HUR SYNEN PÅ HYDROLOGI VÄXT FRAM I SVERIGE, The development of a modern view of hydrology in Sweden
This paper aims at showing how a modern view of hydrology has developed in Sweden during the last thirty years. This is done by selecting some areas where Swedish research programmes have contributed to the development of the hydrological sciences, e.g. studies performed in so called representative basins, urban hydrological studies as well as research activities carried our in Swedish lakes. Since ground water phenomena and water transport problems in the unsaturated zone are of paramount importance they are also considered. Matemathical models of hydrological processes are also discussed. The paper ends with the supposition that the advancement of the hydrological sciences may in the longer run affect decision making in Swedish environmental programmes.
