  1. 1. Multitemporal Spaceborne Polarimetric SAR Data for Urban Land Cover Mapping

    Författare :Xin Niu; Yifang Ban; Laurent Ferro-Famil; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; RADARSAT-2; Spaceborne; Polarimetric SAR; Urban Land cover; Object-based Rule-based Classification; Support Vector Machines; Contextual; Stochastic Expectation-Maximization; Markov Random Field.;

    Sammanfattning : Urban land cover mapping represents one of the most important remote sensing applications in the context of rapid global urbanization. In recent years, high resolution spaceborne Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) has been increasingly used for urban land cover/land-use mapping, since more information could be obtained in multiple polarizations and the collection of such data is less influenced by solar illumination and weather conditions.

  2. 2. Unleashing Science Popularisation: Studies on Science as Popular Culture

    Författare :Andreas Gunnarsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :science popularisation; popular culture; public understanding of science; science and the media;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to broaden the concept of science popularisation. It argues that the conventional view of popularisation as the public communication of appropriately simplified versions of established facts to lay audiences fails to capture the multifaceted nature of popularisation practices through which science and popular culture are recombined.

  3. 3. Tala om att tänka. Om processer och projekt vid användning av orden 'tänka' och 'tanke' i tre samtal

    Författare :Inga-Lill Grahn; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; systemic-functional linguistics; process type analysis; activity analysis; communicative projects; dialogism; thinking; languaging; sense-making; Swedish;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is a qualitative investigation of how the Swedish verb tänka and the noun tanke are used in three radio phone-in counseling conversations (the words are comparable with, but not equivalent to, the English verb think and the noun thought). The aim of the study is to explore in detail what the participants talk about when they use these two words. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Existential design : the "dark side" of design thinking

    Författare :Anne Britt Torkildsby; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Textiles and Fashion General ; Textil och mode generell ;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to discuss ways to open up the brief in designing for extreme environments, such as intensive care units and remand prison. Focusing on „designials‟ (fundamental forms of design being), the methodology intends to illustrate that things; objects may directly impinge on certain „existentials‟ (fundamental forms of human being).

  5. 5. Exocytosis in Type 2 Diabetes- Functional and genetic studies of hormone secretion

    Författare :Sofia A Andersson; Diabetes - öcellsexocytos; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 Diabetes; Insulin; Glucagon; Alpha-cells; Beta-cells; Exocytosis; Capacitance; SNARE; SNAP25; Syntaxin1A; Synaptotagmin; Munc-18 Stxbp1 ; SNP; Expression; miRNA;

    Sammanfattning : Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is characterized by dysregulated beta-and alpha-cell hormone secretion leading to elevated blood glucose levels. Several proteins are crucial in maintaining exocytosis of the hormone-containing granules such as Syntaxin1A (Stx1A), SNAP25, Munc-18 (Stxbp1) and the family of Synaptotagmins (Syts). LÄS MER
