1. Saltwater Intrusion in Fractured Crystalline Bedrock Aquifer. - A Case Study on Koster Islands, SW SwedenMaster-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : Saltwater intrusion (SWI) is one of the significant threats in many coastal areas, mainly drivenby anthropogenic hazards (over-pumping) and climate change (sea level rise). So far, there havebeen extensive research and techniques to understand and minimize SWI. LÄS MER
2. Planning for sea level rise in Sweden : A study regarding how the parliamentary parties relate to climate change adaptation of sea level riseMaster-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik
Sammanfattning : The consequences due to sea level rise are many, and will affect the environment and societies all around the world. There is uncertainty about how much and how quickly the sea will rise. Despite the uncertainties, society must be adapted to a changing climate. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Flood risk increases with rising sea levels and coastal settlements need to adapt to this increasing risk. For that, hazard and risk assessments are an important step. Coastal floods have caused problems in Iceland in the past and are thought to do so in the future as well. LÄS MER
5. Arctic Loess as an Environmental Archive : Identifying Weathering with XRF Analysis in West GreenlandKandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
Sammanfattning : Loess from west Greenland was studied to evaluate Holocene paleoclimate in the Arctic region. Deposits of loess are formed over long time scales through deposition of fine aeolian sediment and they exist in several places in the world. LÄS MER
