  1. 1. Robust Water Balance Modeling with Uncertain Discharge and Precipitation Data : Computational Geometry as a New Tool

    Author : José-Luis Guerrero; Sven Halldin; Stefan Uhlenbrook; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alpha shape; Convex hull; Depth function; Discharge; Hydrological models; Honduras; Model calibration; Parameter-value estimation; Precipitation; Rating curve; Robust; Robustness; Uncertainty estimation; Water resources.; Alfaform; avbördningskurva; djupfunktion; Honduras; hydrologiska modeller; konvext hölje; modellkalibrering; nederbörd; osäkerhetsskattning; parametervärdesskattning; robust; robusthet; vattenföring; vattenresurser; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Models are important tools for understanding the hydrological processes that govern water transport in the landscape and for prediction at times and places where no observations are available. The degree of trust placed on models, however, should not exceed the quality of the data they are fed with. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spatio-Temporal Estimation for Mixture Models and Gaussian Markov Random Fields - Applications to Video Analysis and Environmental Modelling

    Author : Johan Lindström; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; vegetation; time series analysis; video segmentation; spatio-temporal modelling; precipitation; Markov chain Monte Carlo; Gaussian Markov random fields; expectation maximisation; change point detection; Bayesian recursive estimation; African Sahel; adaptive Gaussian mixtures;

    Abstract : In this thesis computationally intensive methods are used to estimate models and to make inference for large, spatio-temporal data sets. The thesis is divided into two parts: the first two papers are concerned with video analysis, while the last three papers model and investigate environmental data from the Sahel area in northern Africa.

    Author : Ida Westerberg; Sven Halldin; Jan Seibert; Lars-Christer Lundin; Chong-Yu Xu; Deliang Chen; Alberto Montanari; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Central America; Discharge; Flow-duration curve; Fuzzy regression; GLUE; Model evaluation; Non-stationarity; Observational uncertainty; Precipitation; Quality control; Rating curve; Regionalisation; Uncertainty estimation; Ungauged basins; Water resources; Avbördningskurva; Centralamerika; GLUE; icke-stationaritet; kvalitetskontroll; modellutvärdering; nederbörd; observationsosäkerheter; avrinningsområden utan vattenfö-ringsdata; oskarp regression; osäkerhetsuppskattning; regionalisering; varaktighetskurva; vattenföring; vattenresurser; Hydrology; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    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

  4. 4. Advanced Remote Sensing Precipitation Input for Improved Runoff Simulation : Local to regional scale modelling

    Author : Seyyed Hasan Hosseini; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Precipitation; Rainfall; Satellite; Runoff; Streamflow; Rainfall-runoff modelling; X-band weather radar; GPM-IMERG; MODIS Terra;

    Abstract : Accurate precipitation data are crucial for hydrological modelling and rainwater runoff management. Precipitation variability exists through a wide range of spatial and temporal scales and cannot be captured well using sparse rain gauge networks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Groundwater Recharge in Crystalline Bedrock : Processes, Estimation, and Modelling

    Author : Niclas Bockgård; Sven Halldin; Allan Rodhe; Auli Niemi; Lars O. Ericsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; groundwater recharge; bedrock; crystalline rocks; tracers; CFC; surface loading; loading efficiency; barometric effect; heterogeneity; stochastic modelling; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Kunskap om grundvattenbildningen är nödvändig för att man ska kunna förutsäga konsekvenserna av grundvattenuttag och underjordsbyggande. Grundvattenbildningen i berggrunden är dock svår att uppskatta. READ MORE
