  2. 2. Conditioned atria in the built environment - A possible solution for unsustainable urbanization and climate change in Nordic climates?

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för ekoteknik- och hållbart byggande

    Author : Lucas Cupello de Vasconcellos; [2020]
    Keywords : Conditioned atrium; built environment; final energy consumption; energy efficiency; indoor gardens; green spaces; Internationella Engelska Skolan Östersund; International English School Östersund; temperate climates; Nordic climates; weather damage; refurbishment; repair; impact; environmental impact;

    Abstract : The aim of the research is to explore the differences in final energy consumption and environmental impact of the construction materials related to the atrium alternative and a business-as-usual and evaluate how to improve thermal properties of old buildings that require renovations to fit thermal efficiency standards and comfort in operational conditions while reducing the overall impact of the projects. Results show that for the low-rise atrium most of the parameters related to the final energy demands and environmental impacts of the atrium construction materials are proportional and linear to the increase of the glazing area size.

  3. 3. Genotyping ethylene production genes Md-ACS1 and Md-ACO1 for markerassisted selection in apple

    University essay from SLU/Department of Plant Breeding (from 130101)

    Author : Johan Lundmark; [2019]
    Keywords : malus domestica; ripening; fruit firmness; shelf-life; storage; nordic; Baltic;

    Abstract : Texture, firmness and storability are among the most important traits for fruit quality in apple. Consumers are increasingly demanding apples with a “crispy texture”, and the market is offering a premium for a longer shelf life, which has as a result generated an increased interest from plant breeders to meet these demands.
