  2. 2. Hydrographic and morphologic processes at Falsterbo peninsula - Present conditions and future scenarios

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Sten Blomgren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]

    Abstract : Falsterbo Peninsula in the south-west corner of Sweden is low-lying and built up of unconsolidated sand. Vulnerability to high water levels and wave action is of concern for the 10,000 residents of the peninsula, especially in consideration of global warming as enhanced inundation and coastal erosion problems may ensue.

  4. 4. Mapping bathymetry From measurement to applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Benjamin Hell; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ocean and coastal mapping; Digital Bathymetric Model; Geographical Information System; Applications of bathymetric data; Baltic Sea; Arctic Ocean; Seafloor morphology; Ocean circulation; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap; Marine Geoscience; marin geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Surface elevation is likely the most fundamental property of our planet. In contrast to land topography, bathymetry, its underwater equivalent, remains uncertain in many parts of the World ocean. Bathymetry is relevant for a wide range of research topics and for a variety of societal needs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tracking environmental changes of the Baltic Sea coastal zone since mid-Holocene

    University dissertation from Quaternary Sciences, Department of Geology, Faculty of Science

    Author : Wenxin Ning; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I used two coastal sediment sequences from SE Sweden to study how Baltic Sea coastal environment has changed since the mid-Holocene. The results show the coastal environment has been influenced by multi-stressors, such as climate change, shoreline regression and anthropogenic activities. READ MORE
