  5. 5. Optimizing the design of two-stage ditches to improve nutrient and sediment retention

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Sofia Englund; [2020]
    Keywords : eutrophication; water quality; mitigation measure; two-stage ditch; retention time; water retention; nutrients; sediments; vegetation; terrace; HEC-RAS; Manning’s coefficient; water level; climate change; övergödning; vattenkvalitet; begränsande åtgärd; tvåstegsdike; retentionstid; vattenretention; näringsämnen; sediment; vegetation; terrass; HEC-RAS; Manning’s koefficient; vattennivå; klimatförändring;

    Abstract : Negative effects on water quality are created by eutrophication of the world’s water resources. Mitigation measures have been implemented, but poor improvements in water quality have been observed. Two-stage ditches have the possibility to increase nutrient and sediment retention to reduce eutrophication in receiving water bodies. READ MORE
