    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Kajsa Eriksson; Lovisa Rogbring; [2021-06-30]
    Keywords : Environmental project; Seaweed cultivation; Kelp; Saccharina latissima; Climate change mitigation; Carbon offsetting; Eutrophication mitigation.;

    Abstract : Climate change calls for urgent responsibility, not at least from companies, and limitingactivities is vital to not suppress Earth's systems. Carbon offsetting is a short-term solutionused by companies to lower its environmental impact, but new innovations are needed.Multiple researchers have stated several environmental benefits with seaweed, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Initial nutrient retention capacity in a constructed wetland : Evaluating the effectiveness of a newly constructed wetland to reduce eutrophication symptoms in a Baltic Sea bay in northern Sweden

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Elin Eriksson; [2021]
    Keywords : retention; constructed wetland; total phosphorus; total nitrogen; nutrient dynamics; northern latitudes; nutrient mitigation measure;

    Abstract : Since the turn of the last century, a substantial increase in nutrient load to the Baltic Sea is apparent. Adding the ongoing environmental change with raising temperatures and increased precipitation, this will continue to have a prominent environmental impact on our coastal ecosystems, especially in northern latitudes.

  4. 4. Optimizing the design of two-stage ditches to improve nutrient and sediment retention

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Sofia Englund; [2020]
    Keywords : eutrophication; water quality; mitigation measure; two-stage ditch; retention time; water retention; nutrients; sediments; vegetation; terrace; HEC-RAS; Manning’s coefficient; water level; climate change; övergödning; vattenkvalitet; begränsande åtgärd; tvåstegsdike; retentionstid; vattenretention; näringsämnen; sediment; vegetation; terrass; HEC-RAS; Manning’s koefficient; vattennivå; klimatförändring;

    Abstract : Negative effects on water quality are created by eutrophication of the world’s water resources. Mitigation measures have been implemented, but poor improvements in water quality have been observed. Two-stage ditches have the possibility to increase nutrient and sediment retention to reduce eutrophication in receiving water bodies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Is blue mussel farming a potential mitigation tool to combat eutrophication in the Baltic Sea? A synthesis based on stakeholder interviews

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper
