  1. 1. Regional studies of the optical, chemical and microphysical properties of atmospheric aerosols Radiative impacts and cloud formation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Author : Admir Créso Targino; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atmospheric aerosols; particles; optical properties; cloud; ice crystals; chemical composition; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Atmospheric particles are ubiquitous in the Earth’s atmosphere and have potential to influence atmospheric chemistry, visibility, global climate and human health, particularly downwind from major pollution sources. The main objective of this thesis was to investigate questions pertaining to the microphysical, chemical and optical properties of aerosol particles by using in situ data collected during four experiments carried out in different regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

  2. 2. Isotope-based source apportionment of black carbon aerosols in the Eurasian Arctic

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Patrik Winiger; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Black Carbon; Radiocarbon; Air Pollution; Arctic Amplification; Climate Change; Arctic Haze; Atmospheric Transport Modeling; Emission Inventory; Carbon Isotopes; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Aerosols change the Earth's energy balance. Black carbon (BC) aerosols are a product of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and biomass burning and cause a net warming through aerosol radiation interactions (ari) and aerosol cloud interactions (aci). READ MORE

  3. 3. Source-Receptor Modeling of Air Pollution : Assessment of Source Contributions: Source Characterization and Chemometric Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för tillämpad miljövetenskap (ITM)

    Author : Emma Hedberg Larsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Particles; Source-receptor modeling; PMF; Elemental source profiles; Levoglucosan; Wood combustion; Air pollution; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Particles released to the atmosphere from anthropogenic sources affect the Earth’s climate as well as the health of the population. Anthropogenic sources of atmospheric particles are e.g. the combustion of biomass and fossil fuels, road, brake and tire wear and various industrial activities. READ MORE
