Climate change effects on nitrogen loading to urban lakes: The case of Råcksta Träsk, Stockholm, Sweden
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 6th International Perspectives on Water Resources & the Environment, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
Nutrient loads to aquatic recipients can be expected to change due to climate change. In this work, we focus on nitrogen loads to the lake Råcksta Träsk in Stockholm, Sweden as an example of an urban ecosystem. A substance flow model is developed to describe the sources and pathways of nitrogen at present. A feed-back table approach is applied to indicate potential climate change effects on nitrogen source strengths and processes in pathways, using existing regional climate change scenarios. The tentative results indicate that biological, hydrological, meteorological and biogeochemical effects and change in human behavior as response to climate change may lead to altered nitrogen flows through an urban catchment.
