  1. 1. Assessing evolution of ice caps in Suðurland, Iceland, in years 1986 - 2014, using multispectral satellite imagery

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

    Författare :Alicja Miodonska; [2019]
    Nyckelord :remote sensing; multispectral satellite imagery; Landsat; Iceland; glaciers; ice caps; Geography; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The study focuses on the application of multispectral satellite imageries in glaciological studies. It aims to assess how the Icelandic glaciers have evolved over the last decades (from the 1980s to 2014). The study area covers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull ice caps located in Suðurland, Iceland. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Processes of lateral moraine formation at a debris-covered glacier, Suldenferner (Vedretta di Solda), Italy

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Författare :Monika Rabanser; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Lateral moraines; Moraine genesis; Moraine stability; Debris-covered glaciers; Clast shape; Alps; Sedimentology; Glacier fluctuations; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Lateral moraines are key features of glacial landscapes in high-alpine mountain areas. Research on lateral moraine formation is mostly limited to clean-ice glaciers; lateral moraine formation at the margins of debris-covered glaciers is currently poorly understood in an Alpine and sedimentological context.

  3. 3. Climate Change and Precipitation Variability Influence on the Greenland Ice Sheet

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

    Författare :Jennie Olsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Physics; Ice Sheet; Surface Mass Balance; SMB; Representative Concentration Pathways; RCP; Climate Change; Greenland; Precipitation; Precipitation Variability; Glaciers; Glacier; Meteorology; Greenhouse Effect; Greenhouse Gas; Future Climate; Climate; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : Climate changes have a large impact on precipitation patterns and precipitation variability change. With this in mind, precipitation over Greenland is studied. This is done for present day precipitation model data from 1991-2010 compared to future model simulations of precipitation for 2081-2100. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Ice Sheet Modeling: Accuracy of First-Order Stokes Model with Basal Sliding

    Magister-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Eskil Jonsson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Ice sheet modelling; First-Order Stokes model; basal sliding; Stokes equations;

    Sammanfattning : Some climate models are still lacking features such as dynamical modelling of ice sheets due to their computational cost which results in poor accuracy and estimates of e.g. sea level rise. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Atmospheric soot particle transformation from urban to rural

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

    Författare :Fredrik Johansson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Aerosol; soot; atmosphere; Physics and Astronomy; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The main objective of this work was to investigate if there is a contribution of aerosol from the urban region of Copenhagen at the rural station Vavihill. This was done by analyzing measurement data between 1st of January and the 28th of February 2013 measured with a Dierential Mobility Particle Sizer (DMPS), Soot Particle Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (SP-AMS), a Cloud Condensation Nuclei Counter (CCNC) and a NOx-analyzer.
