  1. 1. Response of Bolivian Altiplano Lakes to Seasonal and Annual Climate Variations

    Author : Ramiro Pillco; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENSO; terminal lake; bathymetry; lake level; water balance; lake routing; paleolakes; climate change; precipitation pattern; intermittent rivers.; Desaguadero River; Lake Titicaca; Lake Poopó;

    Abstract : The Bolivian Altiplano is situated between two mountain ranges, the western and eastern central Andes in South America. It has two major lakes, Lake Titicaca to the north, and Lake Poopó to the south, which both are important for the nature as well as for the living conditions on the Altiplano. The two lakes are the remnants of large paleolakes. READ MORE

    Abstract : Water is a vital resource for survival on the Earth. Sustainable management of water resources is therefore required for the wellbeing of present and future generations. A cornerstone of water resources management is scientific guidance supported by relevant data (in terms of quantity and quality). READ MORE

  4. 4. Transport and Fate of Escherichia coli in Unsaturated Porous Media

    Author : Emma Engström; Berit Balfors; Chin-Fu Tsang; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Contaminant transport modeling; Bacterial fate; Unsaturated zone; Retention; Straining; Escherichia coli;

    Abstract : The unsaturated zone could provide an effective barrier against pathogenic microbes entering the groundwater. Knowledge relating to microbial fate in this zone is therefore important for increased understanding of groundwater vulnerability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Essays on Industrial Development and Political Economy of Africa
