    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Juan Hordenana; [2020]
    Keywords : Sustainable Development; Eutrophication; Mitigation; Best Management Practices; Farmers; BMP adoption;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic eutrophication has become an issue of foremost importance in water bodies all around the globe. Nutrients coming from agricultural activities have been identified as one main contributor to this problem. Technologies and inovations (Best Management Practices, BMPs) have been designed for mitigating agricultural impact on water bodies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbon dioxide dynamics in agricultural streams : Investigation of two streams draining catchments dominated by agricultural land

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

    Author : Albin Bostner; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon dioxide; dynamics; streams; agriculture; oversaturation; metabolic control; hyrdological control; Koldioxid; koldynamik; bäckar; jordbruk; övermättat; metabolisk kontroll; hydrologisk kontroll;

    Abstract : In recent years, streams draining agricultural land has been suggested to exhibit high carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations when compared to streams draining other land-types. The transport of carbon from land to ocean is mainly occurring through the chain of inland waters, and with agricultural land today representing 40% of all continental area many of these inland waters are influenced by agricultural land.

    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE
