  1. 1. The Story of Phosphorus : Sustainability implications of global phosphorus scarcity for food security

    Författare :Dana Cordell; Stuart White; Jan-Olof Drangert; Julie Wilk; Johan Rockström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; global phosphorus scarcity; peak phosphorus; global food security; sustainable resource use; food production and consumption system; transdisciplinary; systems thinking; global fosforbrist; peak fosfor; global matsäkerhet; hållbar resursanvändning; system för produktion och konsumtion av mat; transdisciplinaritet; systemtänkande; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Sammanfattning : The story of phosphorus began with the search for the philosopher’s stone, and centuries later the critical role of phosphorus in soil fertility and crop growth was highlighted. Eventually, phosphorus was implicated in the global environmental challenge of eutrophication. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Environmental impact of peat mining : Development of storm water treatment methods

    Författare :Bjørn Kløve; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeology; drainage artificial floodplaines; phosphorus; suspended solids; nitrogen; erosion; peat mining; peak runoff controll; sedimentation; water treatment; water resources; hydrology; hydraulics; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi;

    Sammanfattning : Drainage of peatlands increases the transport of suspended solids (SS) and the leaching of nutrients to downstream receiving waters. Increased settling of peat and eutrophication of lakes has been noted in many studies downstream from peat mines. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Filter beds for on-site wastewater treatment : Towards more reliable estimations of phosphorus retention

    Författare :Inga Herrmann; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Phosphorus (P) is an important plant nutrient and essential for life. However, thephosphate rock used for fertilizer production is a non-renewable resource and itsproduction is expected to peak. At the same time, the discharge of P into naturalwaters is causing eutrophication, a severe problem in areas such as the Baltic Sea. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Small wetlands designed for phosphorus retention in Swedish agricultural areas : efficiency variations during the first years after construction

    Författare :Pia Geranmayeh; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examined retention of particles and phosphorus (P) losses from agricultural clay soils in small wetlands with an initial deep area followed by a shallow area with emergent plants. Two long, narrow wetlands (Bergaholm and Nybble) specially designed for P retention (P-wetlands) were constructed, and their efficiency in sediment accumulation were compared with those of six existing wetlands with a different design.

  5. 5. Climate Change Impacts on the Catchment Contribution to Lake Water Quantity and Quality

    Författare :Karen Moore; Kurt Pettersson; Donald Pierson; Timothy Kratz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; water quality modelling; Lake Mälaren; GWLF; nutrient transport;

    Sammanfattning : A key question related to climate change projections is how will aquatic systems respond to changes in variables such as temperature and precipitation? This thesis uses GWLF, a simple catchment scale model to explore potential impacts of climate change on water quantity and quality.River discharge and nutrient loads were modelled for several warmer world scenarios.
