Some climate models are still lacking features such as dynamical modelling of ice sheets due to their computational cost which results in poor accuracy and estimates of e.g. sea level rise. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : The contribution to the global sea level change from the large ice sheet of Greenland and Antarctica if both ice sheet where to melt completely, is estimated to be approximately 70 meters. How much the actual contribution would be, is due to complex ice dynamics still unclear. LÄS MER
- Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik
Sammanfattning : Abstract An ice sheet always experience more or less melting during the summer. How much melting that occurs, is mostly determined by the albedo. Albedo is defined as the amount of the incoming shortwave radiation that gets reflected by a surface. When the sunlight starts melting the ice and snow in the summer, the albedo gets lower. LÄS MER
4. The Late Glacial History of the Magellan Strait in southern Patagonia, Chile : Testing the Applicability of KF-IRSL DatingMaster-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi
Sammanfattning : The timing of the ice margin retreat of the Late Glacial Patagonian ice sheet (PIS) in southern Patagonia has been the object of discussion for many years. In order to resolve questions about the complex response of the PIS to past climate change; geological interpretation and modelling data needs evaluation against absolute chronology. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Ice rinks are among the most energy intensive public buildings in developed and developing countries. According to a research on Swedish ice rinks; a typical ice rink consumes approximately 1185 MWh/year which leads to more than 300 GWh/year for the 342 Swedish indoor ice rinks. LÄS MER
