  1. 1. Improving stream flow estimation in a montane rainforest stream in Costa Rica : The impact of adding a high flow estimation

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Martin Dahlin; [2022]
    Keywords : Streamflow information; Manning s estimation; rating curve; hydrographs; Vattenföring; avbördningskurva; hydrograf; Mannings ekvation;

    Abstract : A key piece of information necessary for water management is accurate streamflow information. However, the available data and resources for gathering information vary around the world. READ MORE

  2. 2. An evaluation of deep learning models for urban floods forecasting

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Yang Mu; [2022]
    Keywords : Urban flooding forecasting; Convolutional neural networks; Deep learning; Physically-based simulation; Recurrent neural network; Stadsöversvämningsprognoser; konvolutionella neurala nätverk; djupinlärning; fysiskt baserad simulering; återkommande neurala nätverk;

    Abstract : Flood forecasting maps are essential for rapid disaster response and risk management, yet the computational complexity of physically-based simulations hinders their application for efficient high-resolution spatial flood forecasting. To address the problems of high computational cost and long prediction time, this thesis proposes to develop deep learning neural networks based on a flood simulation dataset, and explore their potential use for flood prediction without learning hydrological modelling knowledge from scratch.

  3. 3. A Nonlinear Reservoir Model to Simulate Blue-Green Stormwater Systems – An Application to Augustenborg Catchment in Malmö, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Emmanuel Ekwu; [2021]
    Keywords : Blue-green stormwater control; Nonlinear reservoir routing model; Stormwater; Modelling; Calibration; Water engineering; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The increasingly rapid urbanization has led to vast impervious surface areas in the urban environment. This situation of impervious surfaces has increased the surface temperature and interrupted the natural water circle, which has negatively impacted the urban environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Digitizing and Mapping Channel Heads Across Various Forested Regions in Sweden Using a High-Resolution DEM : A Regional Analysis of How Landscape Properties Influencing Channel Head Initiation

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Amanda Jarefjäll; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Acting as a hydrological link between the terrestrial landscape and the larger downstream river network, channel heads and their immediate headwaters are essential geomorphological features in our landscape. Not only due to their ability to transport water and sediment and cycling of nutrients, but as an important component for ecosystem productivity and aquatic habitats. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geological characterisation of geophysical lineaments as part of the expanded site descriptive model around the planned repository site for high-level nuclear waste, Forsmark, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Aron Bakker; [2021]
    Keywords : Forsmark; deformation zones; Svecokarelian; Sveconorwegian; ductile-brittle transition; brittle deformation; mylonite; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co. (SKB) started a project in 2020 near Forsmark, Sweden with the aim to expand the deformation zone model to encompass the entire catchment area around the planned repository for spent nuclear fuel. READ MORE
