  1. 1. ENSO teleconnections - Analysis of time lag between tropical Pacific sea surface temperature and climate and vegetation anomalies

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

    Författare :Jiri Navrátil; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; ENSO; teleconnections; climate; NDVI; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects weather and climate in regions spread all around the Earth via teleconnections. While quite a lot of research has been done on recognizing what regions are affected by these and what is the sign of the associated temperature, rainfall and vegetation anomalies, not that much attention has been paid to the timing of the impacts with respect to the ENSO state.

  2. 2. Ashish Vivekar (2020) Evaluation of methodology for estimating crop yield from multispectral UAV images : a case study at Lönnstorp, Sweden

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

    Författare :Ashish Vivekar; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; Multispectral Sensor; Radiometric Correction; Reflection calibration; Phenology; GEM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Adaptation of modern Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and multispectral sensor technology in agriculture can enhance the capacity to accurately monitor crops. But these technologies come with its own set of challenges. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

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

    Författare :Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Reindeer induced changes in vegetation composition and plant traits on a tundra-forest border

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

    Författare :Femke Pijcke; [2019]
    Nyckelord :physical geography; ecosystem analysis; plant functional traits; nutrient allocation; grazing; reindeer; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) are the most common large herbivores in the arctic. With a habitat spreading over the entire circumpolar region, they can have a substantial effect on plant species composition and ecosystem processes and functions. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Land cover changes in Southern Sweden from the mid-Holocene to present day: insights for ecosystem service assessments

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

    Författare :Robert O'Dwyer; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Götaland; Landscape Reconstruction Algorithm; Fossil Pollen; Ecosystem Services; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change and human impact play a huge role in the sustainability and development of ecosystems and the services they offer to societies over temporal and spatial scales. Fossil pollen-based estimates provide unique information on past land cover change, but to date there are not many methods able to create spatially continuous maps and have a fine scale of land cover changes inferred from pollen information.
