  1. 1. Trees as heat stress mitigators. The frequency of heat and cold stress in a redevelopment area in Borås, Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Simon Wiklund Wagersten; [2023-06-22]
    Nyckelord :Cold stress; heat stress; SOLWEIG; thermal comfort; TreePlanter;

    Sammanfattning : As future climate is predicted to generate higher temperatures as well as more frequent extreme weather scenarios, it is essential to plan to mitigate the effects of climate change. In an attempt to mitigate one effect of climate change, this master’s thesis examines both the heat and cold stress at the area Pulsen in Borås Stad, both as the conditions are today, and after the implementation of a new detail plan.

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Författare :Ivan Ruzic; [2023-06-21]
    Nyckelord :heat wave; urban trees; NDVI; remote sensing;

    Sammanfattning : Urban vegetation plays a crucial role in diverse urban microclimates. The numerous ecosystem services provided by vegetation, particularly trees, ensure greater quality of life and thermal comfort regulation. Yet, not all trees are immune to extreme weather events, such as droughts and heat waves, especially in cities. LÄS MER

  3. 3. How do rainfall patterns change microbial induced carbon dynamics in soil?

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi; Lunds universitet/Bioteknik

    Författare :Maria João Silva; [2023]
    Nyckelord :drying and rewetting; bacterial growth; fungal growth; annual crops; perennial crops; soil depth; climate change; biotechnology; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is changing the precipitation patterns around the globe, leading to more extreme weather events like severe drought and heavy rainfalls. These events are intrinsically related to soil moisture fluctuations, which strongly modulates carbon fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Exploring patterns in risk factors for bark beetle attack during outbreaks triggered by drought stress with harvester data on attacked trees: A case study in Southeastern Sweden

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

    Författare :Nikolaos Kouskoulis; [2023]
    Nyckelord :Geography; GIS; Geographic Information Science; Forest ecosystems; Bark beetle outbreak; Southeastern Sweden; Predisposing factors; Triggering factors; Drought stress; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Raising temperatures and climate variability have intensified extreme weather events worldwide. These extremes can enhance and trigger possible pest outbreaks. Bark beetle attacks have become a major concern in regions with extensive spruce forest areas. Southeastern Sweden has faced repeated outbreaks resulting in widespread tree loss. LÄS MER
