  1. 1. Safeguarding a Safeguard: Assessing the Status of Global Ex-Situ Crop Conservation and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault’s Role in its Protection

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Författare :Christopher Keegan; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Svalbard Global Seed Vault; Genebanks; Genetic Resources; Genetic Erosion; Passport Data Completeness; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The Svalbard Seed Vault serves as a backup against accidental loss of genetic crop diversity within the existing global conservation system. Addressing this objective, this thesis repeats the 2013 assessment of the Seed Vault’s completeness relative to the global conservation system as performed by Westengen et al (2013, 1). LÄS MER

  2. 2. A Statistical Overview of the Spatial Atmospheric Variability Over Isfjorden, Svalbard

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Författare :Stenlund Agnes; [2022]
    Nyckelord :meteorologi; atmosfärsvetenskap; mikroklimat;

    Sammanfattning : The atmospheric spatial variability over Isfjorden, Svalbard, was investigated through statistical data analysis. The data used in the thesis was measured by mobile weather stations installed on three ships crossing the fjord, and two stationary weather stations close to the shoreline, during the autumn of 2021 and spring to autumn 2022.

  3. 3. Comparison of temperature variability and trends in Svalbard and Franz Joseph Land

    Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå, Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Författare :Johanna Renberg; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Arctic warming; Arctic Amplification; Franz Joseph Land climate; Svalbard climate; linear regression;

    Sammanfattning : Arctic warming is assumed to be four times the global warming. A published study by Ivanov et al. (2019) shows that the annual average temperature of Franz Joseph Land (the world’s northernmost island region, a Russian territory) has increased by 5.2 °C from 2000-2017. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Monitoring of heat exchanges in thesnowpack of Foxfonna glacier, Spitzbergen,Svalbard.

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Thibault Desjonquères; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Glaciers; Glaciology; Svalbard; Geophysics; Superimposed Ice; Foxfonna; Geology.; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : The processes of meltwater storage in firn and the impact of refreezing on firn-coveredglaciers have been investigated on the Greenland ice-sheet. On Svalbard, climate changepromotes the disappearance of firn on glaciers. LÄS MER
