  1. 1. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.

  2. 2. Assessing blockchain technology for Transport Data Logger

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Björn Johansson; [2018]
    Keywords : blockchain; transport data logger; hyperledger; hyperledger fabric; byzantine fault tolerance; bft; supply chain; transport chain; permissioned; permissionless; documental truth; historical truth; immutability; security; log data; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A proof of concept permissioned blockchain system that holds data from the Transport Data Logger, TDL, was developed. Transport chain actors who hand off TDL-equipped goods between one another use the TDL app to upload a digital handoff containing their identities and log data from and signed by the TDL to a Hyperledger Fabric blockchain network.

  3. 3. Blockchain consensus mechanisms : the case of natural disasters

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för systemteknik

    Author : Okan Arabaci; [2018]
    Keywords : Blockchain; consensus; proof of work; medical industry; natural disaster; resilience;

    Abstract : Blockchain is described as a trustworthy distributed service for parties that do not fully trust each other. It enables business transactions to be handled without a third party or central governance. For this distributed and concurrent communication to work, a consensus mechanism needs to be implemented into the blockchain protocol. READ MORE
