  2. 2. Geometric comparison of 3D city models for daylight simulations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Johannes Lande Nyborg; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; 3D city model; 3D building models; daylight access; daylight simulations; obstruction angle; free and open-source software; sustainable urban development; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : As cities keep densifying, essential resources such as daylight access become increasingly restricted. Therefore, prioritizing energy efficiency and enhancing the energy performance of our buildings is required for obtaining a sustainable urban environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. The land carbon sink of Lithuanian forests in the light of climate change: A model approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Patricija Marijauskaite; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Physical geography; Ecosystem analysis; Ecosystem modelling; LPJ-GUESS; Climate change; Forest sequestration; Land carbon sink; Norway spruce; Scot s pine; Silver birch; monoculture; silviculture; NPP; NBP; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forests form the backbone of the European terrestrial carbon sink (State Forest Service & Ministry of Environment, 2018). As the European Union (EU) strives to become climate neutral by 2050, forests are accounted for the natural carbon absorption mechanism (European Commission, n.d.). READ MORE

  4. 4. Mapping wetlands in Sweden using multi-source satellite data and random forest algorithm

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Salvador Hernandez Malave; [2022]
    Keywords : physical geography and ecosystem analysis; multi-temporal; Google Earth Engine; machine learning; classification; country-wide; geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Wetlands are valuable ecosystems, and assets for human life, that must be regularly monitored, starting with accurately mapping their location and extent. However, an updated national inventory of wetlands is needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Snow-graupel collisions in clouds: a newly derived formulation for breakup of single crystals

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Victor Craig van der Brug; [2022]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Secondary Ice Production; Ice Cloud Number Concentration; Cloud Ice; Ice-Ice Collisions; Snow Crystal; Atmospheric Science Biogeochemical Cycles; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The observed and well-known discrepancy between concentrations of ice nucleating particles in the environment and the concentrations of ice particles in clouds show that there are additional ‘secondary’ processes enhancing the concentrations of ice particles. In present-day modelling of weather and climate, such processes are mostly overlooked and thus a cause for uncertainty. READ MORE
