  1. 1. Urban stormwater systems in future climates assessment and management of hydraulic overloading

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Increasing global temperatures and tendencies of more frequent extreme weather events have been observed over the recent decades, and the continuation of this trend is predicted by future climate models. Such climatic changes impact on many human activities and hence the interest in, and focus on, climate change has increased rapidly in recent years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Overcoming inertia to sustainable stormwater management practice

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Annicka Cettner; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there is a growing receptivity for change to more sustainable stormwater practices using green infrastructure approaches. Unlike piped drainage systems they can have multiple benefits in use including flood control, pollutant removal and can add to the quality of urban space supporting green infrastructure through irrigation and providing cooling and an additional water source for supply.

  3. 3. Biofiltration technologies for stormwater quality treatment

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Godecke-Tobias Blecken; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Due to high runoff volumes and peak flows, and significant contamination with (inter alia) sediment, metals, nutrients, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and salt, urban stormwater is a major cause of degradation of urban water ways. Since current urban drainage systems, which heavily rely on piped sewer networks, may not be sustainable, attempts are being made to develop and refine sustainable urban drainage solutions, notably in Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) and Low Impact Development (LID) concepts.

  4. 4. The hidden landscape : on fine-scale green structure and its role regulating ecosystem services in the urban environment

    University dissertation from ; Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Johanna Deak Sjöman; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates and highlights the role of fine scale green structure in the urban landscape with regards to the regulating ecosystem services of runoff mitigation, wind speed regulation and modification to mean radiant temperatures. The analysis was based on case studies in southern Sweden, projecting from a flooding incident in the Höjeå river catchment in 2007 and the current seafront development of Lomma Harbour and similar schemes in the Öresund region.
