  1. 1. Palaeo-ice streams in the north-eastern Laurentide Ice Sheet

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Hernán De Angelis; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ice sheet; ice stream; palaeo-ice sheet; palaeo-ice stream; glaciology; palaeoglaciology; Laurentide Ice Sheet; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; geografi med naturgeografisk inriktning; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a palaeoglaciological study aimed to determine the location, geometry and temporal evolution of palaeo-ice streams of the north-easternmost Laurentide Ice Sheet. The work was accomplished through the geomorphological interpretation of satellite imagery over 3. READ MORE

  2. 2. Breaking the ice effects of ice formation and winter floods on vegetation along streams

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lovisa Lind; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anchor ice; climate change; in-stream; riparian; river ice; streams; vegetation;

    Abstract : Streams in cold regions are characterized by unique hydrological processes that control flow regime and water levels. One of the most important processes is the formation, growth and melting of different types of ice in and around the stream channel during winter. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational Ice Sheet Dynamics Error control and efficiency

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Josefin Ahlkrona; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ice sheet modelling; stokes equations; shallow ice approximation; finite element method; perturbation expansions; non-newtonian fluids; free surface flow; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet or Antarctic Ice Sheet, have a fundamental impact on landscape formation, the global climate system, and on sea level rise. The slow, creeping flow of ice can be represented by a non-linear version of the Stokes equations, which treat ice as a non-Newtonian, viscous fluid. READ MORE

  4. 4. Winter behaviour of stream salmonids: effects of temperature, light, and ice cover

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Johan Watz; Karlstads universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stream salmonids; winter behaviour; efftect of temperatur; light; ice cover; environment; fish populations; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : In boreal streams, stream salmonids typically face low water temperatures and variable ice conditions during winter, and thus stream salmonids are expected to use different behavioural strategies to cope with these environmental conditions. The studies presented in this thesis explore how temperature, light intensity, and surface ice affect salmonid behaviour, with focus on drift-feeding and ventilation rates. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ice, wood and rocks regulating elements in riverine ecosystems

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet, Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Johanna Engström; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : riparian zone; timber floating; river restoration; cut-off side channels; hydrochory; large wood; anchor ice; fish;

    Abstract : Riparian ecosystems are of great importance in the landscape, connecting landscape elements longitudinally and laterally and often encompassing sharp environmental gradients in ecological processes and communities. They are influenced by fluvial disturbances such as flooding, erosion and sediment deposition, which create dynamic and spatially heterogeneous habitats that support a high diversity of species.
