  1. 1. Benthic metabolism and sediment nitrogen cycling in Baltic sea coastal areas the role of eutrophication, hypoxia and bioturbation

    University dissertation from Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm Univeristy

    Author : Stefano Bonaglia; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eutrophication; Sediment; Benthic Flux; Nitrogen Cycle; Denitrification; Baltic Sea; Biogeochemistry; biogeokemi; marin- och brackvattensekologi; Marine and Brackish Water Ecology; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : Eutrophication is one of the greatest threats for the Baltic Sea, and one of its more critical consequences is bottom water hypoxia. Nutrient enrichment and oxygen-depletion affect both the deep central basins and a number of coastal areas, even though strategies for nutrient reduction have lately been implemented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determination of mercury chemical speciation in the presence of low molecular mass thiols and its importance for mercury methylation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Van Liem-Nguyen; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mercury; methylmercury; LMM thiol; mass spectrometry; biogeochemistry; soil; sediment; ICP; WinSGW; modeling; S XANES; ligand exchange; stability constant; boreal wetlands; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Methylmercury (MeHg) is a neurotoxic compound that threatens the well-being of humans and wildlife. It is formed through the methylation of inorganic mercury (HgII) under suboxic/anoxic conditions in soils, sediment and waters. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Baltic Sea Wave Field Impacts on the Sediment and Biogeochemistry

    University dissertation from Tema vatten i natur och samhälle

    Author : Anette Jönsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydraulic engineering; HYPAS; Wave modelling; Significant wave height; Wave energy; Vattenteknik; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Water engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Vattenteknik;

    Abstract : The wave field in the Baltic Sea has been modelled for a two-year period with the spectral wave model HYPAS. There is a large seasonal variation in the field and a minor annual one, both reflect the wind variation in the area. Since the Baltic Sea is fetch limited, the dominant wind direction is important for the maximum wave heights. READ MORE

  4. 4. Benthic fluxes of biogenic elements in the Baltic Sea Influence of oxygen and macrofauna

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Nils Ekeroth; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sediment biogeochemistry; Bioturbation; Benthic nutrient fluxes; Bottom water oxygenation; Box corer; Sediment sampling; marin ekologi; Marine Ecology;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates how benthic fluxes of phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N), and silicon (Si) change upon oxygenation of anoxic soft bottoms in the brackish, eutrophicated Baltic Sea. Direct measurements in situ by benthic landers demonstrated that fluxes of dissolved inorganic P (DIP) from anoxic bottom sediments in the Eastern Gotland Basin are higher than previously thought (Paper I).
