  1. 1. A sedimentological study of Cryogenian glacial-interglacial cycles recorded by the Port Askaig Tillite Formation on Islay, Scotland

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för geologiska vetenskaper

    Author : Martin Dahlgren; [2018]
    Keywords : Cryogenian; Islay; Snowball Earth; Tillite;

    Abstract : An interglacial mudstone sequence from the Port Askaig Tillite Formation on Islay was analysed using an Olympus XRF detector. The resulting geochemical log was compared with an XRF dataset acquired from a Quaternary sedimentary core from the Lomonosov Ridge in the Arctic Ocean. READ MORE

  2. 2. Designing of frazil ice test rig

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Niloufar Safa; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A large part of electricity in Sweden is produced by hydropower plants, which are a safe and pollution-free source for electricity production. In the cold season, when the temperature of water decreases to below zero, water can be frozen and different types of ice will be generated. Frazil Ice is one type of ice that is made by turbulent water. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of field tests of different ice measurement methods for wind power : focusing on their usability for wind farm site assessment and finding production losses

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära

    Author : Helena Wickman; [2013]
    Keywords : wind power; cold climate; ice detector; production loss; site assessment; vindkraft; kallt klimat; isdetektor; produktionsförlust;

    Abstract : The favorable wind recourses in many cold climate regions make them interesting for development of wind farms. However, with the cold climate come drawbacks due to icing. Production losses, fatigue loadings, ice throws and increased noise are some of the more severe issues that have to be addressed. READ MORE

  4. 4. An FPGA implementation of neutrino track detection for the IceCube telescope

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Datorteknik

    Author : Carl Wernhoff; [2010]
    Keywords : FPGA; IceCube; neutrino; telescope; south pole; trigger; Track Engine;

    Abstract : The IceCube telescope is built within the ice at the geographical South Pole in the middle of the Antarctica continent. The purpose of the telescope is to detect muon neutrinos, the muon neutrino being an elementary particle with minuscule mass coming from space.The detector consists of some 5000 DOMs registering photon hits (light).
