Sammanfattning : For better road construction and maintenance while minimising damage to the environment and groundwater, it is essential to monitor and model hydrological impacts on roads and consider pollution of groundwater. Water content in unbound material in road layers changes continuously and water flow usually occurs along pathways that are the main corridors for pollutant spread to groundwater. LÄS MER
2. Biogeochemical Processes in Denitrifying Woodchip Bioreactors and their Application in the Mining Industry
Sammanfattning : This thesis evaluates passive denitrifying woodchip bioreactors (DWBs) for the removal of nitrate (NO3-) in neutral pH mine drainage, where water is passed through a carbon-rich porous matrix (e.g. woodchips) for the reduction of NO3- to nitrogen gas. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Unsaturated solute transport is highly variable and therefore difficult to predict. In semi-arid areas, where water resources are limited, the presence of macropores is of great importance for crop production. The bromide ion (Br-) and dye tracers are useful for studies of water movement. LÄS MER
4. Forests and Water - Friends or Foes? : Hydrological implications of deforestation and land degradation in semi-arid Tanzania
Sammanfattning : This is a study of landscape hydrology; a type of hydrology which focuses on large sca1e implications of hydrologica1 processes as a function of hydroclimate, surface and sub-surface land properties, and the effect of human activities. The focus of the thesis is groundwater recharge and dry season flow following deforestation and land degradation. LÄS MER
5. Subsurface fluxes of mass and energy at the accumulation zone of Lomonosovfonna ice cap, Svalbard
Sammanfattning : Glaciers cover ca 10% of the Earth's land and are found in the high altitudes and latitudes. They are important components of environmental systems due to the multiple feedbacks linking them with the atmosphere, hydrosphere and periglacial landscapes. LÄS MER
