  1. 1. Spatiotemporal changes in Gothenburg municipality's green space, 1986 to 2019

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Kristin Blinge; [2021-04-01]
    Keywords : NDVI; multitemporal change analysis; incremental change; urbanization;

    Abstract : As the world’s population is becoming increasingly more urban the infrastructure expands to accommodate the inhabitants’ needs. In a dense urban environment green space has an important function since it provides vital ecosystem services, contributes to recreational and cultural values and is essential for biodiversity.

  2. 2. Spatio-temporal drought characteristics in the Limpopo basin from 1918 to 2018 - A case study based on analysis of the Standardized Precipitation Evaporation Index (SPEI)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Sandra Domingos Sambo; [2021]
    Keywords : rdought; Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index; Limpopo River basin; Normalized difference vegetation index; Mann-Kendall Test; Correlation analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The identification of the characteristics of drought are of great importance in water resources planning and management. This study explored the characteristics of drought at Limpopo River Basin (LRB) from 1918 to 2018. READ MORE

  3. 3. Agriculture monitoring using satellite data

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Graff Erik; [2021]
    Keywords : Sentinel; satellite; agriculture; monitoring; dynamic time warping; remote sensing;

    Abstract : As technology advances, the possibility of using satellite data and observations to aid inagricultural activities comes closer to reality. Swedish farmers can apply for subsidies for their land in which crop management and animal grazing occurs, and every year thousands of manual follow-up checks are conducted by Svenska Jordbruksverket (Swedish Board of Agriculture) to validate the farmers’ claims to financial aid.

  4. 4. Topographic controls of drought impact on Swedish primary forests

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Johanna Asch; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical geography; ecosystem analysis; primary forest; boreal forest; drought impact; topography; drainage; climate change; random forest; terrain index; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic climate change has increased the frequency of extreme drought events and leads to “hotter” droughts. Topography controls plant available water and site-specific climatic conditions. Drought sensitivity may therefore vary over short distances between wet and dry locations of the landscape. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of the 2018 drought on mire productivity in Skogaryd - Evaluation of ground sensors, satellite data and meteorological data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ines Júlio Alfredo; [2021]
    Keywords : Sentinel 2; Vegetation Indices; Ground Sensors; Drought and Mire; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The drought is a complex meteorological phenomenon associated with low precipitation and low water saturation in atmosphere, soils and plants and can has a great effect on aboveground biomass and change the structure and function of the ecosystems. The droughts also are known to reduce the primary and secondary productivity of vegetation. READ MORE
