The study illustrates that strategy processes in companies are processes of self-understanding. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Spatial Distribution of Precipitation in Scania, Southern Sweden. Observations, model simulations and statistical downscaling

    Author : Maj-Lena Linderson; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi; Geology; statistical downscaling; atmospheric circulation; spatial distribution; precipitation; Scania; Sweden;

    Abstract : This thesis focusses on the spatial distribution of precipitation within Scania and on its relation with large-scale climate. The spatial distribution of Scanian precipitation was analysed using a dense rain-gauge network of daily measurements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Relationships between Atmospheric Circulation and Wind Erosion in Southern Sweden and Australia

    Author : Marie Ekström; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi; Physical geography; geomorphology; Geologi; fysisk geografi; physical geography; Geology; sea level pressure; atmospheric circulation; erosivity; wind erosion; wind climatology; Scania; Australia;

    Abstract : Wind erosion is a serious threat to soil resources as it causes depletion of the fine fractions that may result in a less fertile soil. Wind erosion encompasses several processes of which many are related to climate variables. To date, there is little work performed on how wind erosion relates to climate and climate change.

  5. 5. Nutrient cycling in agroecosystems: nitrogen cycling in southern Sweden in the 1850s and two Tanzanian villages in the 1990s

    Author : Lars-Erik Williams; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nutrient; nutrient model; nutrient cycling; nitrogen fixation; nitrogen budget; mixed system; miombo; manure; livestock; land use; historical system; food production; efficiency; crops; agroecosystem; carrying capacity; phosphorus; Scania; sustainability; Plant ecology; Växtekologi;

    Abstract : This study presents a general model for analysing nutrient cycling in agroecosystems. The focus is on food production intensity, human carrying capacity, sustainability and efficiency. The model can be used on systems including different kinds of land uses, which makes it applicable for studies on different scales. READ MORE
