  1. 1. Spatio-temporal drought characteristics in the Limpopo basin from 1918 to 2018 - A case study based on analysis of the Standardized Precipitation Evaporation Index (SPEI)

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

    Författare :Sandra Domingos Sambo; [2021]
    Nyckelord :rdought; Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index; Limpopo River basin; Normalized difference vegetation index; Mann-Kendall Test; Correlation analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The identification of the characteristics of drought are of great importance in water resources planning and management. This study explored the characteristics of drought at Limpopo River Basin (LRB) from 1918 to 2018. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of the 2018 drought on mire productivity in Skogaryd - Evaluation of ground sensors, satellite data and meteorological data

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

    Författare :Ines Júlio Alfredo; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Sentinel 2; Vegetation Indices; Ground Sensors; Drought and Mire; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The drought is a complex meteorological phenomenon associated with low precipitation and low water saturation in atmosphere, soils and plants and can has a great effect on aboveground biomass and change the structure and function of the ecosystems. The droughts also are known to reduce the primary and secondary productivity of vegetation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. VIKTEN AV ATT UPPLEVA - Hur lokal upplevelse av torka påverkar vattenkonsumtionsbeteenden

    Kandidat-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för ekonomi och samhälle

    Författare :Malin Gillman; [2020-08-29]
    Nyckelord :”Construal level theory”; ”CLT”; ”Torka”; “Vattenkonsumtion”; “Upplevd torka”; ”Upplevt avstånd”; ”Psykologiskt avstånd”;

    Sammanfattning : ”Construal level theory”, CLT, is a multidisciplinary theory that builds upon the reasoning that perceived distance to events influence the level of abstraction one feels about the events. This, in turn, has the ability to affect people’s behaviour. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Towards a Green Techno-Economic Paradigm - The implications of EUs strategy to finance a sustainable growth on industry dynamics from a neo-Schumpeterian perspective

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Graduate School

    Författare :Eric Lindh; [2020-07-23]
    Nyckelord :Sustainability; sustainable development; sustainable finance; industry dynamics; techno-economic paradigms; innovation; disruption; creative destruction;

    Sammanfattning : The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more evident. Environmentalshocks in terms of massive forest fires, ferocious cyclones and droughts have become morefrequent leading to mass migrations and business disruptions. It has now been declared that wehave reached a tipping point and that further global warming is inevitable. LÄS MER
