  1. 1. Influence of Sea Surface Temperature on Rainfall and Runof in Northeastern South America: Analysis and Modeling

    Författare :Cintia Bertacchi Uvo; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kartografi; marklära; geomorfologi; Fysisk geografi; climatology; pedology; cartography; Physical geography; geomorphology; sea surface temperature; rainfall-runoff; Amazonia; precipitation; Northeast Brazil; klimatologi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi;

    Sammanfattning : This work represents an amalgam of a group of studies with the purpose of understanding the influence of the Pacific and Atlantic sea surface temperature on precipitation and river discharge in Northeastern South America. Sea surface temperature is a good representative of phenomena such as ENSO that, in turn, cause worldwide climate variability. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Automated performance monitoring of concrete dams

    Författare :Christian Bernstone; Teknisk geologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; geographical and geological engineering; Maintenance; Uplift pressure; Crack; Deformation; Image processing; Dams; Condition monitoring; Time-domain reflectometry; GPS; Image analysis; Concrete structures; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeology;

    Sammanfattning : The Swedish hydropower industry operates a large number of power plants and dams geographically spread over the country. The level of safety of a specific dam is to a large extent determined during the design and construction phases that in the case of Swedish hydropower plants took place several decades ago. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Groundwater occurrence and risk of pollution in a mountain watershed of Nicaragua

    Författare :Alfredo Mendoza; Teknisk geologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geologi; electrical resistivity; surface water; springs; Nicaragua; Hydrogeology; groundwater; teknisk geografi; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hydrogeological and geophysical methods were applied in the Río Artiguas watershed, a mountain basin located in central Nicaragua. This area is under environmental stress from anthropogenic activities like gold mining using mercury and waste disposal into the streams. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Surface Wave Testing of Pavements

    Författare :Nils Rydén; Teknisk geologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeology; inversion; guided waves; road; pavement; Surface waves; non-destructive testing;

    Sammanfattning : A novel approach for surface wave testing of pavements is presented. It is a non-destructive testing (NDT) technique that can be used to obtain the thickness and stiffness properties of the different layers in a pavement. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Resistivity investigation and monitoring for detection of internal erosion and anomalous seepage in embankment dams

    Författare :Pontus Sjödahl; Teknisk geologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; internal erosion; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; time-lapse inversion; inversion; monitoring; modelling; resistivity; detection; leakage; seepage; teknisk geografi; embankment dam;

    Sammanfattning : Methods for monitoring seepage and detecting internal erosion are essential for the safety evaluation of embankment dams. Internal erosion is one of the major reasons for embankment dam failures, and there are several tenths of thousands of large embankment dams in the world. LÄS MER
