  1. 11. Periglacial and glacial landform mapping in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frondal of the Andes (Argentina).

    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Författare :Eirini Makopoulou; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Geomorphological map; thermokarst lakes; glaciers; GIS; Argentinian Andes; spatial and temporal analysis;

    Sammanfattning : The semi-arid and arid Andes of South America are characterized by large areas with glacial and periglacial environments. This study focusses on the distribution of glacial and periglacial landforms in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frontal, Argentina. LÄS MER

  2. 12. Central Asian ice-marginal moraines of the global last glacial maximum : An analysis of topographic features affecting the glaciation pattern in the Tian Shan and Altai mountains

    Kandidat-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Författare :Sonja Sandström; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Altaimountains; GeographicInformation System; Tian Shan mountains; water resources; marginal moraine; MIS 2; paleoglaciology;

    Sammanfattning : Glacial runoff from the Tian Shan and Altai Mountains is an important water resource, especially for people living in the arid areas of Central Asia. Measured water volumes from glaciers have decreased, and glacier area have shrunk with 50-90% since the Little Ice Age. LÄS MER

  3. 13. Drones in Arctic Environments: Snow Change Tracking Aid using Sensor Fusion

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Mekatronik; KTH/Mekatronik

    Författare :Daniela Attalla; Alexandra Tang; [2018]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : The Arctic is subject to rapid climate changes that canbe difficult to track. This thesis aims to provide a user case in which researchers in the Arctic benefit from the incorporation of drones in their snow ablation research. This thesis presents a way to measure ablation stakes with the help of a sensor fusion system mounted on a drone. LÄS MER

  4. 14. Climate Blame Below The Glaciers - Challenges to Climate Justice in Peruvian Mountains and German Courts

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Humanekologi

    Författare :Line Skovlund Larsen; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Climate Blame; Climate Justice; Perceptions of Climate Change Causes; Climate Liability; Climate Litigation; Individual Guilt; Collective Responsibility; Diffuse Responsibility; Water Scarcity; Glacial Lake Outburst Flood; The Global South; The Andes; RWE; Huaraz; Peru; Social Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates climate blame amongst a local population in the Northern Andes, Peru, and relates it to arguments on climate liability in German courtrooms. It does so on the backdrop of a climate lawsuit, which in 2017 was accepted by the Higher Regional Court in Hamm, Germany, filed by a Peruvian farmer against a German coal- and electricity company.

  5. 15. Characterization of Wind Channeling Around Longyearbyen, Svalbard

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

    Författare :Michael Lonardi; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Longyeardalen; wind channeling; snow transport;

    Sammanfattning : Due to climate change and arctic amplification, the avalanche activity is expected to increase at higher latitudes (Hall et al., 1994). The arctic settlement of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, situated inside the valley Longyeardalen, is yearly threatened by avalanche activity (Eckerstorfer & Christiansen, 2011a). LÄS MER
