Abstract [en]

In order to encounter the rising sea level, the county government of Stockholm has proposed three options; 1) not to do anything 2) raise the water level in Mälaren, 3) build barriers in the archipelago. In my theses I focus on option three where I investige what the consequences might be of building barriers in the archipelago. Moreover, I design one of the barriers in order to explore the possibilites of such an intervention.

Abstract [sv]

Stockholm hotas av havsvattenhöjningen och för att bemöta problemet har länsstyrelsen tagit fram tre förslag; 1) att inte göra någonting, 2) höja vattennivån i mälaren, 3) bygga barriärer i skärgården. I detta arbete utreds alternativ tre där jag tar reda på vad konsekvenserna skulle bli av ett byggande av barriärer i skärgården. Utöver stadsplaneringsskalan ritas en av barriärerna med fokus på hur en sådan intervention skulle kunna te sig.
