  1. 1. A sensory evaluation of swidden rye (Secale cereale) – how the taste of history and geographical location can play part in a sustainable food production

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Amanda Jonsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Sustainable Development; Sensory science; Landrace; Terroir; Food system; Consumer science;

    Abstract : Due to their resilience, durability, and broad genetic variations, increasing the production and consumption of landrace cereals has been highlighted as a solution to handle increasing environmental variability resulting from climate change. However, the consumption of landrace cereals remains low due to limited production and purchase availability for consumers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Implementing a multi-criteria GIS analysis and predictive modelling to locate Upper Palaeolithic decorated caves in the Périgord noir, France

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Benjamin Bernard Fabien Gérard Borgeais; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; MCDA; MCE; MCDM; MCA; predictive modelling; archaeology; decorated caves; Upper Palaeolithic; Périgord; Dordogne; Vézère; France; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Geographical Information Systems are a powerful tool for the processing of geographical data and can be used to implement predictive modelling for the purpose of archaeological research. The study presented here proposes a predictive model based on multi-criteria evaluation, and aims at analysing the parameters of known Upper Palaeolithic decorated caves in the Périgord noir, in southwest France.

  3. 3. Temporal evaluation of retention patch development : retention patches in Swedish forestry

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Noel Wieser; Per Schönning; [2022]
    Keywords : Retention forestry; Retention patch; Inland; Near coastal; Geographics information systems; Orthophotos; Västerbotten;

    Abstract : The demands on the world’s forests are increasing rapidly and the different interests are conflicting, often including goals of biodiversity and timber production. Forest management has since the 1990s included a scientifically validated measure known as retention forestry, to better balance conflicting goals of forest management. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mussels in deep water with climate change: Spatial distribution of mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis) growth offshore in the French Mediterranean with respect to climate change scenario RCP 8.5 Long Term and Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) using Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Victoria Persson; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Mediterranean; Mytilus galloprovincialis; Dynamic Energy Budget; DEB; growth rate; France; mussel cultivation; mussel farming; offshore; aquaculture; climate change; Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture; IMTA; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Victoria Persson Abstract Mussel cultivation is a sustainable type of food production that may help mitigate the nutritional needs of a future world population of 10-12 billion in 2100. The demand for mussels on the French market is increasing but the production is saturated due to a lack of space for expanding the cultivation close to shore. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optimizing the locations of bike-sharing stations using GPS-based trip data: A Spatio-temporal demand coverage approach

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Birkan Caliskan; [2022]
    Keywords : Geomatics; GIS; Bike-sharing; Genetic Algorithm; Location-allocation; Site selection; Optimization; Spatial Analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Shared micro-mobility services are increasingly embraced by cities around the world in recent years. Their benefits over other transportation modes in certain frames encourage traffic/urban planners, public authorities to establish such systems in urban areas. READ MORE
