  1. 1. Effects of Wildfire Burn on Permafrost Landcover and Catchment Hydrology in Manitoba, Canada

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Andreas Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : wildfire; permafrost; catchment hydrology;

    Abstract : Permafrost is a strongly controlling factor on Arctic hydrology due to its effect on ground permeability, and thus surface and ground water flow paths. As wildfires are increasing in occurrence and magnitude in permafrost regions, they may alter the hydrological regime via permafrost thaw and degradation that increases ground permeability.

  2. 2. Regional Regression Models of Mean Annual Streamflow and Design Flow in a Tropical Region of Colombia.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Anisa Zigaf Elfellah; Amanda Eriksson; [2018]
    Keywords : mean annual streamflow; extreme flow; design flow; regional regression model; ungauged watershed; hydrological homogeneous region; Gumbel distribution; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A responsible and sustainable water resources management is important. It is also crucial to take the presence of watercourses into account during design of hydraulic structures such as small dams and bridges. Doing this requires knowledge of estimates of annual streamflow and extreme flows to be used for design purposes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Trends in high peak flow generation across the Swedish Subarctic

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Bettina Matti; [2015]
    Keywords : flood generation; extreme events; climate change; Sweden; Subarctic; trend analysis; flood frequency analysis;

    Abstract : There is growing concern for increased frequency of extreme events due to several severe floods and droughts occurring globally in recent years. Improving knowledge on the complexity of hydrological systems and interactions with climate is essential to be able to determine drivers and predict changes in the future. READ MORE
