    Abstract : This thesis, within the subfield of computer science known as computer vision, deals with the use of scale-space analysis in early low-level processing of visual information. The main contributions comprise the following five subjects:The formulation of a scale-space theory for discrete signals. READ MORE

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Parameterisation; runoff generation; routing; WASMOD-M; hydrography; data uncertainty; topographic index; scale; river network; response function; HydroSHEDS; HYDRO1k; Dongjiang basin; Parametrisering; avrinningsbildning; flödessvarstid; WASMOD-M; hydrografi; topografiskt index; dataosäkerhet; skala; flödesnät; svarstidssfunktion; HYDRO1k; HydroSHEDS; Dongjiang; Hydrology; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Water has always had a controlling influence on the earth’s evolution. Understanding and modelling the large-scale hydrological cycle is important for climate prediction and water-resources studies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Borehole sealing with expandable buffer clays in HLW disposal : Lab-scale performance

    Author : Ting Yang; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil Mechanics; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Two basically different multibarrier concepts for high-level radioactive waste (HLW) are the often cited KBS-3 V/H concepts, for isolating nuclear waste at 400-600 m depth and Very Deep Boreholes concepts (VDH) for placement at 2000-4000 m depth. Both make use of expandable clay as isolating medium of canisters with HLW and as backfill material in shafts and tunnels in repositories for safe disposal of such waste. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aspects of Ash Transformations in Pressurised Entrained-Flow Gasification of Woody Biomass : Pilot-scale studies

    Author : Charlie Ma; Marcus Öhman; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; woody biomass; gasification; ash transformation; slag behaviour; refractory corrosion; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Pressurised entrained-flow gasification (PEFG) of woody biomass has the potential to produce high purity syngas for the production of vital chemicals, e.g., biofuels. However, ash-related issues such as reactor blockages and refractory corrosion need to be addressed before this potential can be realised from a technical perspective. READ MORE

  5. 5. Landscape from space : geographical aspects on scale, regionalization and change detection

    Author : Ola Hall; Risto Kalliola; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Regionalization; Scale; Change detection; Multiscale analysis; Objectspecific analysis; Watershed transformation; Landscape; Satellite data; Geography; Complex systems theory; Fuzzy set theory; Multicriteria-evaluation.; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : Landscapes are complex systems composed of multiscale hierarchically organized entities that interact within unique spatial and temporal scales. These interactions result in scaledependent spatial patterns that visually change depending upon the scale at which they are observed. READ MORE
