  1. 1. Investigating Sand Dune Location, Orientation and Geomorphometry Through GEOBIA-Based Mapping: A Case Study in Northern Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Melanie Stammler; [2020]
    Keywords : sand dunes; geomorphological mapping; object-based image analysis; landscape development; sanddyner; geomorfologisk kartläggning; geografisk objektbaserad bildanalys; landskapsutveckling;

    Abstract : Climate change has repeatedly been framed as the defining issue of the Anthropocene and with the Arctic changing at unpreceded speed need is high for a profound understanding of the Northern Swedish landscape. Northern Swedish aeolian sand dunes have been impacted by climatic changes throughout time. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamics of Selachian (Shark) Dental Morphology During the Early Mesozoic

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Alexander Paxinos; [2017]
    Keywords : Early Mesozoic; Selachii; morphological disparity; geometric morphometrics; early radiation; Tidig Mesozoisk; Selachimorpha; morfologisk disparitet; geometrisk morfometri; tidig strålning;

    Abstract : The ancestors of all modern day sharks and rays (Neoselachii) may have appeared during the Late Palaeozoic, but their major diversification happened sometime during the Early Mesozoic. Taxonomic evidence places the first neoselachian diversification in the Early Jurassic. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diversity and Ecology of a Middle Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Marine Reptile Assemblage from Skåne, Southern Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lena Källsten; [2015]
    Keywords : Landmark morphometrics; Marine amniotes; Cretaceous; Mosasauridae; Plesiosauridae; Aigialosuchus; Landmärkesbaserad morfometri; marina amnioter; Kritaperioden; Mosasauridae; Plesiosauridae; Aigialosuchus;

    Abstract : This study has looked at an assemblage of fossilised teeth from Mesozoic marine amniotes from the Kristianstad basin in southern Sweden in order to make an estimate of the ecomorph diversity within said assemblage through looking at the morphology of the teeth. This was done as a pilot study to see if further studies would be able to produce worthwhile results. READ MORE

  4. 4. Disparity of Early Cretaceous Lamniformes sharks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Fredrik Söderblom; [2015]
    Keywords : Lamniformes; disparity; Early Cretaceous; morphology; morphometric; Lamniformes; disparitet; tidig krita; morfologi; morfometri;

    Abstract : The geological range of lamniform sharks stretches from present day species such as Carcharodon carcharias (great white shark) back to the at the moment oldest undoubted fossil finds during the Early Cretaceous. In this paper a geometric morphometric analysis was performed on images of Early Cretaceous lamniform teeth collected from published literature in order to examine the change in disparity (range of morphological variation within a group) throughout the time period.
