  1. 1. Genetic Determinants of Dyslipidemia

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Tibor V Varga; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetic epidemiology; Genetic polymorphism; dyslipidaemia; Cholesterol; Triglyceride; Genetic risk; genetic risk score; Single nucleotide polymorphism; Prediction; Gene-environment interactions; Randomized controlled trial; prospective cohort studies; Observational study; GLACIER Study; Diabetes Prevention Program;

    Abstract : Dyslipidemia is a chronic deviation from normal blood lipid levels that can lead to atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases; dyslipidemia and its sequelae are caused by the complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Although circulating concentrations of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) have a strong genetic underpinning, not much is known about the genetic factors that affect long-term deteriorations in lipid concentrations.

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Mattias de Woul; Regine Hock; Peter Jansson; Margareta Hansson; Roger J. Braithwaite; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies in Glacier Mass Balance Measurement and its errors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Andrew Mercer; Peter Jansson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Ian Brown; Jonathan Carrivick; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciology; Mass Balance; Measurement Errors; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamics of the cold surface layer of polythermal Storglaciären, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Rickard Pettersson; Per Holmlund; Peter Janssson; Jens-Ove Näslund; Regine Hock; Helgi Björnsson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polythermal glacier; cold surface layer; ground-penetrating radar; spatial variability; water content; Storglaciären; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Polythermal glaciers, i.e. glaciers with a combination of ice at and below the freezing point, are widespread in arctic and subarctic environments. The polythermal structure has major implications for glacier hydrology, ice flow and glacial erosion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Who is Marching for Pachamama? An Intersectional Analysis of Environmental Struggles in Bolivia under the Government of Evo Morales

    University dissertation from Lund : Lund University Open Access
