Lea Levi is a PhD Student at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, Stockholm (Sweden) and at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture, University of Split (Croatia). Her research focuses on two major goals: 1) detecting and quantifiying antropogenic influences on hydro-climatic changes within Sava River Catchment; 2) developing a general quantitative characterization approach to the key nutrient transport and fractionation-retention-attenuation components, related to the new and old nutrient source inputs; the water flow and flow partitioning, the physical transport processes and time scales, the natural biogeochemical attenuation processes and time scales which determine the total nutrient cycling and mass delivery from the multiple sources in hydrological catchments to their downstream inland and coastal water recipients. The EGU 2012 poster presents a study done within a collaboration with the Stockholm University (Sweden) on “ Hydroclimatic change driven by land-water-use developments: the case of transboundary Sava River Catchment, South Eastern Europe”. The study detects evapotranspiration and runoff changes directly related to the land and water use changes associated with hydropower development and offers support for using basin water balance methodology at various scales and in different world regions in order to detect drivers of hydroclimatic effects by using proxy tools.
