  1. 1. Approaching sustainable stormwater management : investigating the hydrologic cycle for sustainable landscape design

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Författare :Angelica Gyllenbäck; [2019]
    Nyckelord :hydrologic cycle; sustainability; stormwater management; urban; Augustenborg; Tåsinge Plads; Benthemplein Square;

    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. 2. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.

  3. 3. Effects of altered precipitation regimes on bryophyte carbon dynamics in a Peruvian tropical montane cloud forest

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Jenny Ahlstrand; [2016]
    Nyckelord :precipitation; tropical mountain cloud forest; Bryophytes; Peru; carbon dynamics; physical geography and ecosystem science; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    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

  4. 4. Flood Visualization for Urban Planning : An exploratory spatiotemporal visualization of storm water runoff in 2D and 3D

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Gävle/Avdelningen för Industriell utveckling, IT och Samhällsbyggnad

    Författare :Christopher Stanley; [2016]
    Nyckelord :GIS Visusalization; Hydrological modeling; Spatiotemporal visualization;

    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

  5. 5. Integrated hydrologic flow characterization of the Krycklan catchment (Sweden).

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Mark- och vattenteknik

    Författare :Elin Jutebring Sterte; [2016]
    Nyckelord :Krycklan; MIKE-SHE; Integrated Model; Groundwater; Surface water;

    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
