  1. 1. Sources of dioxins and other POPs to the marine environment Identification and apportionment using pattern analysis and receptor modeling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Kristina Sundqvist; Karin Wiberg; Mats Tysklind; Paul Geladi; Miriam Diamond; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; air-water gas exchange; chiral; congener pattern; enantiomer; enantiomeric fraction; fugacity; HCH; hexachlorocyclohexane; homologue profile; indicator congener; isomer pattern; pattern analysis; PCA; PCB; PCDD F; PMF; polychlorinated dibenzofuran; polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin; polychlorinated biphenyl; positive matrix factorization; principal component analysis; receptor modeling; source apportioning; source; source tracing; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry Persistent organic compounds; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi Persistenta organiska föreningar;

    Abstract : In the studies underlying this thesis, various source tracing techniques were applied to environmental samples from the Baltic region.Comprehensive sampling and analysis of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) in surface sediments in Swedish coastal and offshore areas resulted in a unique data set for this region.

  2. 2. Patterns of co-presence Spatial configuration and social segregation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ann Legeby; Lars Marcus; Laura Vaughan; Daniel Koch; Julienne Hanson; [2013]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; co-presence; spatial configuration; public space; urban segregation; urban design; public life; spatial affordance;

    Abstract : This thesis notes that there is a lack of systematic research investigating segregation patterns based on how public space is used and frequented by citizens. In order for understanding of urban segregation to reach beyond residential segregation, the extent to which public space facilitates co-presence between social groups is a key issue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Surface patterns, spatiality and pattern relations in textile design

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Tonje Kristensen Johnstone; [2017]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Surface patterns; textile design; spatiality; spatial definers; design variables; pattern relations; conceptual spatial determinations; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis focuses on surface patterns, spatiality, and pattern relations in textile design, and aims to explore surface patterns as spatial definers and what they mean in the context of surface patterns. A secondary focus relates to applying conceptual spatial determinations as alternative design variables in design processes, and exploring how these could be used to define and analyse pattern relations.

  4. 4. From pattern to process : Studies on limestone grassland, with emphasis on the bryophyte-lichen layer and its effects on vascular plants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manuela Zamfir; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Alvar; Bryophytes; Carousel model; Community structure; Competition; Dynanmics; Interactions; Lichens; PASFRAN; pattern analysis; Sweden; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; ekologisk botanik; Ecological Botany;

    Abstract : Patterns in space and time at different scales in the bryophyte-lichen layer, aud multi-species spatial patterns of bryophytes, lichens and vascular plants were studied in Avenetum limestone grassland on the Great Alvar of the Baltic Island of Öland, south-eastem Sweden.Spatiotemporal patterns of bryophytes and Iichens in grazed and ungrazed alvar grassland demonstrated that dominant species forming large patches were relatively stable in time, whereas less frequent species forming small patches were more mobile.

  5. 5. Hedonic prices, economic growth, and spatial dependence

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Krister Sandberg; Lars Westin; Bernard Fingleton; [2004]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; business and economics; hedonic prices; spatial econometrics; co-operative flats; spatial dependence; SAR-GM; Single-family Homes; Heterogeneity; China; Convergence; Provincial Economic Growth; Ekonomi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi; nationalekonomi; Economics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of three papers on econometric modeling of spatial dependence. The awareness of interactions between actors is fundamental for understanding property markets as well as the growth of regions. In both cases, neighbors and neighboring markets may stimulate or hamper growth of values. READ MORE
