    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Simon Lindroth [formerly Tyrberg]; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; Measurement systems; Marine technology; Energy conversion; Renewable energy; Energy absorption; Wave resource; Oceanic engineering; Linear generators; Point absorbers; Sea trials; Camera systems; Accelerometers; Offshore experiments; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : On March 13th, 2006, the Division of Electricity at Uppsala University deployed its first wave energy converter, L1, in the ocean southwest of Lysekil. L1 consisted of a buoy at the surface, connected through a line to a linear generator on the seabed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Digital technologies as support for learning about the marine environment: Steps toward ocean literacy Digital technologies and ocean literacy

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Geraldine Fauville; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; digital technologies; social media; ocean literacy; communication; science education; environmental education; sociocultural theory;

    Abstract : Over the last century the ocean has been negatively impacted by human activities. In order to continue benefitting from marine services and goods, and the qualities afforded to human life through the ocean, citizens need to be informed about their relationship to the ocean and their own impact on it, that is they need to be ocean literate.

  3. 3. Interaction of Segments along Rifts that Separate Continents and Ridges that Spread Ocean Floors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tatiana Tentler; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; extension; oceanic floor; rift; normal fault; segment; interaction; propagation; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : The face of the Earth is constantly renewed by continental rifts that open and allow ridges to spread oceanic floor. Both types of these linear extensional structures are morphologically and structurally segmented. This thesis aims to provide insights into the interaction of such segments as they propagate and mature. READ MORE

  4. 4. Architecture and Applications of a Geovisual Analytics Framework

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Quan Ho; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; GeoVisual Analytics; toolkits; frameworks; web-enabled; visualization; interactive visualizations; interaction; interaction techniques; visual data analysis; component architecture; storytelling;

    Abstract : The large and ever-increasing amounts of multi-dimensional, multivariate, multi-source, spatio-temporal data represent a major challenge for the future. The need to analyse and make decisions based on these data streams, often in time-critical situations, demands integrated, automatic and sophisticated interactive tools that aid the user to manage, process, visualize and interact with large data spaces.

  5. 5. Implementation and Analysis of Air-Sea Exchange Processes in Atmosphere and Ocean Modelling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Björn Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sensible heat flux; Latent heat flux; Momentum flux; Wind stress; Marine boundary layer; Air–Sea interaction; Swell; Climate model; Ocean model; Roughness parameter; Drag coefficient; Wave breaking; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi;

    Abstract : To understand and to predict the weather and climate, numerical models are important tools and it is crucial that the controlling processes are described correctly. Since 70% of the global surface is covered with water the description how the ocean and atmosphere communicates has a considerable impact. READ MORE
