  1. 1. Climate Change and Precipitation Variability Influence on the Greenland Ice Sheet

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : Jennie Olsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Physics; Ice Sheet; Surface Mass Balance; SMB; Representative Concentration Pathways; RCP; Climate Change; Greenland; Precipitation; Precipitation Variability; Glaciers; Glacier; Meteorology; Greenhouse Effect; Greenhouse Gas; Future Climate; Climate; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Climate changes have a large impact on precipitation patterns and precipitation variability change. With this in mind, precipitation over Greenland is studied. This is done for present day precipitation model data from 1991-2010 compared to future model simulations of precipitation for 2081-2100. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis and comparison of weather models for solar irradiance forecasts in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : Linus Falk; [2018]
    Keywords : meteorology; weather models; ensemble forecasts; solar irradiance; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Solar radiation is affected in a variety of different ways through the atmosphere and on its way down to the Earth’s surface. Clouds are the main factor in this attenuation of solar radiation, but aerosols, ozone and other different gases have a significant impact too. Understanding these processes is fundamental to solar forecasting. READ MORE

  3. 3. Linguistic uncertainty in meteorological forecastsfor Russian speaking audiences : A comparative study between televised weather forecastsand seasonal outlooks of the Northern Eurasian ClimateOutlook Forum

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Ryska

    Author : Freja S. E. Vamborg; [2018]
    Keywords : Russian; linguistics; linguistic markers; uncertainty; communication; communication guidelines; climate; meteorology; weather forecasts; seasonal forecasts;

    Abstract : In order to make informed decisions, we need to resort to various types of information and we need to know how uncertain this information is. A commonly used source for information and subsequent action is weather forecasts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Study of spatial and temporal variation of atmospheric optical parameters and their relation with PM 2.5 concentration over Europe using GIS technologies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Panagiotis Symeonidis; [2017]
    Keywords : aerosols; air quality; satellite remote sensing; GIS; geography; Geographical Information Systems; particulate matter; Aerosol Optical Depth; MODIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine the use of remote sensing aerosol data as an estimator of ground level fine particulate matter concentration (PM 2.5). In order to examine this possible relation, daily MODIS Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) data were used, collected for an entire year. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analyzing Meteorological Relationships to Aerosols in China

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : Carl Svenhag; [2017]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Meteorological conditions are influenced everyday by air-bound aerosols and pollution in the atmosphere, and understanding these processes from micro to synoptic scale, is essential for forecasting and creating high resolution weather models. In this study, three different experimental weather models are analysed to provide some understanding on how various meteorological parameters are influenced by modelling atmospheric aerosols.
