  1. 1. Spatial patterns of Dissolved Organic Matter in Swedish Surface Waters

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

    Author : Anna Lackner; [2022]
    Keywords : Dissolved Organic Matter; Brownification; Digital Mapping; Soil Moisture; Stream Length;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic matter (DOM) in surface water has been widely studied, in part due to its significance for aquatic ecology and drinking water quality. Across Sweden, increases in the total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations and color of surface waters, known as brownification, were noted in the decades before and after year 2000, though recent analysis has found widespread DOM increase to have ceased after 2010.

  2. 2. Influence of Wastewater DOM Fractions on the Adsorption of Pharmaceuticals onto Activated Carbon

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Koustubh Karande; [2022]
    Keywords : Wastewater treatment; Dissolved organic matter; Pharmaceuticals; Activated carbon; Hydrophobicity; Molecular weight; Water resources engineering; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Micropollutants in our sources of freshwater is an issue which requires immediate attention. The presence of pharmaceuticals, endocrine disrupting agents, pesticides and other harmful compounds have proven to have impact on the aquatic as well as on human life. READ MORE

  3. 3. As I live and breathe! : The effects of hypolimnic oxygenation on benthic macroinvertebrate and zooplankton assemblages

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

    Author : Rashid Kadhim; [2022]
    Keywords : lake hypoxia; benthic macroinvertebrates; chironomids; zooplankton;

    Abstract : Exacerbated deep-water hypoxia, brought about by anthropogenic-derived dissolved organic carbon (DOC) input, has potentially detrimental impacts on organisms residing in freshwater ecosystems. Oxygenation of the water column is a potential management strategy to mitigate this impact, and used to alleviate DOC induced oxygen depletion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling the Effects of Climate Change on Future DOC Export to Lake Mälaren Using a Generalized Watershed Loading Functions (GWLF) Model

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Klara Lindqvist; [2022]
    Keywords : Hydrology; DOC; browning; climate change; drinking water production; Mälaren; Hydrologi; DOC; brunifiering; klimatförändringar; dricksvattenproduktion; Mälaren;

    Abstract : Browning of boreal freshwaters due to an increased export of terrestrial dissolved organic carbon (DOC) has been observed for some decennia. Drivers include recovery from acid deposition and changing climate and land cover. READ MORE

  5. 5. Estimation of dissolved organic carbon from inland waters using remote sensing data and machine learning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lasse Harkort; [2022]
    Keywords : dissolved organic carbon; machine learning; remote sensing; inland waters; water quality; open source data; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the first attempt to estimate Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) in inland waters over a large-scale area using satellite data and machine learning (ML) methods. Four ML approaches, namely Random Forest Regression (RFR), Support Vector Regression (SVR), Gaussian Process Regression (GPR), and a Multilayer Backpropagation Neural Network (MBPNN) were tested to retrieve DOC using a filtered version of the recently published open source AquaSat dataset with more than 16 thousand samples across the continental US matched with satellite data from Landsat 5, 7 and 8 missions.
