  2. 2. Assessment of forcing mechanisms on net community production and dissolved inorganic carbon dynamics in the Southern Ocean using glider data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Julia Schütt; [2017]
    Keywords : net community production; geography; physical geography; dissolved inorganic carbon; Southern Ocean; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : In the Subantarctic Zone of the Southern Ocean, a combination of physical forcings, chemical solubility and biological fixation is controlling the carbon uptake and thus the role the Southern Ocean is playing in the remediation of global climate change. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the mechanisms controlling oceanic carbon budgets and to quantify biological uptake rates to make reliable future climate predictions. READ MORE

  3. 3. In-line Phase-contrast Tomography using Betatron X-rays Produced by a Laser-Plasma Accelerator

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Kristoffer Svendsen; [2017]
    Keywords : source size; x-ray; in-line; phase-contrast; phase contrast; LWFA; laser wakefield acceleration; tomography; diffraction; diffraction simulation; laser-plasma acceleration; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : X-ray phase-contrast imaging is a powerful technique that allows great resolving power for low absorbing samples, such as biological tissue. This method relies on measuring the phase shift induced by the sample instead of the absorption traditional radiography relies on. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multi-class Supervised Classification Techniques for High-dimensional Data: Applications to Vehicle Maintenance at Scania

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Daniel Berlin; [2017]
    Keywords : Statistical learning; Machine learning; Neural networks; Deep learning; Supervised;

    Abstract : In vehicle repairs, many times locating the cause of error could turn out more time consuming than the reparation itself. Hence a systematic way to accurately predict a fault causing part would constitute a valuable tool especially for errors difficult to diagnose. READ MORE
