  1. 1. Vegetation changes on Swedish mires Effects of raised temperature and increased nitrogen and sulphur influx

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Gunnarsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Acidification; growth; long-term studies; mires; nitrogen; species richness; Sphagnum; succession; sulphur; temperature; Utvecklingsbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Abstract : Since the start of the industrialisation, the deposition of nitrogen and sulphur and the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased. The main objectives of this study were to find how these changes in climate and deposition can change the vegetation of mire ecosystems and the growth of Sphagnumspecies. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to develop better understanding of the relationship between microclimate and urban design in the hot dry city of Damascus. This is done by studying the impact of urban regulations on microclimate in different urban design patterns in modern Damascus. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multitemporal Remote Sensing for Urban Mapping using KTH-SEG and KTH-Pavia Urban Extractor

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alexander Jacob; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; KTH-SEG; ASAR; HJ-1B; Urban Land Cover Mapping; OBIA; Segmentation; Image Classification; KTH-Pavia Urban Extractor; Urban Extent; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik;

    Abstract : The objective of this licentiate thesis is to develop novel algorithms and improve existing methods for urban land cover mapping and urban extent extraction using multi-temporal remote sensing imagery. Past studies have demonstrated that synthetic aperture radar (SAR) have very good properties for the analysis of urban areas, the synergy of SAR and optical data is advantageous for various applications.
