  1. 1. Single-Grain Zircon U-Pb Dating and Magnetic Susceptibility of Polish Loess to Determine Late Quaternary Dust Provenance and Paleoclimate

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Alexandra Engström Johansson; [2018]
    Keywords : dust provenance; Polish loess; paleoclimate; single-grain zircon U-Pb dating; magnetic susceptibility; härkomstområden för atmosfäriskt stoft; polsk lössjord; paleoklimat; U-Pb datering av zirkoner; magnetisk susceptibilitet;

    Abstract : Windblown mineral dust has accumulated into thick loess layers across the European continent. Loess deposits are valuable paleoclimatic archives as they record climate change on centennial- to glacialinterglacial timescales. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of the Temporal Variability of Positive Degree Day Factors

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

    Author : Hanna Rönnberg; [2016]
    Keywords : Positive Degree Day Surface Mass Balance; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The surface mass balance determines the growth or decay of an ice sheet, by taking the difference between accumulation and ablation. In this thesis snow and ice ablation is related to 2m-temperature through the positive degree day method. READ MORE

  3. 3. The East Asian Summer Monsoon : A comparison of present, Holocene and Eemian climate

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Holger Jacobson; [2014]
    Keywords : East Asian Summer Monsoon; Eemian; Holocene; Climate;

    Abstract : The East Asian Summer Monsoon (EASM) is a major component in Asian climate. It is largely driven by climatic factors such as humidity, solar insolation and temperature. For at least 50 years the EASM has been studied extensively by scientists regarding its current strength. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sedimentological and lithostratigraphical investigations in the gravel pit "Hinterste Mühle" at Neubrandenburg, northeastern Germany

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Joachim Albrecht; [1993]
    Keywords : Germany; Neubrandenburg; geography; geology; sedimentology; lithostratigraphy; Hinterste Mühle; gravel pit; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The investigated gravel-pit lies in the hinterland of the Pomeranian end-moraine zone. The structures in the sediment are strongly influenced during the glacier's recession. Especia11y the margins of the pit show strong deformation. Until now the sediments have been interpreted as subglacial tunnel deposits. READ MORE
