  1. 1. The environment of conflict. A quantitative analysis of the link between water scarcity, non-state conflict and the quality of government in Africa

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Monica Berenji; [2021-02-12]
    Keywords : Freshwater resources; water scarcity; non-state conflict; impartiality; corruption;

    Abstract : Environmental security has been diligently examined in previous research on both subnational and multinational levels and have not found consensus on the contributing factors for why and how environmental conflict occurs. This thesis aims to contribute to this strand of research, more specifically asking if water scarcities effect the number of non- state conflicts in Africa, depending on the quality of governments.

  2. 2. Statistical analysis of firefighting and damage caused by fire in mid-rise timber-framed residential buildings compared to other construction types

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Thomas Berg; [2021]
    Keywords : Statistical analysis; timber-framed; residential; firefighting; damage caused by fire; PRONTO; NFID; linear regression; summary statistics; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The contribution of greenhouse gas emissions in the production of construction materials has sparked a new interest and recent changes in building regulations regarding the use of renewables like wood as the main component in load-bearing elements. Recent regulation changes focus on allowing taller timber structures which bides the question of how to adequately maintain an acceptable level of fire protection considering the characteristically flammable properties of wood-based products.

  3. 3. European Integration: Is it on track? A study of railway prices.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Henning Stenbeck; Erik Jacobsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Ramsey pricing; Transaction cost theory; European integration; Interstate travel; Railway prices; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to investigate if there is a monetary cost associated with interstate travel by rail within the European Union and how this differs from intrastate railway travel in the Union. The paper makes use of two economic theories, Transaction cost theory and Ramsey pricing, to help explain the effect we find. READ MORE

  4. 4. Responses in river water quality during summers with extreme weather periods in Europe

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Felicia Claeson; [2021]
    Keywords : water quality; rivers; Europe; extremeweather periods; drought; heatwave; floods; dissolved oxygen; nitrate; chlorophyll-a; phosphate; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Europe has experienced several climate extremes during the past decades. These extreme events have increased in number and intensity and are projected to further intensify. Previous studies show that heatwaves, drought, and flood can have an impact on water quality in several ways. READ MORE

  5. 5. Estimating active layer thickness at the high Arctic study site Zackenberg from remotely sensed ground subsidence

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lotte Wendt; [2021]
    Keywords : active layer thickness; DInSAR; subsidence; permafrost; Zackenberg; CALM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The active layer thickness (ALT) is an indicator of permafrost thaw, which potentially leads to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases under global warming, and thus could further amplify climate change. The thaw depth of the active layer also governs seasonal surface deformation, caused by the volume change between ice to water, which poses risks for slope stability and infrastructure foundations.
