  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Topographic controls of drought impact on Swedish primary forests

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Johanna Asch; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical geography; ecosystem analysis; primary forest; boreal forest; drought impact; topography; drainage; climate change; random forest; terrain index; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic climate change has increased the frequency of extreme drought events and leads to “hotter” droughts. Topography controls plant available water and site-specific climatic conditions. Drought sensitivity may therefore vary over short distances between wet and dry locations of the landscape. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamics of streamflow and stream chemistry in a Swiss pre-Alpine headwater catchment : A fine scale investigation of flow occurrence and electrical conductivity in the temporary streams in the lower Studibach catchment

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära; Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Elise Baumann; Hanna Berglund; [2021]
    Keywords : Temporary Streams; Pre-Alpine Catchment; Streamflow; Stream Chemistry; Fine Scale Investigation; Electrical-conductivity; Stream Mapping; Temporära bäckar; Pre-Alpina avrinningsområden; Bäckflöden; Vattenkemi; Finskalig undersökning; Elektrisk konduktivitet; Bäck-kartering;

    Abstract : Temporary streams and their dynamics have often been largely overseen in hydrological research and there is relatively little knowledge about how the occurrence of flow in these streams varies temporally and spatially. Temporary streams are important from a hydro- logical perspective because they affect water quantity and quality in downstream peren- nial reaches, and from an ecological perspective because they provide habitat to unique species.

  4. 4. Multi-scale topography assessment for site-specific drought management in Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Karl Knaebel; [2021]
    Keywords : drought; topography; precision agriculture; Sentinel-2; DSS;

    Abstract : Globally, as well as in Sweden, the occurrence of droughts is expected to increase due to global warming. The drought summer of 2018 revealed the vulnerability of Sweden’s agriculture – with cereal yield losses of up to 50 %. Subsequently, the development of more resilience crop production systems to mitigate future droughts is required. READ MORE

  5. 5. How do African ElephantsUtilize the Landscape DuringWet Season? : A Habitat Connectivity Analysis for Sioma Ngwezi Landscape in Zambia

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Doubt Chibeya; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : How environmental factors influence distribution and persistence of African elephants(Loxodonta africana) is pertinent to policy makers and managers to formulate balanced plansfor different landuse types (i.e. wildlife management, forestry). READ MORE
