  1. 1. Defining Nature: Who’s Talking? The concept of nature in legal cases with Rights of Nature in Ecuador : a frame/framing analysis of interpretations of nature, underlying factors and recommended actions

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Laura Elisabeth Wolf; [2019]
    Keywords : rights of nature; Ecuador; framing; frames; nature; Ecuadorian constitutional court; defining nature; social constructivism;

    Abstract : Since 2008, the Ecuadorian constitution grants intrinsic rights to nature. However, scholars highlight the stark contrast between the intended philosophy of rights of nature (RoN) and its implementation. The concept of “nature” in the constitution is left relatively undefined, hence open for interpretation of any actor in court. READ MORE

  2. 2. Secondary Steel Metallurgy Slag Design and MgO-C Refractory Implications : Theoretical and Practical Considerations

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Industriell miljö- och processteknik

    Author : Hellgren Simon; [2019]
    Keywords : MgO-C; CaO-SiO2-Al2O3-MgO; Slag Design; Refractory Wear;

    Abstract : MgO-C based refractory materials, often used in secondary steel making, are exposed to variouswear mechanisms in its application. The wear could be divided into oxidative, chemical andabrasive categories, all behaving differently and all being influenced by different factors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Implementation and characterization of Silicon detectors for studies on neutron-induced nuclear reactions

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Leo Lehtilä; [2019]
    Keywords : Silicon detector; Silicon telescope; Ultra-thin silicon detector; Energy resolution; Radioactive source; Am-241; Cf-252; Fission Fragments; Alpha Particles;

    Abstract : Energy resolution characteristics of silicon surface barrier detector signals amplified by different preamplifiers and spectroscopic amplifiers have been studied. The characterization has been done using alpha particles from an 241Am source and spontaneous fission fragments from two Cf sources. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inductively-Coupled Plasma Etching for Nanoimprint Si-masters

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Oskar Boström; [2019]
    Keywords : NIL; Semiconductor; EBL; SEM; ICP-RIE; Fluorine Etching; Physics; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the last decades, engineers have been pushing semiconductor technology towards fabricating ever smaller devices, and will eventually pass the lower limit of currently commonplace optical lithographic techniques. New techniques have been developed, such as nanoimprint lithography. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
