  1. 1. Response of glaciers to climate change : Mass balance sensitivity, sea level rise and runoff

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för naturgeografi och kvartärgeologi

    Author : Mattias de Woul; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glacier; mass balance modelling; mass balance sensitivity; sea level rise; glacial runoff; Hofsjökull; Storglaciären; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to enhance our understanding of the response of glaciers to climate change. Global sea level is affected by changes in glacier ice volume, and melt-water from glaciers is a principal water source in many regions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental history in southern Mozambique Reconstruction of flooding events, hydroclimate and sea-level dynamics since mid-Holocene

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Sandra Raúl Sitoe; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Southern Africa; Limpopo River floodplain; flooding event; sea-level change; climate change; diatoms; phytoliths; mineral magnetics; grain-size; radiocarbon dating; Quaternary Geology; kvartärgeologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis has been to reconstruct paleoenvironment, paleohydrology and paleoclimate in coastal southern Mozambique, with emphasis on tracing past flooding events on the lower Limpopo River floodplain. In order to extend flood chronologies beyond periods covered by instrumental data, sediments from lakes on the floodplain were studied (Lake Lungué, Coassane Oxbow, Lake Magandane and Lake Soane).

  3. 3. Late Weichselian and early Holocene changes of vegetation, climate and sea level on the Skagi peninsula, northern Iceland

    University dissertation from Department of Quaternary Geology, Lund University

    Author : Mats Rundgren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; asthenosphere viscosity; glacial loading unloading; marine polar front migrations; sea-level change; climate change; vegetation change; Early Holocene; Late Weichselian; Iceland; Lake sediments; Skagi peninsula; Geology; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Denna avhandling är resultatet av ett doktorandprojekt vid Kvartärgeologiska avdelningen, Lunds Universitet. Syftet med undersökningen var att rekonstruera vegetations-, klimat- och havsnivåförändringar på Skagi-halvön, norra Island, under sen-Weichsel och tidig-Holocen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Post-Glacial History of Sea-Level and Environmental Change in the Southern Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Abstract : A new palaeoenvironmental record of the post-glacial history of the southern Baltic Sea (~14 ka to present) is presented. During this period, large water level and salinity changes occurred in the Baltic Basin due to opening and closing of connections to the North Atlantic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Baltic shore-lands facing climate change

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Alma Strandmark; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arthropod diversity; Baltic shores; Beetles; Climate change; Energy flows; Marine inflow; Sea level rise; Shore ecosystems; Species distribution; Spiders; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis provides new insight concerning drivers behind differences in arthropod diversity and abundance in Baltic shore ecosystems and how the arthropod communities might be affected when the conditions in the Baltic Sea are altered due to climate change.  The focus has been on climate related changes that are unique for coastal ecosystems, especially sea level rise and changes in the inflow of marine nutrients.
