  1. 1. Excavation in moraine and dense non-cohesive soil : Numerical analysis of soil behavior

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Lindgren; Staffan Hinze; Sigurdur Erlingsson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Excavation; Excavatability; Moraine; Dense non-cohesive soil;

    Abstract : Excavation and moving of soil are common civil work tasks connected to the construction of buildings, roads and railways. In construction projects large amounts of soil have to be handled with different machines, tools and working methods. Soils are more or less difficult to excavate depending on their properties.

  2. 2. Deglaciation pattern and dynamics in the Bolmen area, southwestern Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Quaternary Geology, Lund University

    Author : Gunnar Andersson; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geology; backwasting; Debris flow; Oscillation; Gothenburg moraine; cover moraine; Late Weichselian; hummocky moraine; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : The Late Weichselian deglaciation of an area in southwestern Sweden was reconstructed by geomorphological, sedimentological and lithostratigraphical methods. The morainic deposits were mapped and classified into three landsystems: Streamlined terrain, hummocky moraine and cover moraine. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glaciodynamics, Deglacial Landforms and Isostatic Uplift during the last Deglaciation of Norrbotten, Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Mattias Lindén; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sedimentologi; Sedimentology; Geologi; physical geography; Geology; glaciotectonic; thrust stacking; deforming bed; ribbed moraine; Niemisel moraine; De Geer moraine; isostatic uplift; glaciodynamics; deglaciation; klimatologi; kartografi; marklära; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; geomorphology; cartography; climatology; pedology;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to reconstruct the glaciodynamics, deglacial landforms, isostatic uplift and to date the deglaciation. Glaciodynamics and deglacial landforms were focused on to provide a process and depositional model for De Geer moraine and Niemisel moraine and to reveal their internal and spatial relationship, based on detailed sedimentological and structural investigations.

  4. 4. Predicting surfacing internal erosion in moraine core dams

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Hans Rönnqvist; Anders Wörman; Hans Bergh; Kaare Høeg; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; internal erosion; internal stability; filters; moraine core; embankment dams; sinkholes; internal erosion assessment; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Geoengineering and mining engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Geoteknik och gruvteknik;

    Abstract : Dams that comprise broadly and widely graded glacial materials, such as moraines, have been found to be susceptible to internal erosion, perhaps more than dams of other soil types. Internal erosion washes out fine-grained particles from the filling material; the erosion occurs within the material itself or at an interface to another dam zone, depending on the mode of initiation.

  5. 5. Late Quaternary ice sheet history and dynamics in central and southern Scandinavia

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

    Author : Timothy Johnsen; Helena Alexanderson; James T. Teller; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Scandinavian ice sheet; ice sheet dynamics; luminescence dating; cosmogenic exposure dating; geochronology; moraine; interstadial; deglaciation; nunatak; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Quaternary geology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Kvartärgeologi; Quarternary Geology; kvartärgeologi;

    Abstract : Recent work suggests an emerging new paradigm for the Scandinavian ice sheet (SIS); one of a dynamically fluctuating ice sheet. This doctoral research project explicitly examines the history and dynamics of the SIS at four sites within Sweden and Norway, and provides results covering different time periods of glacial history.
