  1. 1. Lifetime CostEffectiveness of Constructed Wetland and Rain Garden Facilities in Relation to Expected  Treatment Performance

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

    Author : Abdullah Noorhussin Ali; [2023]
    Keywords : Stormwater; Total cost; StormTac; Cost-effectiveness;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the cost effectiveness of two different stormwater control measure (SCM) facilities, namely a constructed wetland in Boden and a rain garden in Gothenburg (both Sweden), in relation to treatment efficiency and contributing catchment area. The study approach involved collection of data, construction, and maintenance activities with their respective costs, for the two stormwater control measures from commercial and literature data.

  2. 2. Stratigraphy and palaeoenvironment of the early Jurassic volcaniclastic strata at Djupadalsmölla, central Skåne, Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Per Wahlquist; [2023]
    Keywords : volcaniclastic; Djupadalsmölla; CSVP; palynomorphs; early Jurassic; late Pliensbachian; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : From the almost 200 volcanic outcrops in the Central Skåne Volcanic Province (CSVP), only three are of volcaniclastic material. These volcanoclastics, and the transition to the underlying crystalline basement, have been investigated for the first time in a drill core (KBH2) from Djupadalsmölla in order to understand the stra-tigraphy, depositional process, age of deposition, and depositional environment.

  3. 3. Våtmarksbatymetri : djupmätning av 10 anlagda våtmarker i Mälardalen

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

    Author : Gordon Lindau; [2022]
    Keywords : batymetri; djupmätning; portabelt ekolod; kastbart ekolod; våtmark; fosfordamm;

    Abstract : Tio anlagda våtmarker i jordbrukslandskap i Mälardalen har undersökts i syfte att bestämma vattendjup och volym samt för att studera batymetriska metoder som kan vara lämpliga vid djupmätning av fosfordammar och andra grunda våtmarker. De metoder som använts är portabelt, kastbart ekolod som både släpats bakom kajak och kastats med fiskespö från land samt manuell mätning med mätsticka. READ MORE

  4. 4. What has happened on Swedish mires? The effects of drainage on vegetation changes over recent decades

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Anna Ljungqvist; [2022]
    Keywords : peatlands; mires; bogs; fens; sweden; vegetation; plant ecology; time trend; data; nfi; nils; climate change; global warming; mosses; sphagnum; afforestation; trees; wetland; presence; coverage; drainage; ditch;

    Abstract : As they are not only the home of many threatened species, but also one of the main actors in the global carbon cycle, peatlands are highly valuable ecosystems. Human disturbance, in particular drainage for forestry and agriculture, has substantially changed the state of the world’s peatlands and will continue to do so. READ MORE

  5. 5. Emission of greenhouse gases from constructed wetlands : Nutrient status in relation to methane and nitrous oxide emission

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Christian Lundström; [2022]
    Keywords : Constructed wetland; greenhouse gas emission; nutrient status; ebullition; Anlagd våtmark; växthusgasutsläpp; näringsstatus; ebullition;

    Abstract : Agricultural land releases large amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus to water bodies which causes eutrophication. Creating wetlands on agricultural land is one way to prevent this major issue. However, constructed wetlands are a large emission source of greenhouse gases. READ MORE
