  1. 1. Saltwater Intrusion in Fractured Crystalline Bedrock Aquifer. - A Case Study on Koster Islands, SW Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Sibhat Afewerki; [2019-10-30]
    Nyckelord :saltwater intrusion; fractured bedrock aquifers; DRASTIC; vulnerability mapping; Koster Islands; slatvattenintrång; Akvifer i uppsprucken berggrund; sårbarhetskartläggning; Kosteröarna;

    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. 2. Planning for sea level rise in Sweden : A study regarding how the parliamentary parties relate to climate change adaptation of sea level rise

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Eriksson Emilia; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Sea level rise; Climate change adaptation; Climate change; Politicians; The Swedish Parliament; Havsnivåhöjning; Klimatanpassning; Klimatförändringar; Politiker; Sveriges riksdag;

    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

  3. 3. Mass Balance of the High-Arctic Glacier Nordenskiöldbreen, Svalbard, in a Changing Climate

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

    Författare :Maja Gustavsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Mass balance; glacier; Nordenskiöldbreen; climate change; Massbalans; glaciär; Nordenskiöldbreen; klimatförändringar;

    Sammanfattning : Melting glaciers are the major contributor to sea level rise. Glaciers are sensitive indicators of climate change and current experience strong developments in a rapidly warming Arctic environment. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Methods for Coastal Flooding Risk Assessments : An Application in Iceland

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Guðrún Elín Jóhannsdóttir; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Coastal flooding; sea level; sea level rise; risk assessment; hazard; Havsöversvämning; havsnivå; havsnivåhöjning; riskbedömning; fara;

    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. 5. Arctic Loess as an Environmental Archive : Identifying Weathering with XRF Analysis in West Greenland

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Isabelle Karnik; [2019]
    Nyckelord :loess; XRF; weathering index; Holocene climate; Greenland;

    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
