  1. 1. Drivers of decomposition across Sphagnum bog margins

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för miljö- och livsvetenskaper (from 2013)

    Author : Emil Nordström; [2022]
    Keywords : Peatlands; tea bag index; edge effects; carbon storage; carbon sequestration; waterlogging; Torvmark; kanteffekter; kollagring; koldioxidbindning;

    Abstract : Peatlands provide multiple ecosystem services, including extensive carbon sequestration and storage, yet many peatlands have been degraded or destroyed. Peatlands carbon storage capacity is connected to inherently low decomposition rates, causing the build-up of organic matter.

  2. 2. Dynamic streams in a pre-alpine catchment

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Andreas Sølberg; [2021-07-12]
    Keywords : Temporary streams; Streamflow; Stream mapping; Pre-Alpine catchment; Stream dynamics; Topographic wetness index; Upslope accumulated area;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to investigate the factors controlling the dynamics of temporary streams, i.e., streams that do not flow throughout the year. Temporary stream hydrology is a relative unexplored scientific field. READ MORE

  3. 3. Riparian buffer zones in agricultural landscapes : Their status today and their future as an ecological tool in Sweden

    University essay from Karlstads universitet

    Author : Mikaela Ignatiou Hadjicharalambous; [2021]
    Keywords : Riparian buffer zones; agriculture lanscapes; ecological tool; streams; kantzoner; lantbrukslandskap; ekologisk vertyg; vattendrag;

    Abstract : The application of intensive farming and cultivation practices, resulting in large-scale modification of the hydrology of streams and rivers and of the natural vegetation, has increased the need to find ways to mitigate the negative impact of this habitat degradation. Suitable design and creation of riparian buffer zones in agriculture areas, is by many considered the best remedial measure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Monitoring wetland cover changes during the past two decades within the protected areas of the Sudd wetland in South Sudan using MODIS data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Charlotta Ruuskanen; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem analysis; MODIS; NDVI; Sudd Wetlands; Wetland Cover Classification; White Nile Hydrology; Armed Herder-Pastoralist Conflict analysis; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The Sudd wetland, situated along the White Nile in the Republic of South Sudan, is recognized internationally for its unique environmental features. The distinctive ecological characteristics have resulted in the creation of numerous nature reserves in efforts to conserve the habitats and ecosystem services provided. READ MORE

  5. 5. Temporal Trends in Dissolved Inorganic Carbon in a Swedish Boreal Catchment

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lukas Rehn; [2021]
    Keywords : Boreal catchments; carbon cycling; carbon dioxide; DIC; headwater streams; Krycklan Catchment Study; trend analysis;

    Abstract : Inland waters are important systems for transforming, storing and transporting carbon along the aquatic continuum, but also by emitting carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) to the atmosphere. In light of the last decades observed increase in dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in many inland waters across the northern hemisphere, a logical question arise whether other aquatic carbon species display similar trends.
