  1. 1. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Needs and requirements for the development and application of safe and cost-efficientmedical technology in low resource settings

    University essay from KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Author : Linda Maria Nummisalo; [2020]
    Keywords : Bangladesh; Medical Devices; Health Care;

    Abstract : Growing populations and especially the growing proportion of elderly in the developing countries in South Asia pose an increasingly higher pressure on the health care systems in these countries. For example, in Bangladesh, a part of the pressure is currently eased by the unofficial health care workers called village doctors but with the cost of wrong diagnoses and unnecessary medications leading to excess use of e.

  3. 3. The Influence of Cavity Widths and Lateral Ventilation Conditions on the Fire Behaviour within a Non-Combustible Ventilated Façade System

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Daniel Fogerty; [2020]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Present uncertainties in key ventilation parameters, characterising the fire performance of facades, has necessitated clarification in the foundational understanding of the Fire Science Body of Knowledge. A test program conducted in collaboration between Lunds Universitet and the Kingspan Group, studied the influence of cavity widths and lateral ventilation conditions on the fire behaviour within Intermediate-scale ventilated façades following the ISO 13785-1 standards.

  5. 5. Transmission of Vibrations in Precast Concrete Slabs

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Adam Oskarsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Vibration; Concrete; Transmission; Precast;

    Abstract : Dynamic loads have historically not been a troubled area for concrete floors, foremostbecause of the high self-weight compared to the dynamic load. With new technical andcalculation achievements during the last decades concrete floors have become longerand more slender. READ MORE
