  1. 1. Soil health on organic farms : linking organic farmer practices to soil health and yield

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Lina Johansson; [2023]
    Keywords : organic farming; bulk density; management;

    Abstract : Soil health is a part of the sustainable agriculture which the EU is trying to develop. Organic farming can be one way of working towards more healthy soils. The term soil health can be divided into biological, chemical, and physical aspects of the soil that are necessary to sustain the plants grown. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mercury accumulation in lake sediments on different time scales – the influence of algal primary production

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Anne Rebotzke; [2023]
    Keywords : mercury; lake sediment; primary productivity; algal scavenging; biogenic silica; diatom proxy; chlorophyll-a; organic matter;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to test the proposed approach of algal scavenging as a driver of sediment mercury (Hg) on different time scales and to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of Hg accumulation in lake sediments. A 3000-year sediment record from Nylandssjön in northern Sweden was analysed for this purpose, as well as a 20-year sediment record from the seasonal sediment traps of this lake. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical properties in chalcogenide glasses and their temperaturedependence. : Literary survey and experiments.

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för materialvetenskap

    Author : Matilda Karlsson; Saifallah Khaled Ali; Erik Lundqvist; Ask Löthman Ybo; Kalle Sigås; Oscar Törnquist; [2023]
    Keywords : Chalcogenide materials; Chalcogenide glass; Optical properties; Temperature dependence;

    Abstract : This study aimed to investigate methods for determining the temperature dependence of the refractive index and absorption of IR-transparent materials through literary studies and experimental tests. Results from the experimental trials were hard to obtain due to the inherent difficulty of measuring optical properties and yielded only temperature trends of transmittance and reflectance.

  4. 4. Performance Estimation of a 1D pulsed LiDAR : A Study of SiPM-Based LiDAR in Ambient Light

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik (from 2013)

    Author : Joel Rune; [2023]
    Keywords : LiDAR; SiPM; SPAD; Ambient light; LiDAR; Kisel-fotomultiplikator; SPAD; Bakgrundsljus;

    Abstract : LiDAR is a remote sensing technology that uses a laser to map the surrounding environment. With its many applications, for example in autonomous vehicles, LiDAR is a growing field within technology and research. The silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) is a solid state device commonly used in the receiving system of a LiDAR. READ MORE

  5. 5. In-Situ Gold Resource Estimation Using Satellite Remote Sensing and Machine Learning in Defunct Tailing Storage Facilities (South Africa)

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Shenelle Agard; [2023]
    Keywords : tailings storage facility; critical raw materials; machine learning; mine valorisation;

    Abstract : The mining industry generates billions of tonnes of waste annually, which is often stored in tailings storage facilities (TSF). This waste is generated from the extraction of ore from surface or underground mines, as well as from metallurgical processing and low-grade stockpiles. READ MORE
