  1. 1. Estimation of dissolved organic carbon from inland waters using remote sensing data and machine learning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lasse Harkort; [2022]
    Keywords : dissolved organic carbon; machine learning; remote sensing; inland waters; water quality; open source data; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the first attempt to estimate Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) in inland waters over a large-scale area using satellite data and machine learning (ML) methods. Four ML approaches, namely Random Forest Regression (RFR), Support Vector Regression (SVR), Gaussian Process Regression (GPR), and a Multilayer Backpropagation Neural Network (MBPNN) were tested to retrieve DOC using a filtered version of the recently published open source AquaSat dataset with more than 16 thousand samples across the continental US matched with satellite data from Landsat 5, 7 and 8 missions.

  2. 2. The Untold Story of Baba Island : Sustainable Livelihood: The Revival of Fishing Community andEcology of Baba Island, Karachi

    University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

    Author : Mahum Ahmad; [2022]
    Keywords : Ecology; Community Building; Urban Design; Architecture; Rising Sea Levels;

    Abstract : Once covered by dense mangrove forest, Baba Island was inclusive of a group of Islands protecting the Kolachi settlement from storms and invasion.  Kolachi Jo Goth (fisherman’s village) transformed into the present-day megacity of Karachi when the British conquered and established it as a harbour for trade.

  3. 3. Temporal Trends in Dissolved Inorganic Carbon in a Swedish Boreal Catchment

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lukas Rehn; [2021]
    Keywords : Boreal catchments; carbon cycling; carbon dioxide; DIC; headwater streams; Krycklan Catchment Study; trend analysis;

    Abstract : Inland waters are important systems for transforming, storing and transporting carbon along the aquatic continuum, but also by emitting carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) to the atmosphere. In light of the last decades observed increase in dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in many inland waters across the northern hemisphere, a logical question arise whether other aquatic carbon species display similar trends.

  4. 4. Traits of peat- and upland-derived stream dissolved organic carbon in the permafrost region around Abisko, northern Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nora Kainz; [2021]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; permafrost degradation; DOC; DOC concentration; stable isotope carbon signature; DOC quality; DOC degradation; Atmospheric Sciences and Biogeochemical Cycles; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Climate change-induced thawing of permafrost mobilizes previously frozen carbon of high potential reactivity, thereby, fuelling microbiological production of greenhouse gases. For this work, an analysis of the quantity, quality, and bioreactivity of DOC in streams from the Stordalen discontinuous permafrost catchment was carried out with stream water samples during the relatively warm summer of 2018.

  5. 5. Carbon dioxide dynamics in agricultural streams : Investigation of two streams draining catchments dominated by agricultural land

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

    Author : Albin Bostner; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon dioxide; dynamics; streams; agriculture; oversaturation; metabolic control; hyrdological control; Koldioxid; koldynamik; bäckar; jordbruk; övermättat; metabolisk kontroll; hydrologisk kontroll;

    Abstract : In recent years, streams draining agricultural land has been suggested to exhibit high carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations when compared to streams draining other land-types. The transport of carbon from land to ocean is mainly occurring through the chain of inland waters, and with agricultural land today representing 40% of all continental area many of these inland waters are influenced by agricultural land.
