  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 relativeunexplored scientific field. READ MORE

  2. 2. Death's reflection in the water : Mortuary ritual, ancestral worship and the cosmological significance of water on the island of Gotland during the Pitted Ware culture

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Arkeologi

    Author : Maja Hed; [2021]
    Keywords : ritual; neolithic; grave goods; cosmology; flowing water; divinity; death; Pitted Ware culture; ritual; neolitikum; gravgåvor; kosmologi; rörligt vatten; gudomlighet; död; Gropkeramisk kultur;

    Abstract : The Pitted Ware culture on Gotland presents a multitude of material that allow archeologists to re-construct and visit the socio-economic structure of a middle-neolithic settlement in the Baltic sea. I will be analyzing the archaeological material in accordance to the ocean, and to what we can interpret as ritual and cosmological variables at the site through ritual theory, and with a method of comparative analogy and research.

  3. 3. Design and Optimisation of an Aquifer Storage and Recovery System - Options for long term storage under natural hydraulic gradients

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk geologi

    Author : Simon Kreipl; [2021]
    Keywords : Aquifer storage and recovery; well-field design; groundwater modelling; numerical modelling; FEFLOW; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) is a concept where water is stored in an aquifer during times when it is available, thus creating artificial groundwater, which can later be recovered by pumping when it is needed (Pyne, 1995). One ASR cycle consists of a injection, a standby and a recovery phase. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biodiversity and habitat conditions in reaches with high flow velocity along gradients in hydrological and geomorphological alteration : A study of six rivers in Sweden

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

    Author : Anders Aalto; [2021]
    Keywords : Hydrology; Geomorphology; Biological variables; Human alteration;

    Abstract : The vast majority of rivers in the developed world are affected by human alteration, which in turn negatively affects the species that rely on these highly diverse and species rich areas to survive. Homogenization of previously heterogenic areas due to a change in water discharge and the substrate availability in the rivers is often regarded as the main reason for the loss of species richness in rivers and the riparian zone.

  5. 5. Machine Learning Applied to Reach Classification in a Northern Sweden Catchment

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

    Author : Mariana dos Santos Toledo Busarello; [2021]
    Keywords : machine learning; geomorphology; random forest; channel type;

    Abstract : An accurate fine resolution classification of river systems positively impacts the process of assessment and monitoring of water courses, as stressed by the European Commission’s Water Framework Directive. Being able to attribute classes using remotely obtained data can be advantageous to perform extensive classification of reaches without the use of field work, with some methods also allowing to identify which features best described each of the process domains.
