  1. 1. Biodiversity and green infrastructure in urban landscapes

    Author : Ulf G. Sandström; Per Angelstam; Abdul Khakee; Kjell Nilsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biologi; Birds in cities; Communication between sciences; Conservation planning; Landscape ecology; Swedish green planning; Urban green space; Urban planning; Urban vegetation; Biologi med ekologisk inriktning; Biology; Biologi; Biologi med ekologisk inriktning;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I evaluate the extent to which biodiversity is affected, and taken into consideration by, urban planning. Based on landscape ecology, I apply an interdisciplinary approach. READ MORE

  2. 2. Green Urban Drainage Infrastructure : Hydrology and Modelling of Grass Swales

    Author : Hendrik Rujner; Maria Viklander; Günther Leonhardt; Jiri Marsalek; Barraud Sylvie; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : The management of urban runoff has evolved along with the advancement of understanding of runoff environmental impacts. Besides the impacts on water quality in the receiving waters, the impacts on the urban hydrologic regime include reduced infiltration by the sealing of pervious land, reduced evapotranspiration by removal of vegetation, and the resulting increase of stormwater runoff peaks and volumes causing flooding, and ultimately degradation of receiving waters.

  3. 3. Urban, pluvial flooding : Blue-green infrastructure as a strategy for resilience

    Author : Johanna Sörensen; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; urbanhydrologi; pluviala översvämningar; resiliens; blå-grön infrastruktur; socio-teknisk förändring; Urban hydrology; Pluvial flooding; Resilience; Blue-green infrastructure; socio-technical transition;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates urban, pluvial flooding and if blue-green infrastructure, for handling of stormwater in urban green spaces, can be used as a strategy for resilient flood risk management. Spatial analyses of flood claims from insurance companies and the water utility company of Malmö are used to better understand the mechanisms and characteristics of pluvial flooding and how blue-green infrastructure impacts flood risk.

  4. 4. Blue-green stormwater systems for citywide flood mitigation : Monitoring, conceptualization, modeling, and evaluation

    Author : Salar Haghighatafshar; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; blue-green measures; drainage system; flooding; flood mitigation; hydrodynamic modeling; rainfall-runoff; stormwater;

    Abstract : Considering the growth in urbanization, leading to an increase in impervious surfaces, and the changing climate, enhancing the intensity and frequency of rainfall events, existing urban drainage networks—separate or combined sewer systems—are presumed to face substantially elevated hydraulic loads, causing pluvial floods in urban areas. There are several ways to address these challenges. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluation of bus priority strategiesin coordinated traffic signal systems

    Author : Johan Wahlstedt; Karl-Lennart Bång; Haris Koutsopoulos; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Kosonen Iisakki; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bus priority; public transport priority; transit priority; PTSP; TSP; traffic signal; traffic signal control; traffic signal control systems; self-optimising signal control; PRIBUSS; SIL simulation; traffic simulation; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Increasing congestion and environmental concerns have evoked an interest in promoting urban Public Transport (PT) the last decades. In 2012 the City of Stockholm adopted an “Urban mobility strategy” stating that public transport, cycling and walking should be prioritised over cars in central Stockholm. READ MORE
