  1. 1. The hydrodynamic impacts of Estuarine Oyster reefs, and the application of drone technology to this study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Oskar Evert Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Oyster Reef; Drone; UAV; Hydrodynamics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The impacts of climate change are being seen within the estuarine environment through erosion and shoreline retreat, associated with sea-level rise and changes in storm activity. Restoration oyster reefs have been identified as a working-with-nature strategy to protect and restore these shoreline environments, stabilising sediment, and reducing erosion. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determining and analysing production losses due to ice on wind turbines using SCADA data

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Oscar Felding; [2021]
    Keywords : Wind turbines; ice accretion; ice losses; SCADA; cold climate; Vindturbin; ispåbyggnad; isförluster; SCADA-data; kallt klimat;

    Abstract : Wind turbines are becoming a more common sight and a more important part in the power grid. The benefits are mainly that wind energy is a renewable energy source and a single wind turbine can produce enough electricity to cover several households’ annual electricity need and not producing carbon dioxide as a rest product.

  3. 3. Archaeologic inspection of the Milky Way using vibrations of a fossil : Seismic, spectroscopic and kinematic characterization of a binary metal-poor Halo star

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Observationell astrofysik

    Author : Amanda Byström; [2020]
    Keywords : Milky Way; Halo; galactic archaeology; asteroseismology; binary star; CEMP stars; CEMP-r s stars; stellar age; stellar mass; chemical abundance pattern; Gaia-Enceladus; Gaia-Sausage; Sequoia; spectroscopy; metal-poor;

    Abstract : The Milky Way has undergone several mergers with other galaxies during its lifetime. The mergers have been identified via stellar debris in the Halo of the Milky Way. The practice of mapping these mergers is called galactic archaeology. To perform this archaeologic inspection, three stellar features must be mapped: chemistry, kinematics and age. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lyman Continuum Radiation from Intermediate-Mass Black Holes : An Estimation of the Contribution of LyC Radiation from IMBHs in z~3 Galaxies

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Observationell astrofysik

    Author : Marika Ljungberg; [2020]
    Keywords : intermediate-mass black holes; cosmic reionization; high-redshift galaxies;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the cosmic reionization of the intergalactic medium in the high redshift universe and, in particular, is a first approach to examine what role intermediate mass black holes (IMBHs) play in this cosmic age. Unexpectedly high values of hydrogen ionizing radiation, compared to current models, have been reported from galaxies at redshift ~3 (used as stand-ins for galaxies at the age of reionization), and thus these models need revision, potentially by adding effects of IMBH content in the galaxies.

  5. 5. Defining, analyzing and determining power losses - due to icing on wind turbine blades

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Zandra Canovas Lotthagen; [2020]
    Keywords : Wind Power; De-icing; Defining; Ice losses; Task19; Temperature threshold; Power curve; Big Data;

    Abstract : The wind power industry is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy industries in the world. Since more energy can be extracted from wind when the density is higher, a lot of the investments made in the wind power industry are made in cold climates. But with cold climates come harsh weather conditions such as icing. READ MORE
