  1. 1. Watershed-based design of stormwater treatment facilities : model development and applications

    Author : Thomas Larm; KTH; []
    Keywords : watershed; stormwater; runoff; pollutant transport; design criteria; constructed wetland; wet pond; filter strip; swale; reduction efficiency; monitoring program; StormTac;

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Global-Scale Modelling of the Land-Surface Water Balance : Development and Analysis of WASMOD-M

    Author : Elin Widén-Nilsson; Sven Halldin; Chong-yu Xu; Lars-Christer Lundin; Jens Christian Refsgaard; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Hydrology; Global; Water balance; Runoff; Regionalisation; Model uncertainty; Multi-objective; Parameter; Evaluation criteria; Routing; Climate change; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : Water is essential for all life on earth. Global population increase and climate change are projected to increase the water stress, which already today is very high in many areas of the world. The differences between the largest and smallest global runoff estimates exceed the highest continental runoff estimates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling calving and sliding of Svalbard outlet glaciers : Spatio-temporal changes and interactions

    Author : Dorothée Vallot; Rickard Pettersson; Veijo Pohjola; Ken Mattsson; Tómas Jóhannesson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cryospheric science; glacier modelling; time-lapse imagery; undercutting; sliding inversion; discrete particle model; calving model; subglacial hydrology; sliding law; automatic detection method; calving events size and frequency; ocean interaction; melt water runoff; ice dynamics; ice flow model; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot naturgeografi; Earth Science with specialization in Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Future sea level rise associated to global warming is one of the greatest societal and environmental challenges of tomorrow. A large part of the contribution comes from glaciers and ice sheets discharging ice and meltwater into the ocean and the recent worldwide increase is worrying. READ MORE

  5. 5. Conceptual runoff models - fiction or representation of reality?

    Author : Jan Seibert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Validation; conceptual runoff models; calibration; uncertainty; TOPMODEL; HBV model; groundwater levels; spatial distribution; topography; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Hydrology; hydrologi;

    Abstract : Available observations are often not sufficient as a basis for decision making in water management. Conceptual runoff models are frequently used as tools for a wide range of tasks to compensate the lack of measurements, e.g., to extend runoff series, compute design floods and predict the leakage of nutrients or the effects of a climatic change.
