  1. 1. Indoor positioning systems in office environments - A study of standards, techniques and implementation processes for indoor maps

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; Lunds universitet/Lantmäteri (CI)

    Author : Isabelle Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : indoor positioning system; IPS; office; navigation; positioning; data format; IMDF; Apple Indoor Maps; IndoorGML; ArcGIS Indoors; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Eftersom människor tillbringar större delen av sin dagliga tid inomhus idag, ökar intresset och användningen av system för inomhusmiljöer, så kallade inomhuspositioneringssystem (IPS). De senaste åren har det därför tillkommit nya dataformat för inomhuskartläggning och kommersiella IPS och har ännu inte studerats ingående. READ MORE

  2. 2. Secondary aerosol formation from dimethyl sulfide - Smog chamber experiments and detailed process modelling

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

    Author : Dana Lüdemann; [2020]
    Keywords : aerosol modelling; atmospheric physics and chemistry; marine aerosols; ADCHAM; aerosol; dimethyl sulfide; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the secondary aerosol formation from dimethylsulfide (DMS) using the aerosol dynamics, gas- and particle-phase chemistry kinetic multi-layer model, ADCHAM. The first simulations, concerning the butanol oxidation via hydroxyl radicals (OH), were performed to characterize the UV-light source of the AURA smog chamber (Aarhus university, Denmark), later used for the DMS experiments.

  3. 3. Assessment of weather conditions for ALMA observations of the Sun

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Daniel Jakobsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Atacama Large Millimeter Array; ALMA; Solar observation;

    Abstract : The closest star to Earth is the Sun. The difference between our Sun and other stars is that the dynamics are observable with telescopes. A complex and strange part of our Sun is the chromosphere which is a part of the solar atmosphere. READ MORE

  4. 4. Can blue-green infrastructure aid climate change adaptation by preventing flooding?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Isabell Plars; [2020]
    Keywords : Pluvial flooding; Climate change adaptation; Green solutions; Blue-green infrastructure; BGI; Green Infrastructure; Hydrological modelling; TFM-DYN; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The risk of pluvial flooding is going to increase as climate change causes an increase in intense precipitation along with urbanisation leading to an increase in impermeable surfaces. In the last decade, cities such as Malmö and Copenhagen have already experienced severe pluvial flooding that has caused extensive damage. READ MORE

  5. 5. NDVI time series analysis for desert locust outbreak detection and quantification analysis of its impact on vegetation productivity of Sahel

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Evangelos Oikonomopoulos; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Primary Productivity; Desert Locust; NDVI; Time Series Analysis; Outbreak Detection; Food Security; Sahel; Insect Disturbances; GEM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : It has been shown that the semi-arid environment of the Sahelian belt plays an important role in the global carbon uptake as the fluctuation of its primary productivity can be determinant for the global carbon uptake. The insect Schistocerca gregaria commonly known as the desert locust is a disturbance factor that can affect the vegetation productivity for consecutive seasons. READ MORE
