  1. 1. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as a tool for analysis and communications of multidimensional data

    Author : Åke Sivertun; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Geographic Information Systems GIS ; Landscape Ecology; Artificial Drainage; Distributed Models; Environmental Change; Environmental Impact; Environmental Engineering; Landscape History; Drainage Technology; Historical Geography; Multidimensional and Multi-temporal Analysis; Hyperpixel; Colour Coding and Presentation of Multidimensional Data; Geografiska informationssystem;

    Abstract : An integrating approach, including knowledge about whole systems of processes, is essential in order to reach both development and environmental protection goals. In this thesis Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are suggested as a tool to realise such integrated models. READ MORE

  2. 2. Urban drainage and climate change : impact assessment

    Author : Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007), the global mean temperature has increased by 0,7 °C during the last 100 years and, as a consequence, the hydrological cycle has intensified with, for example, more intense rainfall events. As urban drainage systems have been developed over a long period of time and design criteria are based upon climatic characteristics, these changes will affect the systems and the city accordingly.

  3. 3. Geochemical Landscape Analysis for the Risk Assessment of Acid Mine Drainage in a Wetland Environment

    Author : Andrea Szucs; Ulf Qvarfort; Richard Wanty; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Earth sciences; acid mine drainage; environmental geochemistry; landscape; risk assessment; stream; wetland; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Attenuation of acid mine drainage (AMD) metals originating from abandoned mines and waste rock dumps is investigated in this thesis at Slättberg in central Sweden, where acid mine leachate has been discharging for over 70 years into the receiving wetland stream and mire. Risk assessment of AMD and related polluted lands requires a holistic approach that is able to study the complexity of pollution emissions and impacted landscapes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Climate change and urban drainage : future precipitation and hydraulic impact

    Author : Mats Olofsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Increasing global mean temperature influences the hydrologic cycle. In the 21st century, hydrologic change featuring more heavy precipitation events is very likely according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC. This change will have a great impact on urban environments and infrastructures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Total knee arthroplasty : Alternative aspects on fixation, design and postoperative treatment

    Author : Gunnar Adalberth; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Total knee arthroplasty; RSA; migration; all-polyethylene; drainage; cement; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Total knee arthroplasty as a treatment of severe gonarthrosis has become a great success, but tibial component loosening is still a major reason for failure. When total knee arthroplasty was introduced, only all-polyethylene (AP) tibial components were available. READ MORE
