  2. 2. Application of HEC-HMS modelling on River Storån,Model evaluation and analysis of the processes by using soil moisture accounting loss method

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Pooja Makki Vijayaprakash; [2021]
    Keywords : River Storån; HEC-HMS; SMA; streamflow; baseflow; evapotranspiration; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : River Storån, a major tributary of Lake Bolmen which is a source of fresh water to Skåne county of Sweden is found to alter the color of water in the lake due to the presence of natural organic matter. Hence it is of utmost importance to study the river to understand the dynamics of generation and flow of water from the river to the lake. READ MORE

  3. 3. Urban stormwater ponds: Evaluation of heavy metals and organic pollutants in stormwater and stormwater sediments

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

    Author : Felix Karlsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Urban stormwater; Stormwater ponds; Stormwater sediment; Heavy metals; Organic pollutants;
