  1. 1. Catching Mercury : Mercury in Lake Vänern and Swedish catchments

    University dissertation from Tema vatten i natur och samhälle

    Author : Peter Wihlborg; Lars Hylander; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mercury; deposition; budget; sediments; retention; catchments; dating; kvicksilver; deposition; budget; retention; avrinningsområden; datering; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : Vänern och dess sediment har under 1900-talet varit en av Sveriges mest kvicksilver (Hg) kontaminerade miljöer. 47 sedimentprofiler tagna 2001 analyserades for total Hg och temporala och spatiala mönster påvisades. Av den direkta Hg tillförseln 1918-2001 återfinns c:a 30 ton i bottensedimenten. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrology and Bed Topography of the Greenland Ice Sheet Last known surroundings

    Author : Katrin Lindbäck; Rickard Pettersson; Francisco Navarro; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; Greenland Ice Sheet; radio-echo sounding; digital elevation models; ice thickness; bed topography; spectral analysis; roughness; subglacial hydrology; water piracy; englacial features; drainage catchments; meltwater runoff; ice dynamics; klimatförändringar; Grönlands inlandsis; markbaserad radar; digitala höjdmodeller; istjocklek; bottentopografi; spektralanalys; subglacial hydrologi; englaciala strukturer; avrinningsområden; isdynamik;

    Abstract : The increased temperatures in the Arctic accelerate the loss of land based ice stored in glaciers. The Greenland Ice Sheet is the largest ice mass in the Northern Hemisphere and holds ~10% of all the freshwater on Earth, equivalent to ~7 metres of global sea level rise. READ MORE

    Abstract : Water constraints for humans and nature are gaining more and more public attention as a critical environmental dilemma that needs to be addressed. When aquifers and rivers are running dry, the debate refers to an ongoing “world water crisis”. READ MORE

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Data uncertainty; Discharge; Disinformative data; Evaporation; Flow-duration curve; Global hydrology; Neural networks; Numerical weather prediction; Precipitation; Quality control; Regionalisation; Ungauged basins; Water balance; Avdunstning; avrinningsområden utan vattenföringsdata; dataosäkerhet; desinformativa data; global hydrologi; kvalitetskontroll; nederbörd; neurala nät; numerisk vädermodell; regionalisering; varaktighetskurva; vattenbalans; vattenföring; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Water is essential for human well-being and healthy ecosystems, but population growth and changes in climate and land-use are putting increased stress on water resources in many regions. To ensure water security, knowledge about the spatiotemporal distribution of these resources is of great importance. READ MORE

    Abstract : Knowledge about spatial and temporal variability of hydrological processes is central for sustainable water-resources management, and such knowledge is created from observational data. Hydrologic models are necessary for prediction for time periods and areas lacking data, but are affected by observational uncertainties. READ MORE
