  1. 1. ESTIMATION OF RADIATION EXPOSURE FROM NATURALLY OCCURRING RADIONUCLIDES IN FOOD AND FOODSTUFF

    University essay from

    Author : Ida Bengtsson; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Naturally occurring radionuclides; committed effective dose from ingested radionuclides; Biokinetic models;

    Abstract : Purpose: The main purpose of this study was to provide an estimation of the committed effective dose received by the Swedish population from naturally occurring radionuclides (NORM) in the diet. This study was also aiming to investigate the impact on the committed effective dose due to the new developments in the biokinetic model for Po 210 . READ MORE

  2. 2. Perception accuracy and user acceptance of legend designs for opacity data mapping in GIS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Jonas Tillman; [2022]
    Keywords : GIS; Data Visualisation; Legends; Opacity; Transparency; Visual Data Encoding; Perception; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : In a GIS system, the need to encode geospatial data without standardized cartographic representations, such as population data, weather information, etc., on top of a map is common. This can be done with a layer on top of a base map, with the effect that the base map is partially or fully hidden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Urban Rainwater Harvesting in the city of Madrid applying GIS based MCDA expert tools

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Silvia Börjesson Ballesteros; [2022]
    Keywords : Rainwater Harvesting Systems; Pond Harvesting Systems; Nature-based facilities; Climate Change Adaptation; MCDA; ArcGIS; Madrid; Spain; Sustainable water management solutions; Regnvattenuppsamlingssystem; naturbaserade anläggningar; klimatanpassning; urban resiliens; MCDA; ArcGIS; Madrid; Spanien; lösningar för hållbar vattenhantering;

    Abstract : Due to climate change, water resources’ scarcity and distribution variability have generated a growing interest in sustainable water management in recent years. In addition, the growing interest in implementing nature-based solutions for urban resilience leads to the development of decentralized water supply systems such as rainwater harvesting systems (RWHS) as a complementary resource to conventional centralized water supply systems.

  4. 4. Ecological Representativity of Marine Protected Areas along the Swedish West Coast : evaluating the effectiveness of the existing network and identifying expansion opportunities in the Skagerrak

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Aquatic Resources

    Author : Kimberly Arfwedson; [2021]
    Keywords : ecological representativity; ecological coherence; species richness; marine protected areas; Marxan; no-take zones;

    Abstract : Marine protected areas (MPAs) are recognised worldwide as an important tool to combat biodiversity loss. The European union (EU) has recently adopted a new strategy aiming at protecting at least 30% of Europe’s marine environment and inferring strict protection for one third of the protected area.
