  1. 1. Estimation of Forest Biomass and Faraday Rotation Using Polarimetric L-/P-band SAR

    Author : Gustaf Sandberg; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; linear regression; Remote sensing; forest biomass retrieval; P-band; synthetic aperture radar SAR ; calibration; L-band;

    Abstract : At present the greatest source of uncertainty in the global carbon cycle is in the terrestrialecosystems. In order to reduce these uncertainties it is necessary to provide consistent andaccurate global estimates of the biomass contained in the forests of the world. READ MORE

  2. 2. Model-Based Stem Volume Retrieval and Windthrow Detection using CARABAS and P-band SAR

    Author : Klas Folkesson; [2008]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CARABAS; remote sensing; forest monitoring; model-based stem volume retrieval; image segmentation; synthetic aperture radar SAR ; P-band; windthrow detection;

    Abstract : Radar remote sensing is an efficient method for monitoring forests over large areas. Radar waves transmitted from a system carried by a satellite or an aircraft interact with trees on the ground, and the reflected waves are used to form images which are independent of weather and light conditions.

  3. 3. Bed filters for phosphorus removal in on-site wastewater treatment Removal mechanisms and sustainability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)

    Author : David Eveborn; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; On-site wastewater treatment; Eutrophication; Environmental impact assessment; Phosphorus removal mechanisms; Soil infiltration; Reactive bed filters; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik; FORESTRY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES and LANDSCAPE PLANNING Soil science Soil chemistry; SKOGS- och JORDBRUKSVETENSKAP samt LANDSKAPSPLANERING Markvetenskap Markkemi;

    Abstract : For many surface waters, phosphorus (P) leaching is a serious problem that should be minimized to prevent eutrophication. In Sweden there is a demand for physical and technical development of high-performance P removal techniques to reduce phosphorus leaching from on-site wastewater treatment systems to the Baltic Sea.

    Abstract : This thesis studied the viability of recycling filter substrates as soil amendments after being used in on-site systems for phosphorus (P) removal from wastewater. Focus was put on the materials Filtra P and Polonite, which are commercial products used in compact filters in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Risk-Based Decision Model for Prioritizing Microbial Risk Mitigation Measures in Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Viktor Bergion; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; quantitative microbial risk assessment; microbial risks; pathogens; water quality modelling; drinking water system; cost-benefit analysis; decision support; drinking water; microbial risk;

    Abstract : Risk management of drinking water systems is crucial since our society relies on these systems to be robust and sustainable to supply safe drinking water now and to future generations. Pathogens may spread in drinking water systems and cause waterborne outbreaks resulting in human suffering and large costs to the society. READ MORE
