  1. 1. Urban drainage and climate change impact assessment

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007), the global mean temperature has increased by 0,7 °C during the last 100 years and, as a consequence, the hydrological cycle has intensified with, for example, more intense rainfall events. As urban drainage systems have been developed over a long period of time and design criteria are based upon climatic characteristics, these changes will affect the systems and the city accordingly.

  2. 2. Life cycle assessment in the development of forest products Contributions to improved methods and practices

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Gustav Sandin; RISE - Research Institutes of Sweden.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; R D; LCA; Life cycle assessment; wood; forest product; forestry; impact assessment; scenario modelling; end-of-life modelling; allocation; multi-functional; planetary boundaries; life cycle inventory; life cycle impact assessment; environmental assessment;

    Sammanfattning : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the research and development (R&D) of new forest products. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is often used for assessing the environmental impact of such products, e.g. for the purpose of guiding R&D. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biodiversity in environmental assessment tools for impact prediction

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Mikael Gontier; KTH.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; Environmental impact assessment; Strategic environmental assessment; Biodiversity assessment; Prediction tools; GIS; GIS-base ecological models; Miljöteknik; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Urbanisation and infrastructure developments impact on the surrounding natural environment and threaten biodiversity. The fragmentation of natural habitats in particular is a major obstacle for the preservation of biodiversity in a long-term perspective. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Författare :Markus Lundkvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Assessing mathematical creativity comparing national and teacher-made tests, explaining differences and examining impact

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Matematik och matematisk statistik, Umeå universitet

    Författare :Jesper Boesen; Umeå universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; Mathematical reasoning; creative reasoning; moderate high stake; teacher made tests; imitative reasoning; assessment; impact; influence; effect; mathematical competence; national tests;

    Sammanfattning : Students’ use of superficial reasoning seems to be a main reason for learning difficulties in mathematics. It is therefore important to investigate the reasons for this use and the components that may affect students’ mathematical reasoning development. LÄS MER
