  1. 1. Groundwater flooding in a Moldovan limestone mine : An investigation into the limestone aquifer in Chisinau andsustainable solutions to mine dewatering

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Erik Tobin; [2022]
    Keywords : groundwater; hydrogeology; limestone; mine; Moldova; Chisinau; grundvatten; hydrogeologi; kalksten; gruva; Moldavien; Chisinau;

    Abstract : This work aimed to investigate the groundwater situation in and around Mina din Chisinau, an underground limestone mine in Chisinau, Moldova, in order to contribute to a sustainable solution to its flooding problem. Work on-site was done including visits inside the mine, to points of hydrogeological relevance to the mine, well inventories/search, and an attempt at an infiltration test. READ MORE

  2. 2. An automated unmanned aerial vehicle – structure from motion pipeline to create analysis-ready digital surface models for coastal monitoring

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Maximilian Rafael Huber; [2021]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; geomatics; GIS; UAV; structure-from-motion; machine learning; coastal monitoring; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic pressure on coastal areas continues to increase, thus intensifying coastal erosion. Coastal monitoring programs are therefore essential to prevent severe ecosystem and economic consequences. Successful coastal monitoring schemes require highly accurate analysis-ready Digital surface models (DSMs) derived using the same workflow. READ MORE

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

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Plant Breeding (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.

  4. 4. The hydrodynamic impacts of Estuarine Oyster reefs, and the application of drone technology to this study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Oskar Evert Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Oyster Reef; Drone; UAV; Hydrodynamics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The impacts of climate change are being seen within the estuarine environment through erosion and shoreline retreat, associated with sea-level rise and changes in storm activity. Restoration oyster reefs have been identified as a working-with-nature strategy to protect and restore these shoreline environments, stabilising sediment, and reducing erosion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling of water and material transport in River Storån to Lake Bolmen

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Imjal Sukupayo; [2021]
    Keywords : Brownification; Water Color; Dissolved Organic Matter; Discharge; hydraulic analysis; Tracer Analysis; Dispersion coefficient; Advection and Diffusion; Bolmen Lake; Storån River; Technology and Engineering; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The change of color of water from yellow to brown termed as brownification process is mainly due to leaching of humus and iron concentrations. In recent years, this problem is increasing in lake Bolmen, a major source of drinking water in Skåne county, Sweden. READ MORE
