  2. 2. Environmental management of water systems under uncertainty

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mark- och vattenteknik

    Author : Christian Baresel; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Water Resources Engineering; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik;

    Abstract : Hydrological drainage/river basins constitute highly heterogeneous systems of coupled natural and anthropogenic water and pollutant flows across political, national and international boundaries. These flows need to be appropriately understood, quantified and communicated to stakeholders, in order to appropriately guide environmental water system management. READ MORE

  3. 3. Managing water according to river basins Information management, institutional arrangements and strategic policy support - with focus on the EU Water Framework Directive

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Abstract : Today, there is a general notion that water resources are best managed according to their river basins. River basin management may be approached from a wide variety of angles. This thesis focuses on information management, institutional arrangements and strategic policy support, with special reference to the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). READ MORE

  4. 4. Road disasters? Modeling and assessment of Swedish roads within crucial climate conditions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alireza Nickman; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road; Flood; Moisture; Temperature; Groundwater; GIS; Uncertainity; Sweden; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : An efficient maintenance of roads to ensure high accessibility and durability of the transport capacity requires an understanding of how the hydrological response depends on both the road and the landscape characteristics. New methods and data were used to identify and explain interaction between roads and surrounding environment and their influence on hydrologic responses both in watershed scale and road-section scale.

  5. 5. Subsurface dams in water resource management methods for assessment and location

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Imran Ali Jamali; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Subsurface dams; Groundwater; GIS; Regolith thickness; Groundwater; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Natural groundwater storage can be improved by constructing a subsurface barrier that is a subsurface dam, in order to capture the subsurface flows and raise the groundwater levels (GWLs) in the sediment layers. Subsurface dams are preferable to surface dams because of lower evaporation, higher functionality, lower cost of construction, lessened risk for contamination and the possibility of utilizing land over the dam.
