  1. 1. Insights Into Wind Profile Characteristics in the Arctic Marine Boundary Layer

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Charlotte Sophie Gausa; [2024]
    Keywords : Arctic; wind profile power law; MOST; boundary layer; low level jets; sea ice; vindprofil; Arktis; gränsskikt; vindenergi; låghöjdsvindar; havsis;

    Abstract : The atmospheric boundary layer in the Arctic is essential for the understanding of climate change and improving regional weather prediction. The aim of this study is to investigate to which degree wind speed profiles retrieved in the Arctic agree with well known wind profile concepts and understand which local impact factors influence the wind speed profile.

  2. 2. Juice/JDC ion measurement perturbations caused by spacecraft charging in the solar wind and Earth’s magnetosheath

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för fysik och astronomi

    Author : Derek van Winden; [2024]
    Keywords : Juice; Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer; JDC; Jovian plasma Dynamics and Composition analyzer; Particle Environment Package; PEP; Jupiter; Ganymede; Callisto; Europa; solar wind; magnetosheath; spacecraft charging; Spacecraft Plasma Interaction Software; SPIS; charging; plasma; measurement perturbations; perturbation; distortion; particle detector; Institutet för Rymdfysik; IRF; Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies; DIAS; European Space Agency; ESA;

    Abstract :  In July 2031, a new chapter in the exploration of the Jovian system will begin with the arrival of the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (Juice) at Jupiter. Launched on April 14 2024 as part of ESA’s Cosmic Vision programme, the mission aims to study Jupiter and its icy Galilean moons Callisto, Europa, and Ganymede. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integrating Local Knowledge into the Spatial Analysis of Wind Power: The case study of Northern Tzoumerka, Greece

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Athanasios Senteles; [2024]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; MCDA; wind energy; local knowledge; Greece; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Increasing demand for incorporating renewable energy projects into the national energy mix, is associated with international and European efforts to tackle the negative effects of climate change and strengthen energy resilience. Greece, as a member country of the European Union, has acknowledged that necessity, by implementing a national program aiming to significantly reduce Green House Gas Emissions and upscale Renewable Energy Sources (RES) project development in upcoming years.

  4. 4. Evaluating the accuracy of NEWA, ERA5 and NORA3 in predicting onshore wind conditions: a comparative study using ICOS meteorological mast data in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Svetlana Kuru; [2024]
    Keywords : NEWA; ERA5; NORA3; wind speed; wind distribution; correlation coefficient;

    Abstract : The ECMWF Reanalysis v5 (ERA5), the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA), and the 3 km Norwegian Reanalysis (NORA3) are reference datasets that are available for industry and research. The resolution of 3km in both the NORA3 and NEWA datasets sets them apart, while ERA5, with its 31km resolution, continues to serve as a reliable data source that is widely used in the industry.

  5. 5. Navigating Sustainability : A case study exploring alternative energy sources for maritime shipping

    University essay from KTH/Industriell ekonomi och organisation (Inst.)

    Author : Simon Nordenskiöld; [2024]
    Keywords : Maritime shipping; Alternative energy sources; Alternative fuels; Hydrogen-based fuels; Sustainable shipping; Electrofuels; Electro-methanol; Liquid Hydrogen; Electro-ammonia; Sails; Wind; Technological Innovation System; Sjöfart; Alternativa energikällor; Alternativa bränslen; Vätebaseradebränslen; Hållbar sjöfart; Elektrobränslen; Elektrometanol; Flytande väte; Elektroammoniak; Segel; Vind; Technological Innovation Systems;

    Abstract : This master thesis studies alternative energy sources for maritime shipping in Sweden. With current climate goals, and a need for change, the maritime sector currently undergoes intense transitions. For shipping companies to lower their carbon footprint, the need to replace non decarbonised fuels is hence critical. READ MORE
