  1. 1. Reaching Those ‘Out-of-Reach’: An Explorative Case-Study of Fire Prevention in Vulnerable Urban Communities within Copenhagen.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI)

    Author : Aron Fransson; [2021]
    Keywords : Fire Prevention; Fire Rescue Services; Risk Communication; Fire Governance; Urban Vulnerable Communities; Community Risk Reduction; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Considering the nature of vulnerability to fires and at-risk groups, the issue is arguably a social problem where spatial analysis has allowed for a greater context, beyond the individual, to be analyzed. Furthermore, reports from fire rescue services of local safety concerns and the convergence of interest between different stakeholders has made communities disposition to fire safety increasingly relevant.

  2. 2. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Abstract : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

  3. 3. A lynx in a sheep's pasture : environmental factors and hunting affecting lynx depredation on domestic sheep in Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Marc Velling; [2021]
    Keywords : Lynx lynx; Scandinavia; conservation; human-wildlife conflict; depredation; spatial analysis; survival analysis; protective hunting; carnivore; lethal control;

    Abstract : Large predators have made a return in Europe in the past decades. In Scandinavia, the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) has expanded its distribution further south and recolonized past areas. Due to the recolonization, lynx management has become part of the public discourse in Sweden. One factor of this discourse is depredation on domestic sheep. READ MORE

  5. 5. High frequency rainfall data disaggregation with a random cascade model : Identifying regional differences in hyetographs in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Louis Rulewski Stenberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Random cascade model; disaggregation; high frequency; rainfall data; hyetograph; spatial transferability; regional differences; Swedish climate; clustering; Slumpmässig kaskadmodell; disaggregering; högfrekvens; regndata; hyetograf; rumslig överförbarhet; regionala skillnader; Sveriges klimat; klustring;

    Abstract : The field of urban hydrology is in need of high temporal resolution data series in order to effectively model and analyse existing and future trends in extreme precipitation. When high resolution data sets are, for any number of reasons, not available for a given location, the technique of disaggregation using a random cascade model can be applied. READ MORE
