Exploring creative geographies : urban art and the cultural uses of public spaces
(Turun yliopisto, 2018-04-03)
In this thesis, I study various kinds of creative, artistic, and cultural activities that take place in the public spaces of cities. I focus on the ways in which public spaces constitute opportunities for art and culture, ...
Creative landscapes : events at sites of encounter
(Turun yliopisto, 2018-10-23)
In this dissertation, I study the concept of creative landscape by exploring the concept of landscape and event philosophy side by side. I have conceptualized creative landscape as part of my dissertation process. By way ...
From Tibet to India and further : transit journeys and onward-migration aspirations of tibetan-born Tibetans in Dharamsala
(Turun yliopisto, 2019-06-05)
In this PhD dissertation, I explore the migratory settings, processes and aspirations of the Tibetans who have migrated from Tibet via Nepal to Dharamsala, a town in the Indian Himalayas. The main overall research questions ...
New insights into the sedimentological-geophysical research of interlobate glaciofluvial complexes in western Finland
(Turun yliopisto, 2019-06-06)
Interlobate eskers are the largest esker landforms in Finland. They formed in complex depositional conditions during the deglaciation of the Scandinavian ice sheet ca. 10 000 years ago. Their deposits can be 100 m thick, ...
Fluvial Processes and Their Future Magnitudes: Combined Field Observation and Simulation Approaches
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 270, 2012-07-14)
Fluvio-morphological processes of meander bends - Combining conventional field measurements, close-range remote sensing and computational modelling
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 298, 2015-02-21)
Meandering rivers have been perceived to evolve rather similarly around the world independently of the location or size of the river. Despite the many consistent processes and characteristics they have also been noted to ...
Meat consumption as a wicked problem : evidence from data and policies
(Turun yliopisto, 2017-12-14)
Sustainable food production and consumption is fundamental to the achievement of the worldwide UN Sustainable Development Goals. For a food system to be sustainable, it needs to provide adequate nutrition and food security ...
Modeling the spatial and temporal trends of water quality in boreal managed watersheds
(Turun yliopisto, 2017-12-08)
Land use changes have altered natural hydrological pathways and biogeochemical cycling of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus, among other elements, affecting the quality of aquatic ecosystems such as rivers, lakes and coastal ...
Geographical Studies of Underwater Light Dynamics in the Coastal Archipelago of SW Finland, Baltic Sea
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 314, 2016-05-13)
The underwater light field is an important environmental variable as it, among other things, enables aquatic primary production. Although the portion of solar radiation that is referred to as visible light penetrates water, ...
Remote sensing for three-dimensional modelling of hydromorphology
(Turun yliopistoAnnales Universitatis Turkuensis A II 302, 2015-05-23)
Successful management of rivers requires an understanding of the fluvial processes that govern them. This, in turn cannot be achieved without a means of quantifying their geomorphology and hydrology and the spatio-temporal ...
