  1. 1. Sustainable development and tourism in a biosphere reserve : A case study of Lake Vänern Archipelago Biosphere Reserve, Sweden

    Author : Fredrik Hoppstadius; Margareta Dahlström; Cecilia Möller; Jarkko Saarinen; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sustainable Development; Sustainable Tourism; Biosphere Reserves; Place; Landscape; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography;

    Abstract : In this thesis I analyse sustainable development by researching tourism in a biosphere reserve. Sustainable development is based on a broad range of environmental, economic and social elements, bound together by the fact that development is limited by boundaries in the environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Morphometric and Landscape Feature Analysis with Artificial Neural Networks and SRTM data : Applications in Humid and Arid Environments

    Author : Amir Houshang Ehsani; Friedrich Quiel; Wolfgang Wagner; KTH; []
    Keywords : Self Organizing Map; Neural Network; Morphometric Feature; Landscape; Yardang; Lut Desert; Potential natural vegetation; geoecosystem; Landform; Landsat ETM ; Morphometric Parameters; SRTM; Resolution; Curvatures; DEM.; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a semi-automatic method to analyze morphometric features and landscape elements based on Self Organizing Map (SOM) as an unsupervised Artificial Neural Network algorithm in two completely different environments: 1) the Man and Biosphere Reserve “Eastern Carpathians” (Central Europe) as a complex mountainous humid area and 2) Lut Desert, Iran, a hyper arid region characterized by repetition of wind-eroded features. In 2003, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released the SRTM/ SIR-C band data with 3 arc seconds (approx. READ MORE
