  1. 1. Terrain Modelling with GIS for Tectonic Geomorphology Numerical Methods and Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gyözö Jordan; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; digital elevation model; digital terrain modelling; GIS; morphometry; tectonic geomorphology; Miljöteknik; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Analysis of digital elevation models (DEMs) by means of geomorphometry provides means of recognising fractures and characterising the morphotectonics of an area in a quantitative way. The objective of the thesis is to develop numerical methods and a consistent GIS methodology for tectonic geomorphology and apply it to test sites. READ MORE

  2. 2. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Markus Lundkvist; Lennart Strömquist; Christer Jonasson; Rolf Nyberg; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Marginal behaviour of the last Scandinavian Ice Sheet during its final termination and deglaciation over Northeastern Germany

    University dissertation from Quaternary Sciences, Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Joachim Albrecht; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; climatology; cartography; pedology; geomorphology; Physical geography; Marginal dome; Deglaciation; Clast lithology; Clast fabric; Germany; Pomeranian; Weichselian; Lithostratigraphy; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi; Sedimentology; Sedimentologi;

    Abstract : This thesis presents results from studies on geomorphology, lithostratigraphy and ice flow patterns during the final termination and deglaciation of the last Scandinavian Ice Sheet in NE Germany. Ice flow patterns derived from till fabrics and glaciotectonical data indicate that short-lived marginal domes had formed during the advance and the retreat of the last Scandinavian Ice Sheet in NE Germany.

  4. 4. The sensitivity of Swedish alpine lakes to hydro-climatic changes during the Late Holocene

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Annika Berntsson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Peter G. Langdon; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; alpine lake sediments; temperature reconstruction; precipitation; catchment erosion; chironomids; oxygen isotopes; XRF core scanning; geomorphology; grain size analysis; Quaternary Geology; kvartärgeologi;

    Abstract : The thesis objective is to use lake sediments to investigate the relationships between chironomids, as proxy for temperature, and δ18O and minerogenic in-wash, as precipitation proxies, in northern Sweden during the Late Holocene. Three lakes along a N–S transect in the Scandes were studied using biological, geochemical and physical sediment properties, together with numerical methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Remote Sensing and GIS Applications for Groundwater Potential Assessment in Eritrea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Byggvetenskap

    Author : Semere Solomon; [2003]
    Keywords : Remote sensing; Geographic Information Systems; groundwater; geomorphology; Digital elevation model; lithology; hard rock; lineament; structures; hydrogeology; Eritrea;

    Abstract : An integrated approach with remote sensing, GeographicInformation Systems (GIS) and more traditional fieldworktechniques was adopted to assess the groundwater potential inthe central highlands of Eritrea. Digitally enhanced colorcomposites and panchromatic images of Landsat TM and Spot wereinterpreted to produce thematic maps such as lithology andlineaments. READ MORE
