  1. 1. Uncertainty, variability and environmental risk analysis

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Monika Filipsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Contaminated land; exposure assessment; exposure factors; risk analysis; risk perception; uncertainty; variability; probabilistic risk assessment; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The negative effects of hazardous substances and possible measures that can be taken are evaluated in the environmental risk analysis process, consisting of risk assessment, risk communication and risk management. Uncertainty due to lack of knowledge and natural variability are always present in this process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Risk Assessment of Groundwater Drawdown in Subsidence Sensitive Areas

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jonas Sundell; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; inverse modelling; cost-benefit analysis; probabilistic; groundwater drawdown; urban hydrogeology; economic valuation; groundwater leakage; subsidence; value of information analysis.; spatial variability; uncertainty quantification; risk assessment;

    Abstract : Groundwater leakage into sub-surface constructions can result in drawdown, subsidence in compressible materials, and costly damage to buildings and installations. When planning for sub-surface constructions where there is a risk for land subsidence due to groundwater drawdown, the need for safety measures must be carefully evaluated and managed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Economic Project Risk Assessment for Sustainable Choice Of REmediation (SCORE) in Construction Projects

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Petra Brinkhoff; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; probabilistic risk analysis; sustainability assessment; construction companies; project risk assessment; cost-benefit analysis;

    Abstract : Contamination of soil and/or groundwater is a problem all over the world. There is a desire from politicians and the supervisory authorities to tackle the contamination problem in order to protect future generations. READ MORE

  4. 4. Risk Estimation of Groundwater Drawdown in Subsidence Sensitive Areas

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Jonas Sundell; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; uncertainty quantification; urban hydrogeology; pore pressure reduction; subsidence; geostatistics; groundwater leakage; soft soil; groundwater drawdown; spatial variability; settlement; probabilistic; risk assessment;

    Abstract : Groundwater drawdown induced ground subsidence is a severe problem in many regions around the world. Leakage of groundwater into a sub-surface construction, resulting in drawdown and subsequent subsidence, can lead to immense damage costs on buildings and installations in urban areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Method Development for Environmental Risk Assessment of Shipwrecks

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Hanna Landquist; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; environmental risk assessment; decision support; fault tree analysis; shipwreck;

    Abstract : Potentially polluting shipwrecks containing oil or other hazardous substances may posea threat to the marine environment. This is a global problem and many shipwrecks stemfrom the Second World War and have been deteriorating on the sea floor since then. READ MORE
