    Abstract : Increased interaction between science and society is recognised as one of the characteristics of contemporary science. Solving the complex environmental problems of our day also necessitate such interactions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Framework For Structuring Information For Environmental Management Of Industrial Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Raul Carlson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Datalogi; Computer science; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; industrial environmental information systems; information structuring; sustainable development; database; data format; Life cycle assessment LCA ; Design for Environment DfE ; characterisation; weighting; indicator;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses information structuring for reducing cost, facilitate understandability, increase relevance and improve quality of environmental information. The research is based in experience, practical results and syntheses from three different but related research and development projects conducted between 1994 and 2004. READ MORE

  3. 3. Model-Based Stem Volume Retrieval and Windthrow Detection using CARABAS and P-band SAR

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Klas Folkesson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Övrig geovetenskap; Other earth sciences; Skogsuppskattning och skogsindelning; Forest mensuration; Fjärranalys; Remote sensing; Skogsteknik; Forest engineering; Övrig elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Other electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; remote sensing; synthetic aperture radar SAR ; CARABAS; P-band; image segmentation; forest monitoring; model-based stem volume retrieval; windthrow detection;

    Abstract : Radar remote sensing is an efficient method for monitoring forests over large areas. Radar waves transmitted from a system carried by a satellite or an aircraft interact with trees on the ground, and the reflected waves are used to form images which are independent of weather and light conditions.

  4. 4. Bioaugmentation for reduction of diffuse pesticide contamination

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Karin Önneby; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Pesticides and their residues frequently contaminate surface waters and groundwater so consequently there is a great need to identify methods and practices that reduce such contamination. This thesis examined the potential of a 'bioprophylactic' concept based on the hypothesis that diffuse contamination after application in the field can be significantly reduced if pesticides are degraded as rapidly as possible after the intended effect has been achieved.

  5. 5. Policy Integration for Sustainable Transport Development Case Studies of Two Swedish Regions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Linnea Eriksson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Policy integration; sustainable transport; region; policy; planning; public administration; institutional logics; organizational identity; boundary object; Sweden; Policy integration; samverkan; hållbara transporter; regional nivå; policy; planering; offentlig förvaltning; institutionella logiker; organisationsidentiteter; gränsobjekt;

    Abstract : It has been argued that for the management of complex issues such as sustainability, which transcend traditional policy sectors and require coordination between several different interests and actors, policymaking depends upon collaboration and integration processes between different sectors and tiers of government. The overall aim of this thesis is therefore to study how and why (or why not) policy integration processes are being developed in regional policymaking and what this means for the achievement of sustainable transport.
