  1. 1. Mapping Connectivity in the Swedish Agricultural Landscape

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för ekoteknik och hållbart byggande

    Author : William Franzén; [2020]
    Keywords : ; GIS; Circuitscape; Structural Connectivity; Agriculture; Landscape; Perennialization; Land use;

    Abstract : The changes that Swedish agriculture has undergone during the 20th century has resulted in strongly increased productivity, but at the cost of more intensive environmental impacts. One of these is loss of biodiversity, which is driven by, e.g., usage of pesticides and loss and fragmentation of habitats. READ MORE

  2. 2. Land cover changes in Southern Sweden from the mid-Holocene to present day: insights for ecosystem service assessments

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Robert O'Dwyer; [2019]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Götaland; Landscape Reconstruction Algorithm; Fossil Pollen; Ecosystem Services; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Climate change and human impact play a huge role in the sustainability and development of ecosystems and the services they offer to societies over temporal and spatial scales. Fossil pollen-based estimates provide unique information on past land cover change, but to date there are not many methods able to create spatially continuous maps and have a fine scale of land cover changes inferred from pollen information.

  3. 3. Anthropogenic changes in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Mikaela Gomez; [2019]
    Keywords : land cover change; protected areas; encroachment; habitat fragmentation; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1950s the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) has experienced several changes in land use policy. In the early 1990s the NCA’s policy was changed for the last time and the area became considered an experimental multiple land use system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Automatic Detection of Low Passability Terrain Features in the Scandinavian Mountains

    University essay from KTH/Geodesi och satellitpositionering

    Author : Fredrik Ahnlén; [2019]
    Keywords : Classification; Fuzzy Logic; Fuzzy Inference System; Automatic Mapping; Terrain Features; Land Cover Mapping; Cartography; Shrub; Mire; Stony Ground; Klassificering; Fuzzy Logic; Fuzzy Inference System; Automatisk Kartering; Terrängföremål; Marktäcke; Kartografi; Videsnår; Sankmark; Stenig Mark;

    Abstract : During recent years, much focus have been put on replacing time consuming manual mappingand classification tasks with automatic methods, having minimal human interaction. Now it ispossible to quickly classify land cover and terrain features covering large areas to a digital formatand with a high accuracy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Paleoglaciological study of the Ahlmannryggen, Borgmassivet and Kirwanveggen nunatak ranges, Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica, using WorldView imagery

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Taisiya Dymova; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Paleoglaciological reconstructions based on glacial geological and geomorphological traces are used to test and constrain numerical models of ice sheet extent and dynamics. MAGIC-DML (“Mapping, Measuring and Modelling Antarctic Geomorphology and Ice Change in Dronning Maud Land”) project is trying to reconstruct the timing and pattern of ice surface elevation changes since the mid-Pliocene across western Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica.
