Formål / Sammendrag

The PhD project investigates the suitability of adsorbent amended media for infiltration based swales.

It consists in: A characterization study of the water quality of urban runoff; Adsorption capacity for toxic metals of several candidate media for later field implementation; Infiltration capacity of the candidate media, and impact of freezing/thawing conditions on the infiltration; Real scale tests with selected media from previous studies.

The aim is to identify factors that might determine the hydrological balance in an infiltration based swale.
