  1. 1. A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Dennis Lindell Schettini; [2019]
    Keywords : GIS; homicide; deprivation; hot spot; generalized regression; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017 Homicide crimes are rare events depending on numerous factors and tend to be distributed differently based on geographic location. The use of spatial analysis is substantively important for detecting different predictors in varying geographic areas and for the diffusion process of homicide crimes. READ MORE

  2. 2. ALTO Timing Calibration : Calibration of the ALTO detector array based on cosmic-ray simulations

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för fysik och elektroteknik (IFE)

    Author : Sotirios-Ilias Tsivras; [2019]
    Keywords : ALTO; Cosmic-Rays; Water Cherenkov Detector; Python;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a timing calibration method for the detector array of the ALTO experiment. ALTO is a project currently at the prototype phase that aims to build a gamma-ray astronomical observatory at high-altitude in the Southern hemisphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Snow insulation effects across the Arctic : evaluating a revised snow module in LPJ-GUESS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Alexandra Pongrácz; [2019]
    Keywords : active layer depth; Arctic; LPJ-GUESS; snow; soil temperature; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The effect of future changes in temperature and precipitation patterns on arctic ecosystem functioning is often assessed using state-of-the-art ecosystem models. Many models however lack detailed representation of wintertime processes, as pointed out by recent studies (Wang et al. 2016, Slater and Lawrence 2013). READ MORE

  5. 5. Development and Implementation of a Mass Balancing System for CubeSat Attitude Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulations

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Guillermo Ledo López; [2019]
    Keywords : hil; hardware in the loop; simulation; satellite; simulator; platform; simulink; matlab; least squares; aocs; testing; attitude; dynamics; control;

    Abstract : Spacecraft simulator platforms can simulate the microgravity environment of space on Earth, for the purposes of testing the Attitude and Orbit Control Subsystem of satellites. In order to do this, the satellite is mounted on a bench and the combined center of mass of this assembly is controlled by a series of moving masses. READ MORE
