  1. 1. Sediment transport in small streams is related to riparian buffer width : a comparison between wide and narrow riparian buffers

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

    Author : Rasmus Staaf; [2022]
    Keywords : Riparian Zone; Protective Zone; Headwater Stream; Forestry; Clear – cut Harvest; Organic Sediment; Inorganic Sediment; Near Stream Logging;

    Abstract : This study aims to provide information about how different widths of riparian buffers affect the quantity and quality of sediments transported in a small stream after a clear – cut harvest. Small streams have critical influences on downstream rivers and excessive transported sediments can have large negative effects on the aquatic system. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Effect of Workplace Autonomy on Environmental Performance: A study on the individual workers’ autonomy in an organization and how it affects a company’s environmental performance

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Adrian von Glahn; Tobias Källerfelt Korall; Fredric Idmark; [2022]
    Keywords : environmental performance; environmental sustainability; autonomy; workplace autonomy; self-determination theory; Business and Economics; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the relationship between workplace autonomy and environmental performance. The relationship is measured through Scope 1 CO2 equivalent (CO2e) emissions and through a quantitative study. Previous research found that autonomy is not a widely researched field for environmental performance purposes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling for streamflow measurements in subarctic climate

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Linus Nyström; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling) technology has been widely available and acknowledged as an instrument used for different types of flow measurement since 1990s, from small scale river measurements to larger ocean current mappings. This study was conducted by the author in cooperation with SWECO with the focus on smaller scale measurements especially on small natural watercourses in a sub-arctic climate with the purpose to examine if the ADCP technology can be used as a complement to the more classic methods for this type of flow measurements Current meter and Conductivity flow measurements.

  4. 4. Spatial patterns of Dissolved Organic Matter in Swedish Surface Waters

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

    Author : Anna Lackner; [2022]
    Keywords : Dissolved Organic Matter; Brownification; Digital Mapping; Soil Moisture; Stream Length;

    Abstract : Dissolved organic matter (DOM) in surface water has been widely studied, in part due to its significance for aquatic ecology and drinking water quality. Across Sweden, increases in the total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations and color of surface waters, known as brownification, were noted in the decades before and after year 2000, though recent analysis has found widespread DOM increase to have ceased after 2010.

  5. 5. Manning’s roughness coefficient in small scale nature-like fish passages

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Aleksander Jaworowski; [2022]
    Keywords : Manning’s coefficient; flow measurement; fish passage; fish migration; roughness coefficient; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Fishway construction remains a crucial measure in environmental adaption of flow barriers. A well-functioning fishway should be able to pass all naturally occurring species of fish and other aquatic fauna. READ MORE
