    Författare :Elin Backström; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Reforestation; Carbon storage; Albedo; Radiative forcing; Scania; Climate mitigation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Using reforestation for climate change mitigation is complex due to the multiple impacts forest has on climate. This study analyses the effectiveness in using reforestation on pasture in Scania (south Sweden) as a tool for climate mitigation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Seniors accessibility to primary health care centers using the public transport system in Uppsala

    Kandidat-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Författare :Emma Öberg; [2019]
    Nyckelord :accessibility; public transport; primary health care; seniors; GIS;

    Sammanfattning : Since many seniors are non-car holders, they are often dependent of the public transport system in reaching vital services, such as primary health care centers. Having spatial accessibility to primary health care centers can be of importance not only for preventing fatal outcomes of chronic diseases, but also for the utilization of these services. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Property Crime in The City and County of San Francisco 2016 - 2017 : Applying GIS to Crime Pattern Theory

    Magister-uppsats, Umeå universitet/Institutionen för geografi

    Författare :Emma Edholm; [2019]
    Nyckelord :GIS; crime pattern theory; environmental criminology; hot spots of crime;

    Sammanfattning : This study’s aim is to reveal statistically significant hot spots and temporal patterns of property crime in the City and County of San Francisco and to also analyse the relationship between property crimes and the environment in which these crimes occur by using Geographic Information System (GIS). Crime pattern theory was used as the framework for the analysis of environmental surroundings and occurrence of crime. LÄS MER
