  1. 1. Preparation and analysis of crowdsourced GPS bicycling data : a study of Skåne, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Matthew Corney; [2017]
    Keywords : geomatics; bike data project; map matching; bicycle data; crowdsourced cycle data; Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Despite the growing volume of available transportation data and the efforts of many cities to increase cycling levels, there remains a lack of data on where people cycle. The use of GPS trajectories have now been used in cycle studies for several years, and more recently large, crowdsourced datasets of GPS recorded cycle trips have become available and of interest to transportation and planning departments.

  2. 2. Biofuel plantations and isoprene emissions in Svea and Götaland

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Zahra Khais Shahid; [2017]
    Keywords : Isoprene; Geographical Information Systems GIS ; Short Rotation Coppice SRC ; Nitrogen dioxide NO2 ; biofuels; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Bioenergy as an alternative source for energy production and transportation has gained attention to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) as dedicated energy crops for heat and energy production have many demonstrated and proved climatic, biodiversity and environmental benefits, but concerns regarding the occurred Land Cover Change (LCC) from agriculture land into SRC have been raised.

  3. 3. Porous asphalt as a method for reducing urban storm water runoff in Lund, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Gea Hallen; [2017]
    Keywords : PCSWMM; urban flood modelling; porous asphalt; Physical geography and Ecosystem Science; Technology and Engineering; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Flooding is a major risk to the ever increasing urban population, posing a threat to human lives but also causing traffic interruptions, economic losses and pollution. Built up areas are prone to flooding due to the changes of previously pervious surfaces being covered by buildings and impervious pavements, such as asphalt. READ MORE

  4. 4. 3D geologic subsurface modeling within the Mackenzie Plain, Northwest Territories, Canada

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nadine Raska; [2017]
    Keywords : geology; 3D modeling; geography; geographic information systems; horizons; stratigraphic modeling; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Three-dimensional (3D) models are widely used within the geosciences to provide scientists with conceptual and quantitative models of the earth’s subsurface. As a result, 3D geologic modelling is a growing field, such that scientific research often cannot keep up with technical advancements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Study of spatial and temporal variation of atmospheric optical parameters and their relation with PM 2.5 concentration over Europe using GIS technologies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Panagiotis Symeonidis; [2017]
    Keywords : aerosols; air quality; satellite remote sensing; GIS; geography; Geographical Information Systems; particulate matter; Aerosol Optical Depth; MODIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine the use of remote sensing aerosol data as an estimator of ground level fine particulate matter concentration (PM 2.5). In order to examine this possible relation, daily MODIS Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) data were used, collected for an entire year. READ MORE
