  1. 1. Response of glaciers to climate change : Mass balance sensitivity, sea level rise and runoff

    Författare :Mattias de Woul; Regine Hock; Peter Jansson; Margareta Hansson; Roger J. Braithwaite; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; Physical geography; Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of the response of glaciers to climate change. Global sea level is affected by changes in glacier ice volume, and melt-water from glaciers is a principal water source in many regions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ethical Adaptation to Sea Level Rise: The Planner’s Perspective

    Författare :Anna Wedin; Karin Edvardsson Björnberg; Per Wikman-Svahn; Neelke Doorn; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; adaptation; climate change; sea level rise; local planning; ethics; empirical ethics; planning for uncertainty; Philosophy; Filosofi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis addresses local adaptation to climate change-induced sea level rise, taking an ethical perspective and focusing at the role of planning and the planner. The research, which has been conducted within a transdisciplinary research project, takes a bottom-up approach to applied ethics, and relies to a great extent on empirical data. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Local Sea Level Observations Using Reflected GNSS Signals

    Författare :Johan Löfgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :GNSS-R; signal-to-noise ratio; sea level; GNSS; reflected signals; multipath; GPS; GLONASS; tide gauge; phase-delay;

    Sammanfattning : Sea level rise due to global warming is predicted to have a large impact on human society, especially for populations living in coastal regions and on islands. It is therefore of great importance to monitor the sea level and to increase the understanding of the local hydrodynamic and meteorological responses to a global sea level rise. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Observing Sea Level Using Reflected Global Navigation Satellite System Signals

    Författare :Johan Löfgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :tide gauge; Global Navigation Satellite Systems; ocean tides; reflected signals; sea-level monitoring;

    Sammanfattning : Sea-level rise due to global warming is predicted to have a large impact on human society, especially for populations living in coastal regions and on islands. It is therefore of great importance to monitor the sea level and to increase the understanding of the local hydrodynamic and meteorological responses to a global sea-level rise. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Wind and atmospheric stability characteristics over the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Nina Svensson; Erik Sahlée; Hans Bergström; Anna Rutgersson; Xiaoli Guo Larsén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; coastal transition; stable conditions; boundary layer rolls; low level jet; WRF; Baltic Sea; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Sammanfattning : In recent years there has been an increase in offshore wind energy, which poses the need for accurate wind speed estimates in the marine environment, especially in coastal areas where most wind turbines will be placed. This thesis is focused on the Baltic Sea, which is a small, semi-enclosed sea where land-sea interaction play an important role in explaining the wind patterns. LÄS MER
