  1. 1. Social learning in the Anthropocene Governance of natural resources in human dominated systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Systems Ecology, Stockholm University

    Author : Björn Nykvist; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; social learning; multi-level governance; resilience; adaptability; natural resource management; institutions; policy making; impact assessments; naturresurshushållning; Natural Resources Management;

    Abstract : We live in the Anthropocene – an age where humans dominate natural systems – and there is ample evidence that our current practices degrade the capacity of natural systems to provide us with natural resources. How we, as humans, organize and learn, in communities and among state and other societal actors, constitute a decisive factor for both local management of natural resources and the functioning of the planet Earth.

  2. 2. Convergence in mixed reality-virtuality environments facilitating natural user behavior

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Daniel Johansson; Örebro universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mixed reality. augmented reality; augmented virtuality; head mounted display; omnidirectional floor; natural interface; telepresence; Computer and Systems Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the subject of converging real and virtual environments to a combined entity that can facilitate physiologically complying interfaces for the purpose of training. Based on the mobility and physiological demands of dismounted soldiers, the base assumption is that greater immersion means better learning and potentially higher training transfer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of the Fletcher-Gent effect and obtaining hyperelastic parameters for filled elastomers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rickard Österlöf; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; filled elastomers; natural rubber; carbon black; Fletcher-Gent effect; Payne-effect; finite strain; hyperelastic;

    Abstract : The strain amplitude dependency , i.e. the Fletcher-Gent effect and Payne effect, and the strain rate dependency of rubber with reinforcing fillers is modelled using a modified boundary surface model and implemented uniaxially. READ MORE

  4. 4. Organizational Lessons Learned Natural Hazards Affecting Critical Infrastructure

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Monika Rydstedt Nyman; Karlstads universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; natural hazards; critical infrastructure; feedback; lessons learned; collective learning; memory building; Risk and Environmental Studies; Risk- och Miljöstudier;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on an issue often presented as a solution – albeit a debated one ­– namely learning, specifically lessons learned from natural hazard events. Empirically, this thesis examines flooding and avalanches in a Swedish context, centering on systematic feedback mechanisms and learning from extreme events. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geographical Distribution of Disasters Caused by Natural Hazards in Data-scarce Areas Methodological exploration on the Samala River catchment, Guatemala

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Agnes Jane Soto Gómez; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; natural disasters; Guatemala; data-scarce areas; natural disaster science methods; natural disaster maps; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi;

    Abstract : An increasing trend in both the number of disasters and affected people has been observed, especially during the second half of the 20th century. The physical, economic and social impact that natural hazards have had on a global scale has prompted an increasing interest of governments, international institutions and the academia. READ MORE
