  1. 1. Cryptic Orogeny uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains at an alleged passive margin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Reuben Johannes Hansman; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uplift; mountains; structural; low-temperature; thermochronology; dating; fission-track; U-Th He; U-Pb; calcite; structure-from-motion; photogrammetry; UAV; trishear; fault-propagation; Hafit; Al Hajar Mountains; United Arab Emirates; Oman; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Mountains evolve and grow because of the large forces that occur from the collision of tectonic plates. Plate boundaries change and move through time, and regions that were once stable, shallow-marine environments can be dragged into subduction zones and get transformed into vast mountain ranges.

    Abstract : This study deals with the Kinh (or Viet) majority people who have migrated from the lowland Red River Delta to the mountainous areas of northern Viet Nam, and their adjustment to a new social and physical environment. Its aim is to analyse the social and cultural consequences for these migrants when settling in communities populated with people who belong to the national ethnic minorities (the Tày, the Giay and the Ngan peoples).

  3. 3. Relict non-glacial surfaces and autochthonous blockfields in the northern Swedish mountains

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Bradley W. Goodfellow; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; blockfield; chemical weathering; cosmogenic exposure dating; glaciated landscape; northern Sweden; periglacial geomorphology; relict surface; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; geografi med naturgeografisk inriktning; Geography; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Relict non-glacial surfaces occur in many formerly glaciated landscapes, where they represent areas that have escaped significant glacial modification. Frequently distinguished by blockfield mantles, relict non-glacial surfaces are important archives of long-term weathering and landscape evolution processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Carved Mountains and Moving Stones applications of Near Infrared Spectroscopy for Mineral Characterisation in Provenance Studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Claudia Sciuto; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Raw materials; mineral characterization; material agency; Near Infrared spectroscopy; hyperspectral imaging; Energy-Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence; multivariate statistics;

    Abstract : The study of stone artefacts is a combination of anthropological archaeology and geology, rooted in analytical techniques for determining the materials’ composition, typological stylistic classification and interpretation of cultural patterns. In this thesis, the archaeology of materials is considered in the context of sites- and landscape transformation, economic history and development of techniques. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mountain centered icefields in northern Scandinavia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Abstract : Mountain centered glaciers have played a major role throughout the last three million years in the Scandinavian mountains. The climatic extremes, like the present warm interglacial or cold glacial maxima, are very short-lived compared to the periods of intermediate climate conditions, characterized by the persistence of mountain based glaciers and ice fields of regional size.
