  1. 1. LESSONS LEARNED BY 9 MARITIME SPATIAL PLANNING PROJECTS IN THE BALTIC SEA REGION A study of EU-funded transnational public sector projects

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Jonas Bjärnstedt; [2020-01-21]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis analyses the projects that are used to produce coherent transnational Maritime SpatialPlanning (MSP) in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) by the EU, in accordance with the MSP directive. As the number of projects have increased, there are so many that there is a possibility that knowledgegenerated in the projects does not reach subsequent projects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Jip Jan van Zoonen; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Digital Elevation Model; DEM; Glaciology; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces This study explores methods to quantify and evaluate error in digital elevation models (DEMs) built from remotely sensed elevation data of the Hintereisferner glacier. A special focus lies on glacier surfaces because glaciers are often inaccessible for field observations but at the same time prone to measurement errors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigating flood risk cost in Kungsbacka using the ICPR FloRiAn GIS-tool

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Erika Lindqvist; [2019-10-25]
    Keywords : Flood risk cost; flood risk analysis; risk management; flood; natural hazard; ICOR FloRiAn; GIS;

    Abstract : Losses from floods have increased in recent years, worldwide and in Sweden. Understanding the economic and non-monetary cost of being exposed to flood hazard is important from a spatial planning perspective, particularly in urban areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Urban Growth and Environmental Risks - A GIS-Based Analysis of Landslide Susceptibility in Bukavu (Democratic Republic of the Congo)

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för geografi

    Author : Simon Paul; [2019]
    Keywords : Bukavu; Landslides; Environmental Risks; GIS; Urban Growth; Slope Inclination; Land Cover; D. R. Congo; South Kivu; Satellite Data; Digital Elevation Model;

    Abstract : The city of Bukavu, located at the eastern border of the Democratic Republic of Congo in the province of South Kivu, is a large and densely populated urban agglomeration that has experienced rapid growth during recent years. At the same time, Bukavu has been repeatedly struck by environmental hazards, especially by devastating landslides. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reconstruction of past European land cover from pollen data: using spatial statistics and Crank-Nicolson Monte Carlo

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Lovisa Svensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Pollen data; compositional data; Dirichlet distribution; spatio-temporal reconstruction; Kronecker product; Gaussian Markov random field GMRF ; Markov Chain Monte Carlo MCMC ; Metropolis Hastings MH ; Metropolis adjusted Langevin algorithm MALA ; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Given a pollen data set from Europe over a time period, the aim is to reconstruct the past land cover by interpolating from the pollen data values to a continuous map. The data is on compositional form with three vegetation categories; coniferous forest, broadleaved forest and open land. READ MORE
