  1. 1. Hydrological Modeling for Climate Change Impact Assessment Transferring Large-Scale Information from Global Climate Models to the Catchment Scale

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Claudia Teutschbein; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bias Correction; Climate Change; Climate Models; Ensembles; GCM; HBV; Hydrological Modeling; Precipitation; RCM; Split Sample Test; Streamflow; Sweden; Temperature; Uncertainty; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : A changing climate can severely perturb regional hydrology and thereby affect human societies and life in general. To assess and simulate such potential hydrological climate change impacts, hydrological models require reliable meteorological variables for current and future climate conditions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water and Heat Transport in Road Structures Development of Mechanistic Models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Klas Hansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Water flow; Heat flow; Unsaturated flow; Freeze-thaw; Numerical models; Uncertainty analysis; Sensitivity analysis; Roads; Overland flow; Flow patterns; TDR; Water content reflectometer; Calibration; Fractures; Hydrologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : The coupled transport of water and heat, involving freezing and thawing, in the road structure and its immediate environment is important to consider for optimal design and maintenance of roads and when assessing solute transport, of e.g. de-icing salt, from roads. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hydrological Transport in Shallow Catchments: tracer discharge, travel time and water age

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sofie Safeyeh Soltani; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrological transport; travel time; water age; tracer discharge; Lagrangian pathway approach; pathway lengths; numerical modeling; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : This focuses on hydrological transport in shallow catchments with topography-driven flow paths. The thesis gives new insight to kinematic pathway models for estimation of tracer discharge at the catchment outlet. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydrological effects of water harvesting techniques

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Slah Nasri; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik; offshore technology; hydraulic engineering; hydrological effects; Civil engineering; rainwater harvesting; erosion;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates hydrological effects of large-scale water harvesting techniques on local water balances as well as sediment erosion. The techniques of tabias, soil contour ridges and small hill reservoirs are investigated. Pertinent processes are observed and simulated using various hydrological models.. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrological modeling as a tool for sustainable water resources management: a case study of the Awash River Basin

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Selome M. Tessema; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrological characteristics; Distributed hydrological modeling; Rainfall-runoff correlation; Streamflow prediction; Sustainable water management; Awash River Basin; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Hydrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Hydrologi;

    Abstract : The growing pressure on the world‘s fresh water resources is enforced by population growth that leads to conflicts between demands for different purposes. A main concern on water use is the conflict between the environment and other purposes like hydropower, irrigation for agriculture and domestic and industry water supply, where total flows are diverted without releasing water for ecological conservation.
