  1. 1. Strategic Planning for Climate Adaptation - a case study of Åre municipality

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Kajsa Kronkvist; [2022]
    Keywords : Climate change adaptation; municipal planning processes; landslide risk management; mountain tourist destinations; Social Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Åre municipality, a well-known skiing resort in Sweden, has been classified as a primary risk area for landslides, due to a combination of global warming and increased pressure from expansion. The purpose of this study is to explore options to strengthen climate adaptation planning and reduce vulnerability in Åre. READ MORE

  2. 2. Far-field pattern synthesis of transmitarray antennas using convex optimization techniques

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad fysik

    Author : Marie Defives; [2022]
    Keywords : Applied physics; Transmitarray antennas; convex optimization; Tillämpad fysik; Transmitarray-antenner; konvex optimering;

    Abstract : Transmitarrays antennas (TAs) can be seen as the planar counterpart of optical lenses. They are composed of thin radiating elements (unit cells) which introduce different local phase shifts on an incident electromagnetic wave, emitted by a primary source, and re-radiate it. READ MORE

  3. 3. Building the Future - A case study on creating a climate neutral construction sector in Malmö, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Frida Håkansson; [2022]
    Keywords : LFM30; Sustainable Construction; Climate Neutrality; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The climate on our planet is changing, and with it the conditions for its people. As the need for housing grows, the construction sector will have to balance increasing environmental requirements with a continuous need for construction. In order to do so, Sweden has a national roadmap with set goals for climate neutrality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of PLA Nanoplastics, and Their Effects on Daphnia magna

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Centrum för analys och syntes

    Author : Melinda Rydberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Polylactic acid; Polylactide; PLA; Nanoplastic; Daphnia magna; Toxicity; Polymer Technology; Chemistry; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : As plastic pollution in aquatic environments keeps happening it has become more and more important to learn more about nanoparticles. Bio-based and biologically degradable plastics, such as polylactic acid (PLA), are gaining popularity and it is therefore important to determine whether they break down into nanoplastics or not.

  5. 5. Developing data processing program for a new radio magnetotelluric (RMT) instrument

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Geofysik

    Author : Elis Uebel; [2022]
    Keywords : RMT radio magnetotellurics matlab GUI;

    Abstract : The radio magnetotellucic (RMT) method originates from (Tikhonov, 1950) and (Cagniard,1953) who discovered the possibility to estimate resistivity in the Earth’s subsurface using naturally occurring telluric currents. This through measuring the surface impedance of electromagnetic waves. READ MORE
