  3. 3. Evaluating forest wildfire effect on tree increment patterns for boreonemoral forests in Sweden: A pilot study using remote sensing

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Joanna Eaton; [2022]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2A; Forest wildfires; dNBR; NDVI; dNDVI; Dendrochronology; Atmospheric science and biogeochemical cycles; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The release of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) has substantially increased the global mean surface air temperature. Increases in global mean surface air temperature will lead to warmer and drier conditions, promoting more frequent, long-lasting, intense forest wildfires. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of fire and frost drought events on vegetation greenness and albedo in Subarctic Scandinavia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Elin Backström; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; Vegetation Greenness; Albedo; Fire; Frost Drought; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : With climate change, the frequency in climate extremes such as drought, heavy rainfalls, and extreme temperatures is predicted to increase. These extremes can potentially stress and damage vegetation over large areas, leading to altered carbon cycle, vegetation greenness, albedo, and shifted species composition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Baking volume of wheat flour : assessment of novel analyses and parameters in prediction

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Assar Sundholm; [2021]
    Keywords : baking volume; wheat flour; Alveolab; SDmatic; SRC 2;

    Abstract : In the milling industry baking volume is used as the gold standard for wheat flour quality. Determination of baking volume is a time-consuming and blunt method, demanding a quicker and more precise substitute. The aim of this thesis was to assess how different rheological and chemical parameters affect baking volume. READ MORE
