  2. 7. A height datum for Uganda based on a gravimetric quasigeoid model and GNSS/levelling

    Author : Ronald Ssengendo; Lars Sjoberg; Anthony Gidudu; Hossein Nahavandchi; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Geoid model; GNSS levelling; KTH method; Uganda; Uganda Vertical Network; Quasigeoid model; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik;

    Abstract : This study is devoted to the determination of a high resolution gravimetric geoid model for Uganda based on the optimal combination of terrestrial and satellite gravity anomalies using the method of Least Squares Modification of Stokes’ formula with additive corrections. Specifically the study investigates the current status of the existing Uganda Vertical Network relative to the requirements of a modern height datum and includes a detailed evaluation and validation of terrestrial gravity data, several digital elevation models and some recent global geopotential models.

  3. 8. Making Maps and Keeping Logs : Quantum Gravity from Classical Viewpoints

    Author : Niklas Johansson; Ulf Danielsson; Jan de Boer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; String theory; black holes in string theory; Calabi-Yau geometry; flux compactifications; three-dimensional gravity; Mathematical physics; Matematisk fysik; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis explores three different aspects of quantum gravity. First we study D3-brane black holes in Calabi-Yau compactifications of type IIB string theory. Using the OSV conjecture and a relation between topological strings and matrix models we show that some black holes have a matrix model description. READ MORE

  5. 10. Introducing Surface Gravity Waves into Earth System Models

    Author : Lichuan Wu; Anna Rutgersson; Erik Sahlée; Peter Janssen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface gravity waves; Air-sea interaction; Earth-System Model; Atmospheric mixing; Upper-ocean turbulence; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : Surface gravity waves alter the turbulence of the bottom atmosphere and the upper ocean. Accordingly, they can affect momentum flux, heat fluxes, gas exchange and atmospheric mixing. However, in most state-of-the-art Earth System Models (ESMs), surface wave influences are not fully considered or even included. READ MORE
