  1. 1. Sediment transport from source to sink in the Lake Baikal basin : Impacts of hydroclimatic change and mining

    Author : Jan Pietroń; Jerker Jarsjö; Enrica Viparelli; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sediment transport; human impact; hydroclimatic change; surface mining; metal-enriched sediment; Lake Baikal; the Selenga River; the Selenga Delta; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Different magnitude, intensity and timing of precipitation can impact runoff, hillslope erosion and transport of sediment along river channels.  Human activities, such as dam construction and surface mining can also considerably influence transport of sediment and sediment-bound contaminants.

  2. 2. Changes in the Freshwater System : Distinguishing Climate and Landscape Drivers

    Author : Fernando Jaramillo; Georgia Destouni; Zbigniew W. Kundzewicz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Budyko; evapotranspiration; freshwater; hydrology; hydroclimatic change; landscape change; land use; observation data; runoff; separation; water partitioning; water storage change; water use; worldwide; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Freshwater is a vital resource that circulates between the atmosphere, the land and the sea. Understanding and quantifying changes to the partitioning of precipitation into evapotranspiration, runoff and water storage change in the landscape are required for assessing changes to freshwater availability.

  3. 3. Managing coastal eutrophication : Land-sea and hydroclimatic linkages with focus on the Baltic coastal system

    Author : Guillaume Vigouroux; Georgia Destouni; Alice Newton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; coastal eutrophication; land-coast-sea continuum; management; hydroclimatic change; research gaps; eutrophication modelling; temoporal trends; scoping review; Baltic Sea; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Eutrophication endangers coastal ecosystems all over the world and is most often associated with an increase in anthropogenic nutrient loads to coastal waters, which fuel the growth of algae and create a variety of environmental problems. This is also the case for the Baltic Sea where coastal waters may be affected by various land, coast-sea, and hydroclimatic drivers and feedbacks, over different scales, including the eutrophic open sea.

  4. 4. Impacts of climate change on surface hydrology in the source region of the Yellow River

    Author : Feifei Yuan; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Source region of the Yellow River; climate change; summer precipitation; ENSO; teleconnection pattern; sea surface temperature; Xinanjiang model; Rainfall-Runoff process;

    Abstract : The source region of the Yellow River contributes about 35% of the total water yield in the Yellow River basin playing an important role for meeting the downstream water resources requirements. The declining water availability caused by climate change in the source region of the Yellow River is expected to have severe repercussions for the 110 million basin inhabitants in terms of water resources affecting agricultural productivity, municipal, and industrial water supply.

  5. 5. Global and continental perspectives on the sustainability of future agricultural water management

    Author : Luigi Piemontese; Fernando Jaramillo; Luigia Brandimarte; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water; sustainable water management; agriculture; water harvesting; climate change; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Abstract : Ensuring water and food security in the Anthropocene requires an understanding of combined climate change patterns and land and water management options from local to global scale. In many regions, irrigation from river and groundwater sources is being used at unsustainable rates and climate change will further threaten those water sources. READ MORE
