  1. 1. Evaluation of distribution coefficients (KOC and Kd) for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för biologi och miljö (BOM)

    Author : Nika Nordanstorm; [2021]
    Keywords : PFAS; PFOS; organic contaminant; sorption; Kd; KOC; distribution coefficient; solubility; mobility; environmental fate; environmental transport; contaminated site; hydrophobic interaction; electrostatic interaction;

    Abstract : The dominating factors affecting sorption of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) remain subject of research and debate. Traditionally, distribution coefficients (e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Drivers of topsoil saturated hydraulic conductivity in three contrasting landscapes in Kenya

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

    Author : David Falk; [2021]
    Keywords : Infiltrability; mixed effects model; Kenya; land degradation; restoration; trees;

    Abstract : Markförsämring i tropiska regioner kan ha förödande konsekvenser för vattentillgänglighet. Vattenkvalité och kvantitet är oerhört viktiga för lokalbefolkningar och är grundförutsättningar för socioekonomisk utveckling då stora delar av befolkningen i många tropiska länder är direkt beroende av jordbruk och boskapshållning för sin inkomst.

  3. 3. Modelling and simulation of vibratory driven sheet piles - Development of a stop criterion

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Johannes Jonsson; Anton Andersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Vibratory driving; sheet pile; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : During excavations, steel sheet piles are often installed through vibratory driving, to establish a retaining wall that resists soil instability and ground water leakage. The method of vibratory driving is that the sheet pile is driven into the soil with a vertical vibratory motion. This is especially effective in soft soils. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. GIS modeling of green roof ecosystem services to optimize green infrastructure placement and to map multifunctionality : a case study in Sydöstra staden, Uppsala, Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Olivier Rostang; [2021]
    Keywords : ecosystem services; GIS; green roofs; urban green infrastructure; sustainable development; multifunctionality; urban planning;

    Abstract : Green roofing has emerged as a viable option for developers and planners seeking to integrate ecosystem services into the built environment, while, at the same time, responding to the constraints posed by urban densification. Urban green infrastructure (UGI) has been placed at the core of sustainable urban planning enabling the integration of ecosystem services in urban development. READ MORE
