  1. 1. Modelling, mapping and visualisation of flood inundation uncertainties

    Author : Nancy Joy Lim; Stefan Seipel; S. Anders Brandt; Eva A. U. Sahlin; Matthew Wilson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cartography; flood; hydraulic modelling; GIS; map; uncertainty; visualisation; GIS; hydraulisk modellering; karta; kartografi; osäkerhet; visualisering; översvämning; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Flood maps showing extents of predicted flooding for a given extreme event have wide usage in all types of spatial planning tasks, as well as serving as information material for the public. However, the production processes that these maps undergo (including the different data, methods, models and decisions from the persons generating them), which include both Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and hydraulic modelling, affect the map’s content, and will be reflected in the final map.

  2. 2. Transformation phenomena in a super duplex stainless steel

    Author : Anders Wilson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Duplex stainless steel; Microstructure; Phase transformations; Precipitates; Sigma phase; Kinetics; Thermodynamic calculation; Continuous cooling transformation diagram; Time temperature transformation diagram; Computer model.;

    Abstract : Duplex stainless steels consist of about equal fractions offerrite and austenite and are attractive due to their highcorrosion resistance against pitting corrosion and stresscorrosion cracking. The pitting corrosion resistance can bedescribed by the PREN value which is defined asPREN=%Cr+3.3*%Mo+16*%N. READ MORE

  4. 4. Autonomous Åland : A hundred years of borderwork in the Baltic Sea

    Author : Ida Hughes Tidlund; Simon Ekström; Barbro Blehr; Thomas M. Wilson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Åland; Finland; borders; borderwork; built place; practico-inert; hodological navigation; maritime; minority; territorial autonomy; Ethnology; etnologi;

    Abstract : This dissertation applies an ethnological and long-temporal view of borders. The region of Åland, being an autonomous and demilitarised island territory under Finnish sovereignty, serves as an illuminative case of the work that goes into keeping borders fixed for two reasons.

  5. 5. A molecular exploration of sensory responses in c. elegans

    Author : Longjun Pu; Changchun Chen; Simon Tuck; Sara I Wilson; Zhiyong Shao; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; C. elegans; sensation; CRISPR Cas9; G protein-coupled receptors; neuropeptides; acute hypoxia; pathogen; chemosensation; hydrogen sulfide; HIF-1; iron;

    Abstract : Sensation provides a pivotal ability, allowing animals to survive in complex environments. The cues sensed by animals are represented by external stimuli and internal signals. However, the mechanisms mediating sensations in molecular and cellular level are still not well-studied. In this thesis, by using free-living nematodes C. READ MORE
