  1. 1. Wastewater discharges and microbial variability in a surface water source

    Author : Johan Åström; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; faecal indicators; pathogens; drinking-water; microbial risk assessment; variability; rainfall; catchment; wastewater; surface water; Hazardous events;

    Abstract : Planning for drinking-water safety in surface waters includes a systematic assessment of hazards in the catchment, and microbial contamination is considered a major health risk. The aim of this thesis was to identify and characterize microbial hazardous events reported for River Göta älv, Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microbial Risks in Surface Water Sources

    Author : Johan Åström; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface water; Bifidobacteria; Microbial source tracking; Cryptosporidium.; QMRA; Flow-weighted sampling; Pathogens; Bacteroidales; Stochastic modelling; qPCR;

    Abstract : Microbial risks need to be properly handled for the provision of healthy drinking water. The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tracking changes in dissolved natural organic matter composition : evaluating drinking water production using optical and molecular level tools

    University dissertation from ; Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Elin Lavonen; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : During the last decades, the abundance of dissolved organic matter (DOM), a complex heterogeneous mixture of organic compounds, has increased in many surface waters in Northern Europe and North America. Surface waters are widely used as raw water sources for drinking water production. READ MORE

  4. 4. Basin-scale change in water availability and water quality under intensified irrigated agriculture

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University

    Author : Rebecka Törnqvist; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Irrigation; Hydrology; Land-use change; Basin-scale; Central Asia; Aral Sea; Semi-arid; Return flow; Water saving; Health risk; Water quality; Surface water; Groundwater; Nitrogen; Attenuation; Recirculation; Climate change; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Changes in land use and water use can greatly impact the cycling of water and water-borne substances. Increased redistribution of river water to irrigated fields can cause enhanced evapotranspiration and decreased river discharge. READ MORE

  5. 5. ROLE OF SURFACE OXIDES IN SINTERING OF CHROMIUM-ALLOYED STEEL POWDER

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Henrik Karlsson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water atomisation; surface analysis; sintering; chromium-alloyed steel.; Powder metallurgy; surface reactions; surface; surface oxide; SEM; XRD; AES; XPS;

    Abstract : During water-atomisation and handling of steel powder the surface inevitably oxidises. The surface bound oxide is an important factor in the processing of powder metallurgical (PM) steels, especially in case the powder contains elements forming stable oxides, such as Cr, Mn, and Si.
