    Abstract : Scholars and civil society organizations have over the last decade referred to large-scale carbon sequestration TPPs as "carbon colonialism" (Carmody and Taylor, 2016) as well as a "development by dispossession" dressed in new clothing behind words such as climate change mitigation and development (Kröger, 2012). Concerns have been raised that the trade-offs from the implementation of industrial tree plantations (ITPs) may result in conflicting effects on countries' overall development (The Oakland Institute, 2019; Osborne, 2015; Nel & Hill, 2013).

    Abstract : Renewable energy sources are a hot topic, both when it comes to climate change and the constant increase in demand of electricity due to population growth and a more electrified society. One such energy source is wave energy - an energy source with great potential but still relatively new with the need for further development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Measuring water current speed and direction of a Long Term Underwater Sensor (LoTUS) using tilt and roll compensation

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Marcus Lindkvist; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Climate change brings upon melting of the Arctic ice and rising sea levels, which can be further understood by the collection of data underneath the Arctic ice caps. A Long Term Underwater Sensor (LoTUS) has therefore been proposed to be deployed under the ice caps for collection of water current speed and direction, along with temperature readings. READ MORE
