  1. 1. Measuring natural hemispheric asymmetry in the brain: quantifying the Yakovlevian torque phenomenon

    University essay from

    Author : Hannah Moeini; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; cerebral asymmetry; yakovlevian torque; petalia occipital bending;

    Abstract : Background: Just by a cursory examination, the two hemispheres of the human brain may appear as mirror images of one another. Yet, the left and right sides exhibit profound differences in anatomy. One of the most obvious expressions of hemispheric asymmetry is the counterclockwise rotation of the brain known as “Yakovlevian torque”. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a computational method for determining gamma energy escape from calorimeters at CLAB

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Amela Mehic; [2022]
    Keywords : Nuclear physics; Calorimeter; SNF; MCNP; Dose rate; CLAB; Gamma energy; Fuel assembly; Form function; Attenuation coefficient; Gamma spectroscopy;

    Abstract : Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company- SKB has conducted measurement campaigns at the Swedish central interim storage facility for spent nuclear fuel- CLAB over the years, extending from year 2003 to 2019 where the gamma energy escape was acquired. At CLAB the spent nuclear fuel assembly is inserted into the calorimeter; device intended to measure temperature increase due to decay heat from the fuel assembly. READ MORE

  3. 3. Convection in a spherical shell under rapid rotation: numerical simulations

    University essay from KTH/Teknisk mekanik

    Author : Camille Rambert; [2022]
    Keywords : convection; rapid rotation; spectral methods; spherical geometry;

    Abstract : A numerical method for solving the buoyancy-driven magneto-convection equations in a rapidly rotating spherical shell is presented. The method is implemented through a FORTRAN 90 program, based on a FORTRAN 66 code written by Hollerbach [International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids, 32 (2000)] and partially translated in FORTRAN 90 by Riquier.

  4. 4. Integrating horticultural and arable crops : a sustainable way to increase vegetable production in Scania?

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Stina Helena Mortensen; [2022]
    Keywords : Horticulture; agriculture; vegetables; crop rotation; crop sequence; diversification; integration; ecosystem services; farmers’ attitudes;

    Abstract : Modern arable production is associated with a highly homogenous landscape with few cultivated species and is relying heavily on external chemical inputs. Intensive vegetable production, on the other hand, is associated with environmental costs such as increased risk of nutrient leaching and loss of soil organic matter. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microsatellite Constellation for Wildfire Monitoring

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Citlali Bruce Rosete; [2022]
    Keywords : microsatellite; shortwave infrared sensor; active fire monitoring; burned area detection; satellite constellation; mikrosatellit; kortvågig infraröd sensor; aktiv brandövervakning; detektion av brandhärjat område; satellitkonstellation;

    Abstract : I flera års tid har antalet svåra och okontrollerade skogsbränder ökat i antal. Det finns ett behov av att detektera skogsbränder med hjälp av satelliter som har högre tidsupplösning samt högre geometrisk upplösning än de satelliter som är i bruk idag. READ MORE
