  1. 1. Impacts of peatland drainage on soil properties : a study of drainage effects on boreal peatlands in northern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Frederika Klaus; [2022]
    Keywords : Boreal peatlands; Bulk density; Carbon; Greenhouse gas; Isotopes; Nitrogen; Organic matter; Peatlands; Peatland drainage; Peatland restoration;

    Abstract : Peatlands cover approximately 3% of the terrestrial surface on Earth and perform several important ecosystem functions, such as carbon storage and water retention. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, approximately 2 million hectares of peatlands in Sweden were drained to manage the land for forestry and agriculture. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of the water quality dynamics of Lake Vomb; Interactions between water quality profile and cyanobacterial bloom in a eutrophic lake in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Wiebke Coenen; [2022]
    Keywords : Vombsj¨on; Lake profile; Cyanobacteria; Drinking water; Random Forest; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Lake Vomb, located in Sk˚ane, Sweden, provides water for groundwater infiltration, used for the drinking water supply of several municipalities, including Malm¨o. The lake is in a bad ecological condition with intense algae blooms during summer. Cyanobacteria dominate mentioned blooms in 2021 posing the threat of releasing cyanotoxins. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of social-ecological changes on resilience in the Senegalese Sahel

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Stockholm Resilience Centre

    Author : Frida Åberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Sahel; Ferlo; Resilience Assessment; Wayfinder; Agro-silvo-pastoralism;

    Abstract : Understanding how social-ecological changes influence the resilience of dryland agro-silvo-pastoral systems can offer new perspectives on current sustainability challenges. In this study I use mixed methods to explore how resilience thinking can guide development towards sustainable and just future pathways in the Sahelian part of northern Senegal. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Groundwater Flow to Lake Bolmen

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Väg- och vattenbyggnad (CI); Lunds universitet/Teknisk geologi

    Author : Massimiliano Favaro; [2021]
    Keywords : Groundwater; modelling; MODFLOW; GMS; hydrogeology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This work reports the research and findings concerning the processes of groundwater flow and distribution to lake Bolmen in the Småland region, Sweden. The watershed of Bolmen is of high interest since it provides water for drinking and energy purposes, representing a resource of notable importance for the society of southern Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling groundwater flow using COMSOL to understand the water cycle dynamics and climate change impacts for future groundwater availability in the Matlab region, Southeastern Bangladesh

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Oscar Vandromme; [2021]
    Keywords : Aquifer-Arsenic contamination-Climate change-Groundwater elevation-Model-Sustainability;

    Abstract : Arsenic contamination has been a growing concern for many countries, especially Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, one of the most arsenic-contaminated regions is Chandpur. In this study, groundwater data were analyzed in order to create models to improve knowledge on groundwater flow dynamic in a specific area of Chandpur called Matlab. READ MORE
