  1. 1. Life Cycle Assessment of Borehole Thermal Energy Storage

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Saga Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Borehole thermal energy storage (BTES) is a technology used to store energy between seasons. It could therefore be a solution to the seasonal mismatch between the use and production of (renewable) energy, which can be used to increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

  2. 2. A Comprehensive Review of the Factors Influencing the Environmental Impact of different Species bred in Closed Land-based Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Centrum för miljö- och klimatvetenskap (CEC)

    Author : Siri Samuelsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Recirculating aquaculture system; renewable electricity; Feed Conversion Ratio; environmental impact; freshwater eutrophication; climate change; land use; cumulative energy use; acidification; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Today the future supply of seafood is threatened due to human activities which, among other things, has led to overfishing. However, more environmental friendly initiatives of producing seafood have emerged, such as Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RASs). READ MORE

  3. 3. How brownification and eutrophication effects a drinking water source – with Lake Bolmen, Sweden, in focus

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning; Lunds universitet/Centrum för miljö- och klimatvetenskap (CEC)

    Author : Stina Stomberg; [2022]
    Keywords : brownification; eutrophication effects; drinking water; phytoplankton; Lake Bolmen; mesocosm; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The ongoing human impact in form of deforestation, urbanization and intense agriculture is affecting the natural hydrology and our freshwater lakes negatively. Both eutrophication and brownification has seen to increase with the ongoing environmental change which can potentially have large impact on our freshwater ecosystems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydrodynamic and Eutrophication Modelling of Lake Vomb: Impact of Future Climate Change on Cyanobacteria

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

    Author : Ahmed Elhabashy; [2022]
    Keywords : Hydrodynamic modelling; eutrophication; Cyanobacteria; Chlorophyll-a; climate change; MIKE 3 FM; Lake Vomb;

    Abstract : The increasing frequency of Cyanobacterial blooms in freshwater bodies raise concerns around the globe. The consequences of this phenomenon impact not only human health but the entire surrounding ecosystem. During the past decades, numerical modelling has been increasingly used to investigate and study aquatic systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term phosphorus trends in Swedish rivers and streams : widespread and persistent nutrient decline

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

    Author : Sara Camiolo; [2021]
    Keywords : eutrophication; rivers; streams; phosphorus;

    Abstract : Phosphorus (P) is often considered the limiting nutrient for freshwater productivity because of its relevant role in regulating algal production and determining community composition. The concern for increasing anthropogenic P inputs registered since the last century has shaped environmental policies around the world to limit the effects of algal bloom (also known as eutrophication) in freshwater ecosystems through the establishment of maximum threshold nutrient concentrations.
