Modeling the effects of alternative mitigation measures on Atlantic salmon production in a regulated river.
As part of the investigation of a new and optimized environmental flow regime in a regulated river (Mandalselva, Norway), a modeling study was conducted on the trade-offs between the production of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts and the production of hydropower. Impacts of alternative flow regi...
Improved development and management of water resources in regulated river systems
The CEDREN EcoManage project was finalized in December 2015 and the main objective of the project was the improved development and management of energy and water resources. Three main axes of management parameters were studied; 1) Energy indicators, 2) Water consumption in the hydropower sector and ...
The use of multicriteria as a tool for setting environmental flows
Cost-effectivenes of physical measures versus spill of water past the Laudal Hydropower plant
Handbook for environmental design in regulated salmon rivers
This "Handbook for environmental design in regulated salmon rivers" is the most important result of the project "EnviDORR" (Environmentally Designed Operation of Regulated Rivers), popularly referred to as "more salmon, more power". Cross-disciplinary research has allow...
Demonstrating a new framework for the comparison of environmental impacts from small- and large-scale hydropower and wind power projects
Performance of a one-dimensional hydraulic model for the calculation of stranding areas in hydropeaking rivers
Fish stranding is a critical issue in rivers with peaking operations. The ability to accurately predict potential stranding areas can become a decisive factor to assess environmental impacts and to plan mitigation measures. The presented work shows that common procedures suggested in the literature ...
