  1. 1. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

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

    Författare :Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Reindeer induced changes in vegetation composition and plant traits on a tundra-forest border

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

    Författare :Femke Pijcke; [2019]
    Nyckelord :physical geography; ecosystem analysis; plant functional traits; nutrient allocation; grazing; reindeer; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) are the most common large herbivores in the arctic. With a habitat spreading over the entire circumpolar region, they can have a substantial effect on plant species composition and ecosystem processes and functions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Land cover changes in Southern Sweden from the mid-Holocene to present day: insights for ecosystem service assessments

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

    Författare :Robert O'Dwyer; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Götaland; Landscape Reconstruction Algorithm; Fossil Pollen; Ecosystem Services; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change and human impact play a huge role in the sustainability and development of ecosystems and the services they offer to societies over temporal and spatial scales. Fossil pollen-based estimates provide unique information on past land cover change, but to date there are not many methods able to create spatially continuous maps and have a fine scale of land cover changes inferred from pollen information.

  4. 4. Conceptualizing green water within the planetary boundary for freshwater use

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

    Författare :Arne Tobian; [2019]
    Nyckelord :green water; planetary boundaries; land use modelling; physical geography; ecosystem analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Anthropogenic land-use covers a constantly increasing fraction of the terrestrial surface area. By employing a dynamic global vegetation model, human-induced changes in the terrestrial water balance as compared to an undisturbed scenario were simulated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Smarter geovisualization tools : a user approach

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

    Författare :Frida Ulfves; [2019]
    Nyckelord :physical geography and ecosystem analysis; geography; geovisualizations; sense of place; user approach; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Geovisualization tools are continuously becoming more complex. These tools can present vivid and highly accurate representations of the real world. Simultaneously, spatial data is becoming incredibly detailed and the possibilities of interacting with the geovisualization tools are plentiful. Geovisualization tools are indeed powerful. LÄS MER
