  1. 1. The intraspecific drought tolerance of Betula pendula Roth. : ecotypic aptitude as tree selection criteria for the urban landscape

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2021]
    Keywords : Betula pendula; clinal variation; drought tolerance; ecosystem services; ecotypes; potential evapotranspiration; turgor loss point; urban forestry; urban resilience; urban tree selection;

    Abstract : The ecosystem services provided by urban trees are substantial contributors to the quality of urban living, and their environmentally regulating capabilities are increasingly regarded as integral in order to efficiently secure urban resilience, by ameliorating the human and material impacts of extreme weather events. However, current trends of urban development presents challenges of how to preserve urban greenery ecosystem functioning, particularly in light of the ongoing climate change; which also has brought forth the importance of taxonomically diverse urban forests, to mitigate risks of catastrophic tree loss associated with these conditions.

  2. 2. Application of HEC-HMS modelling on River Storån,Model evaluation and analysis of the processes by using soil moisture accounting loss method

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Pooja Makki Vijayaprakash; [2021]
    Keywords : River Storån; HEC-HMS; SMA; streamflow; baseflow; evapotranspiration; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : River Storån, a major tributary of Lake Bolmen which is a source of fresh water to Skåne county of Sweden is found to alter the color of water in the lake due to the presence of natural organic matter. Hence it is of utmost importance to study the river to understand the dynamics of generation and flow of water from the river to the lake. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of aquifer on Ingarö island : A Steady-State model

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Magnus Dahlberg; [2020]
    Keywords : GMS; MODFLOW; GIS; RCP; climate change; archipelago; esker; glaciofluvial soil;

    Abstract : Värmdö municipality, in the archipelago of Stockholm, has one of Sweden’s fastest growing populations and is a popular location for tourism and summer houses. This puts a lot of pressure on groundwater reservoirs and will likely be even more strained in the future as the climate continues to heat up due to anthropogenic activities. READ MORE

  4. 4. The temporal impacts of climate condition on groundwater flow using numerical transient modelling

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik
