    Author : Mégane Capel; [2019]
    Keywords : Holocene; Lake-Water TOC; climate; lake sediment; vegetation;

    Abstract : Varved lake sediments were used to provide information on how a landscape is affected by disturbances of different scales, from global (i.e. climatic) to local (i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plant phenology and climate change : possible effect on the onset of various wild plant species first flowering day in the UK

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nigel Fox; [2019]
    Keywords : geography; GIS; plants; phenology; climate change; global warming; FFD; IPCC; Bluebell; Garlic mustard; Coltsfoot; Cuckooflower; United Kingdom; Woodland Trust; UK; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The IPCC states that the planet is significantly warming due to effects of climate change. This warming effect has consequences for phenological events. Many species cannot track rapid climate change, resulting in phenological mismatches. This study looks at an extreme weather event and the longer-term effects of climate change. READ MORE

  3. 3. Growth and timber quality evaluation of 33 European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) provenances from a site in Southern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : John Bergkvist; [2019]
    Keywords : trial; climate change; adaptation; growth; survival; Sweden;

    Abstract : This study aims to shed more light on the differences in growth and timber quality characteristics between European beech provenances at its northern distribution margin. Data was collected from a provenance trial established in 1998 in southern Sweden to determine the growth and development of 33 provenances of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thinning response to weather variations in Norway spruce

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Erika Alm; [2019]
    Keywords : thinning; climate change; dendrochronology;

    Abstract : Climate change is likely to affect the prerequisites for forest management. Therefore, it is imperative to investigate how silviculture practices can be adjusted to changing conditions. Norway spruce (Picea abies) is one of the most common species in the Swedish forests, with high economic and ecological values. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulation of Leachate Generation from a Waste Rock Dump in Kiruna Using HYDRUS-1D

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Aryani Atmosudirdjo; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydrus-1D; matrix flow; leachate; unsaturated flow; waste rock dump;

    Abstract : The percolation of water through waste rock dumps at mine sites can lead to the production of a leachate with high concentrations of dissolved metals, sulfate and nitrogen compounds. It is important to understand how water flows in waste rock dumps in order to predict the environmental impact of this leachate on recipients. READ MORE
