  1. 1. Urban infrastructure inundation risk from permanent sea-level rise scenarios in London (UK), Bangkok (Thailand) and Mumbai (India): A comparative analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shawn Pace; [2021]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; Climate Change; Sea-Level Rise; Urban Infrastructure; DEM; London; Mumbai; Bangkok; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Due to anthropogenically created climate change, global cities are facing inundation by rising sea levels. This study aimed to fill knowledge gaps in understanding the exposure of urban infrastructure such as roads, railways, buildings and parks to sea-level rise (SLR) scenarios, and how this would affect local populations.

  2. 2. Wave Damping by Vegetation at Bunkeflo Salt Meadows - Applying an empirical model based on plant biomass

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Charlie van Houwelingen; Timothy Ley; [2021]
    Keywords : Coastal protection; nature-based solutions; salt marshes; salt meadows; sea level rise; wave damping; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Future sea level rise due to climate change increases the risk of coastal flooding and thus necessitates the building of dikes and other protective structures. Coastal vegetation can reduce the impact of waves on such structures by dissipating wave energy and hence reduce incoming wave heights. READ MORE

  3. 3. Climate change adaptation and urban development: a genealogy of flood risk management in Glasgow

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Leopold Salzenstein; Jenny Åkeson; [2021]
    Keywords : Adaptation; Climate urbanism; Clyde; Complexity; Floods; Foucault; Genealogy; Glasgow; Green gentrification; Maladaptation; Neoliberalism; Resilience; Risk; Scotland; General Works;

    Abstract : As cities increasingly implement climate change adaptation (CCA) projects, it is important to assess the potential long-term consequences of urban climate adaptation on socio-economic inequalities. As CCA is still in its infancy, observing long-term impact can be challenging. READ MORE

  4. 4. Refuge from Climate Change? : The Principle of Non-Refoulement under the ICCPR and the ECHR in the Context of Climate Change

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Juridiska institutionen

    Author : Joel Herrault; [2021]
    Keywords : non-refoulement; climate refugees; climate change; human rights law; ECHR article 3; ECtHR; ICCPR articles 6 and 7; United Nations Human Rights Committee; slow onset processes; climate change effects; klimatflyktingar; non-refoulement; EKMR artikel 3; ICCPR artikel 6 och 7;

    Abstract : In the early 1990s the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted that the gravest effects of climate change could be on human migration, as millions would be displaced by coastal erosion, flooding, and drought. Today, this is considered a reality that is coming ever closer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Extreme value modeling of wind effect on dune erosion on the Coast of ̈Angelholm

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Lionel Arpin-Pont; [2020]
    Keywords : Erosion; Wind speed; Extreme value theory; Block maxima; Peaks over threshold; Copula; Husler-Reiss; Dependence function.; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The movement of the coast line, due to erosion in one direction or aggregation in theother is a natural process as waves, wind as well as the geological nature of the coast itselfare affecting it. Sand dunes are the main protection coasts have at their disposal againstfloods during storm surges or from more passive but long range rainfalls. READ MORE
