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

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Bjørn Kløve; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :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

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Jona Finndis Jonsdottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; marklära; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; geomorphology; runoff map; projection of future runoff; Environmental studies; Miljöstudier; Physical geography; hydrological modelling; trends; climate change; climate variability; Iceland; water resources; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik; kartografi; klimatologi; Civil engineering; hydraulic engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Hydropower is the main source of electricity production in Iceland. In 2005, 80.8% of all electricity was generated by hydropower (7015 GWh). Hydropower production is affected both by variations and changes in discharge. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Sustainable and Safe Use of Non-conventional Waters -Reclaimed Water and Desalinated Water

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Shuang Liu; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water reuse; Desalination; Strategy; Water security; Guidelines; Policy; Microbial risk assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Fresh water scarcity, pollution and an uneven distribution have caused an increasingly serious global water crisis. One of the most widely adopted response strategies is the exploitation and use of non-conventional water sources. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Sustainable Development: Implementation in Urban Water Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Ali Bagheri; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Miljöteknik; pollution control; Environmental technology; Naturvetenskap; Natural science; Water resources systems; Viability loops; Urban water system; System dynamics; Sustainable development; Strategy; Social learning; Process; Principles; Indicators; Planning; Monitoring; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Sammanfattning : As Sustainable development, a widely used but poorly understood term, challenges traditional scientific values such as prediction and control, scientists have tried to manipulate the concept to promote their own particular agendas. Thus, it has suffered from misrepresentation which has prevented the concept from being fully implemented at a practical level. LÄS MER

  5. 5. METHODS FOR TRANSBOUNDARY WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN WATER STRESSED REGIONS – CASE STUDY: SOUTHERN AFRICA

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Dinis Juizo; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; river basin simulation; water quality monitoring; stakeholders involvement; Southern Africa; South Africa; Mozambique; transboundary water systems; Swaziland;

    Sammanfattning : Water resources management in water scarce regions like the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) is challenging with both large hydro-climatic-induced scarcity and the considerable inter-annual fluctuations at the centre of the allocation problem. Water must be allocated both in time and space using acceptable criteria and most importantly, all stakeholders must adhere to the decisions imposed by water sharing agreements. LÄS MER
