1. Approaching sustainable stormwater management : investigating the hydrologic cycle for sustainable landscape designMaster-uppsats, SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)
Sammanfattning : The global population is known to be increasing, by which urbanisation is expanding and demanding more space. Many issues occur through the spreading of impermeable surface in which some of the more pressuring compartments lie within hydrology, such as access to freshwater, spread of pollution and flooding.

2. Effects of altered precipitation regimes on bryophyte carbon dynamics in a Peruvian tropical montane cloud forestMaster-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
Sammanfattning : Tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) are unique ecosystems that are frequently surrounded by clouds which increase humidity and promote the growth of bryophytes. Several dimensions of humidity are important for the carbon dynamics of bryophytes. Climate change is therefore projected to have a large impact on them as well as on the TMCF itself. LÄS MER
3. Flood Visualization for Urban Planning : An exploratory spatiotemporal visualization of storm water runoff in 2D and 3DKandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för Industriell utveckling, IT och Samhällsbyggnad
Sammanfattning : Modelling hydrologic processes is important for understanding how the water cycle works in different environments. Cities which undergo constant changes are subject to flood hazards resulting from severe rainfall. LÄS MER
- Master-uppsats, KTH/Mark- och vattenteknik
Sammanfattning : Currently there are urgent water related problems, such as use of groundwater and surface water resources, which need a more integrated view on the hydraulic cycle and how the different processes interact with each other. This has led to new ways of thinking in management of watersheds, which sparked the creation of new integrated tools for flow characterization. LÄS MER
- Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi
Sammanfattning : An increased global food demand requires an increase in agricultural land use, which in turn affects the hydrologic cycle. A central process in this regard is infiltration of rainfall through the land surface. While there are standard values available for different soil types, land cover also has a documented influence on infiltration rates. LÄS MER
