  1. 1. Kinh Settlers in Viet Nam’s Northern Highlands Natural Resources Management in a Cultural Context

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mats Lundberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Viet Nam; northern mountains; highlands; wet rice agriculture; upland agriculture; shifting cultivation; natural resources use; local knowledge; culture; ethnicity; Naturresurser; Vietnam; etniska grupper; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : This study deals with the Kinh (or Viet) majority people who have migrated from the lowland Red River Delta to the mountainous areas of northern Viet Nam, and their adjustment to a new social and physical environment. Its aim is to analyse the social and cultural consequences for these migrants when settling in communities populated with people who belong to the national ethnic minorities (the Tày, the Giay and the Ngan peoples).

  2. 2. Dispersal and environmental impact of contaminants in organic rich, fibrous sediments of industrial origin in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Earth Sciences

    Author : Anna Apler; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fiberbank; fiber-rich sediments; metals; persistent organic pollutants; pore water; bottom water; dispersal; sorption; pulp and paper; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : The health of the Baltic Sea is negatively affected by hazardous substances such as metals and persistent organic pollutants (POPs), which include legacy pollutants that were banned decades ago, but still circulate in the ecosystem. Elevated levels of legacy pollutants, identified by HELCOM as key hazardous substances, have been found in accumulations of fibrous sediments, so-called fiberbanks and fiber-rich sediments, which derive from old pulp mills along the Swedish north coast.

  5. 5. World oil supply and unconventional resources Bottom-up perspectives on tight oil production

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Earth Sciences

    Author : Henrik Wachtmeister; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
