  1. 1. Assessment of Urban Sprawl in Mowe/Ibafo Axis of Ogun State using GIS Capabilities

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Haruna Jimoh; [2020]
    Keywords : GIS; Urban sprawl; expansion; assessment; Shannon’s entropy; Mowe Ibafo; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Urban Sprawl is one of the challenges to urban development in many nations. Different aspects of the phenomenon have been researched with a view to providing solutions to myriad of ills attributed to it. For any meaningful intervention, however, assessment of development to ascertain sprawl is essential. READ MORE

  2. 2. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing evolution of ice caps in Suðurland, Iceland, in years 1986 - 2014, using multispectral satellite imagery

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Alicja Miodonska; [2019]
    Keywords : remote sensing; multispectral satellite imagery; Landsat; Iceland; glaciers; ice caps; Geography; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The study focuses on the application of multispectral satellite imageries in glaciological studies. It aims to assess how the Icelandic glaciers have evolved over the last decades (from the 1980s to 2014). The study area covers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull ice caps located in Suðurland, Iceland. READ MORE

  4. 4. Periglacial and glacial landform mapping in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frondal of the Andes (Argentina).

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Eirini Makopoulou; [2018]
    Keywords : Geomorphological map; thermokarst lakes; glaciers; GIS; Argentinian Andes; spatial and temporal analysis;

    Abstract : The semi-arid and arid Andes of South America are characterized by large areas with glacial and periglacial environments. This study focusses on the distribution of glacial and periglacial landforms in the Las Veguitas catchment, Cordillera Frontal, Argentina. 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 : Elena Serra; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

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