  1. 1. Assessing evolution of ice caps in Suðurland, Iceland, in years 1986 - 2014, using multispectral satellite imagery

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Alicja Miodonska; [2019]
    Keywords : remote sensing; multispectral satellite imagery; Landsat; Iceland; glaciers; ice caps; Geography; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The study focuses on the application of multispectral satellite imageries in glaciological studies. It aims to assess how the Icelandic glaciers have evolved over the last decades (from the 1980s to 2014). The study area covers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull ice caps located in Suðurland, Iceland. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Regional Analysis of Changing Climate Conditions and Glacier Mass Balance in Svalbard

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ottar Bergman; [2019]
    Keywords : glacier mass balance; model data; climate change; Svalbard;

    Abstract : The Arctic archipelago of Svalbard has experienced among the greatest increases in temperature on Earth in the last few decades. The changing climatic conditions have a large impact on the glacier mass balance. This study makes use of a highresolution model dataset with data on climatic and glacier conditions on Svalbard from 1957 to 2018. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of different atmospheric forcings on surface mass balance estimates in Greenland

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Stina Olandersson; [2018]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; surface mass balance; Greenland; climate models; numerical weather prediction models; surface energy balance; Arctic; climate change; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The Greenland Ice sheet (GIS) is the second largest ice sheet on Earth and thus stores a large amount of Earths freshwater. Because of climate change and the Arctic amplification, GIS is experiencing changes and increased melt rates. The total mass budget determines the amount of sea level rise caused by input from freshwater from the GIS. READ MORE

  4. 4. Climate Change and Precipitation Variability Influence on the Greenland Ice Sheet

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

    Author : Jennie Olsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Physics; Ice Sheet; Surface Mass Balance; SMB; Representative Concentration Pathways; RCP; Climate Change; Greenland; Precipitation; Precipitation Variability; Glaciers; Glacier; Meteorology; Greenhouse Effect; Greenhouse Gas; Future Climate; Climate; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Climate changes have a large impact on precipitation patterns and precipitation variability change. With this in mind, precipitation over Greenland is studied. This is done for present day precipitation model data from 1991-2010 compared to future model simulations of precipitation for 2081-2100. READ MORE

  5. 5. Palaeoentomological reconstruction of the environment during the Late Quaternary : A comparison between living species in Europe and regionally extinct in British Isles

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för idé- och samhällsstudier

    Author : Genovefa Kourela; [2018]
    Keywords : Late Quaternary; BugsCep; Extinct species; Extant species; beetle habitats;

    Abstract : During the Late Quaternary, abrupt climate and cultural changes took place and made alternations to the past landscape. Climatic phenomena such as expand of ice masses,sea level rise, high and low temperatures, migration of humans, decline and increase of forest areas and more changes were the reason of changing the biodiversity of species and the formation of the land.
