  1. 1. The role and use of water in agriculture in the Western Balkans: the case of Macedonia

    University dissertation from ; Department of Economics, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Jordan Hristov; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the role and demand for water in Macedonia from an economic perspective with an emphasis on agricultural use. The first paper provides an overview of the Macedonian agricultural sector and assesses the productivity growth in the period 1999-2010. In the study period, the sector experienced an average increase in volume of 1. READ MORE

  3. 3. Greenhouse gas emissions from rewetted extracted peatlands in Sweden

    University dissertation from ; Department of Soil and Environment, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Sabine Jordan; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Peat extraction for horticultural purposes and energy production has a long tradition in Northern Europe. Related drainage activities directly affect the greenhouse gas (GHG) balance due to oxidative peat decomposition and denitrification, with concomitant emissions of carbon dioxide (CO₂) and nitrous oxide (N₂O). Rewetting, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical modelling of highly swirling flows in a cylindrical through-flow hydrocyclone

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jordan Ko; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology; Hydrocyclone; fractionation; turbulence modelling; swirl flow; fluent; CFX; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Three-dimensional turbulent flow in a cylindrical hydrocyclone is considered and studied by means of computational fluid dynamics using software packages CFX and Fluent. The aim has been to identify the methods that can be used for accurate simulation of the flow in three-dimensional configurations in hydrocyclones at high swirl numbers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Situated Embodiment : Studies in the emergence of spatial meaning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Jordan Zlatev; Stockholms universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap; General Linguistics; allmän språkvetenskap;

    Abstract : What does it mean to know a language? How do children acquire language, seemingly spontaneously? How is intersubjective linguistic meaning made possible? How are people able to understand utterances which they have not heard before? General questions such as these are of primal concern for modem theoretical linguistics. At the same time the dominant theoretical approach to answering them, generativism, has given rise to persistent anomalies and confusions. READ MORE
