  1. 1. Hydrological modelling of a recycling facility and landfill

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Mazen Tawfik; [2022]
    Keywords : Parsimonious approach; Lumped modelling; Surface water; Landfill; Leachate water; Storage reservoirs.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A parsimonious lumped model for simulating a catchment composed of a landfill and recycling facility were developed. The modelling results showed an acceptable conformity with the observed values with NSE of 0.54 and R2 of 0.56 in hourly simulations, though the results were characterized by a general underestimation.

  3. 3. Long-term phosphorus trends in Swedish rivers and streams : widespread and persistent nutrient decline

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment

    Author : Sara Camiolo; [2021]
    Keywords : eutrophication; rivers; streams; phosphorus;

    Abstract : Phosphorus (P) is often considered the limiting nutrient for freshwater productivity because of its relevant role in regulating algal production and determining community composition. The concern for increasing anthropogenic P inputs registered since the last century has shaped environmental policies around the world to limit the effects of algal bloom (also known as eutrophication) in freshwater ecosystems through the establishment of maximum threshold nutrient concentrations.
